Hey guys. Sorry for lack of the posts. A lot is happening at the Cottage, but everything is covered up so it’s hard to take pictures. As for round ups and mood boards and inspiration posts, well those take time and I’m positively swamped with design and construction work. Its stressful and exciting in the most wonderful way. Can we settle on a mini-kitchen update?
The last time I showed the kitchen it was stripped down to the studs (or in the case of the outside wall, down to the stone.) We insulated and drywalled and installed new prefinished wood floors. I really wanted to save the old sub-floor but it was too damaged! We put the old cabinets back in the kitchen in new locations.
The cabinets have been primed and you can see a sneak peek of the new color. (It’s BM Deep Ocean, but only one coat so far, so it will be a little richer.) There will be open shelves over the sink. That soffit hides plumbing pipes- necessary since I moved the toilet upstairs. Still not sure if I will try to hide it or not. This is only a temporary kitchen in theory. (But you know how life is, I may end up wanting to spend my money elsewhere…)
As you can see, there aren’t a lot of cabinets AT ALL. I also plan to add an Ikea island, so that should help. I really will have to be efficient in this space, though. Also, the wall cabinet is too high. It was lower and I had Angelo raise it but then I decided it was too high. Hehe, thank goodness he is patient. Thinking I’ll line them up with the top of the window.
Here is the floor plan again. I know many of you had various opinions about how you would lay it out, but this works for me for now. I didn’t want to move the plumbing for the sink. (Super budget renovation, remember?) Plus its 5 steps from the sink to the range, so its not bad at all.

That’s all for me. Have a great weekend! I’ll be painting… again 🙂
