I enjoy reading this stuff -- I own an 1854 house which is definitely O-L-D by U.S. standards (although I know not across the pond)! I still don't know what to do about my kitchen. We had the cabinets torn apart and refubished (we painted, but had a pro put new drawer boxes and shelves in), and had corian counters done (considered stone, but the kitchen tends to be cold in the winter, and I didn't want anything that would make it seem colder yet). Some day I'd like the floors stripped and polyeurethaned and the walls between counters and cupboards/shelves tiled, then maybe I can make up my mind abou the upper parts of the other walls (lower part is beadboard siding that we painted when we did the cabinetry). I really love the kitchen, but tend to get so bogged down in decisions that I do nothing, and hubby and are are terrible at DIY.

Your new kitchen looks great!

Have you thought about having your walls insulated? it has made a huge difference to "Shambles"

I didn't see them either. In fact, a "forbidden" memo pops up.

Seems some get it and others don't. Sorry about that, must be really annoying. Perhaps one of the Moderators might know what is going on.

It probably has something to do w/your 'cookies' or virus program.

I did see the pics, and they're GREAT!!!! Isn't it wonderful when you do something like a kitchen redo start to finish? Lots of work, lol, but when it's done, you're just grinning ear-to-ear!

" If you are checking this thread Jean, can you help?"

I donned my red cape and found my instructions for seeing pix Dave posts!!!

right click on the red 'X'
left click on 'properties'
copy the http address (URL)
click 'cancel' box
paste address in Address line
click enter

Love the kitchen Dave - also recognized a couple of 'our' cookbooks!! What are the countertops? Is the stove gas? Looks big and sturdy and great!!

I had similar flooring in the barn and I just loved it!

I don't see a red X. I get the following page when I click the link. Romany, if you want to email me the pics I can upload them.
