Thank you. We were looking for a semi-tropical feel since we love the coast. The appliances are stainless, hence no magnets stuck to the front. Mizzphinz loves that, because my bottle cap collection doesn't go on the front that way. Down in Florida I had 250 or so different bottle caps with magnets in them on the fridge. One for each different beer I tried while I was in Florida.

Did I mention that I only lived in Florida for about 550 days?

There is one glaring problem with the picture with the dogs. We *still* haven't finished the back of the cabinet that the black dog (Sparky) is standing in front of. We had to order the beadboard *4* times to get pieces that weren't beaten up and/or the wrong color. I just need to cut it and glue it now, but I haven't done it.

Exactly JP!! I like the "realness" and the feel of daily life in your picture Charlie!! (also made me feel like I could take a pic of our kitchen as well )

Bucky any pic containing your boy is a great pic!!

Billdolfski, what a unique, bright colour scheme!! I am sure it makes your cooking adventure all the more fun!!

LOVE all the kitchens. You want to see a mess? Naaaaaa - I'm too embarrassed to take a pic. I've cooked this week but I sure haven't cleaned up! Here's my potrack but that's all you can see!

Oh well, I guess it didn't work

Everyone has such great kitchens! I love things about them all - the cleanliness (which I will never know what that's like) and the colors (my cabinets are dark green so I do love color), the brightness (mine's dark), the floors (my dog chewed mine up and it's still "missing") and what I love most about them all - I can see and feel the love! Especially in those angel faces!!!!!

That floor looks a lot like the paper that used to be on the shelves in the hallway linen closet at my house.

GB, measured the kitchen last night, it is 11 by 16 between cabinets. I have another fully stocked and functioning kitchen in the basement too. But that one is only used for Passover to avoid cleaning upstairs.

CharlieD.My kitchen isn't spotless either .Believe me I shuffled around a bunch of stuff to take my pics.I used to be very good about cleaning but thank goodness I got over that.My house isn't perfect because I have much better things to do than clean all day,day after day after day after day!
