I've had tile in every place we lived, that's what dh does, but, this time for some reason, he doesn't want it. I think he just doesn't want to do the work!! I really miss it too. It's so easy to clean up and it just looks so much better!

I love the tile too! That is part of my (dream) renovation. My dad can do it, but one thing is connected to the next - sink - counter - backsplash and cabinets - walls - appliances - maybe next year - anyways....

CharlieD - I love potracks myself. I have a low ceiling so mine hangs pretty low (DH doesn't like it that low) - our potrack is mounted into the studs in the ceiling. I have been looking for years for one that I liked (since I lived in Vegas in 99!) I like this one because it is wrought iron and has the cut italian glass in it. It is really pretty up close, the picture doesn't do it justice. Believe it or not, I found my at TJ Maxx - it had to have been mismarked because I called the company for an installation question and they were floored where I got it and what I paid! Good luck in your search and thanks for noticing!

What my pictures don't show is the new stainless pot rack/pot bar I hung over the window. It's almost flush up against the wall, and the opening for the window gives room for the pans I have up there to swing a little sideways. Best $25 I've spent in a while. It freed up a rolling shelf in the cabinet to the left of the stove, so I can put my baking pans and sheets down there instead of crammed in the cabinet between the dishwasher and the fridge.

here's mine

I don't like a lot of 'clutter', but I DO like a lot of counter and storage space.

Nice Z! I like it. The spice rack in the back is really cool!

I just looked at the pictures I took of my kitchen, it is embarrassing to even look at them, what a mess. My wife has been working crazy hours, I just donít have enough time to cook, take care of kids, and clean up. So, donít judge me, please. Now, how do I get the pictures in here?

Oh, here are some of them. Okay, so the first one is the left side of the kitchen as you walk into it. The second is our sunroom turn dining room, we do not have formal dining room, as it is beeing used as library/piano room. So for major events we just set tables in the living room. There wouldn't be enough room in the formal dining room anyway. Oh, yeah, thouse are the little monsters. Boys were never that hard. Boys are not in the picks.
