[Edit: Check out the final result photos here and here! For more photos of construction, click here and here for the Vent Hood tutorial. This was featured in Romantic Homes September 2011 more info on that here.]
Here are a few more pictures of the progress of my kitchen! The hardware needs to go on the drawers and doors, some trim needs to be finished, and everything needs a coat of white paint and voila! C'est Fini!
I love the now open feel I have! I can't wait to fluff everything. I want a very French farm feel in here with utilitarian items displayed along with rustic items and fine china--alltogether. Sur la même bateau--as a side note, this is a wonderful song by my favorite singer, Celine Dion! You can find it on this CD--I highly recommend it, even if you don't speak French!
I love it--my tole chandelier now really fits the room! I lost some cabinet space, but gained more usable storage, plus with everything ripped out I was able to add a dishwasher and garbage disposal!
I love my new vent hood! The corbels were a last minute addition--I found them at the Habitat ReStore Monday during my lunch break! They were a dollar each!
I love these shelf brackets! I've held on to them for about two years now. I'm glad I bought them when I did! Similar antique ones on eBay are selling for around $70.00 a pair! I have about $25 in all of them!
Here is a close up of the brackets! I will break-down materials and sources if you'd like to replicate this look in your home! Check back soon for the completed project! This entire project was completed for just over $1,000.00! Page Davis would be proud!
