WOOHOO! I got it to work. Here's one of each wall in the working area of the kitchen, don't have any of the dining room. We have only had this kitchen for a little over a year. What we had before was not worth looking at!

Texasgirl, your kitchen does not look simple by any means! You should be very proud.

I love the fancy cabinets too - just not the fancy price tag! We currently have white cabinets and I would love to have wood - it would just match my decor and taste better. I am not putting down white cabinets, so please no one misinterpret me. I have seen alot of kitchens with white cabinets that are beautiful. My last house had white cabinets too. Our countertops are in bad shape so we might as well replace those too. Anyways, I believe this will be next year's project. I would absolutely love some new appliances too - but we replaced fridge, stove and dw less than 3 years ago. We'll see - I guess it depends on how well my money tree does in the back yard .

I had white in my other house too. We put in new cabinets on the bottom and left the tops because I liked the old look of them and painted them white to match the house. It was built in the 50's.

Alix, I love your wood kitchen too!

Thanks texasgirl and Michelemarie. They are maple and they work beautifully with the lovely tiles on my floor. Not that you can see those! I had stark white everything before. White tile floor, white cabinets and a sunshine ceiling. So now I have warmth in my kitchen. Aaaaa! Much more me.

Its really cool. It looks like a wave and you can train the lights whereever you want them.

Alix, do you know where you got it? Or the brand of it, since, you probably got it at a place we don't have here. I've got to have 2 of those!! If you notice in mine, there is an ugly flourecent light and a stained glass looking thing. I like the stained glass one, but, nothing matches and I would love to have something at both ends that I can move around like that to optimize the lighting in here.

Alix I always knew you had good taste. We have a light very similar to that. It is a wave too with 4 lights that can be pointed anywhere.
