Thanks. This photo was taken around 8:30 in the morning. It can look like a tornado hit it by lunch time....

What! A! Kitchen! Rock. It must be a real pleasure working there - at least first thing in the morning when you show up. It's probably quiet and empty, just you and your thoughts...until you open the door and mayhem begins! Mayhem is good, though, with people pouring in and calling out orders. It's what pays the bills.

IF I WERE YOUNGER! I would immediately sell the farm and move!

ALAS & WOE ...Aside from the fact I doubt I could handle the pressure for 3 days let alone 7, don't think you would put up with my slow 'n indecisive actions on the line! (nor would your customers!)

Sending my little dragonettes out on a search for you. One should drop at the door any day now.

It's a 90 year old house with all the original woodwork. I plan to keep the arts and crafts look intact, and renovate it accordingly with new cabinets that fit that style. I also want to take that modern, but strangely dated, center island out and add a large wooden prep table that will also accommodate seating.

My favorite part is the walk-in pantry. Although it looks as if it was added later, it's still kind of a neat feature that you don't see much in modern kitchens.

Long story short, The challenge will be to make upgrades that give me additional storage and a few modern touches, but without destroying the character of a 1920s kitchen. I'd like to imagine it as a space where my grandmother would have felt at home.





Please may I come and be your cook-housekeeper?

That is the kitchen of my dreams. Had one that size in my last house but now live in my deceased parents' home which has a rabbit hutch of a kitchen (and that's after Ma had it extended!!)

Right now my kitchen looks like it's been half demoed and only the stove and sink are new. I'm not demoing the counters until I have enough pallet wood prepared to do it all. Right now I have about half done, I've been planing and adding tongue and groove to the wood I do have. Of course, this has been put on hold since my heart just was not into it for the last month

It's still warm enough for me to work in Dad's shop but once it gets cold, I'll have to be patient some more. I still have the carpet to pull up and the pad underneath to scrape up. We have decided to do an interim floor with Paper Bags How long this will remain is up in the air. I'm saving now for a solid Oak or Maple floor.

I dream of painting the cabinets a lighter color, but Shrek is adamant about leaving them be. I am changing the hardware.
