Speed post


It's been a crazy 5 months, but here's what happens when I get the chance to gut the first floor of a 30 year old house in need of a facelift......
New painted maple cabinets, Granite tops, Tumled limestone backsplash.....
Awesome Wolf range, second Dacor under counter oven, fireclay porcelin sink
I won't even mention the cost of the faucet.....

Totally custom and built on site bench seat, I even made the v-groove paneling from scratch.
Custom dry bar w/kitchen aid wine fridge with 3 seperate temp zones

seeded glass in the upper cabinets, granite top, travertine backsplash....

The big red furniture piece, Built in our shop by one of the greatest craftsman I've had the pleasure of learning from, finished offsite, installed by me

Same cabinet, just a close up of hardware and rope mould fronts

It's not often I get to demolish, frame, set cabinets, and do all the trimwork by myself, but to be honest, since this one was all me from start to finish, it's one I am the most proud of. Next week, I'll give up pics of the mantle, powder room, and laundry to finish up the view from my office...maybe even some knitting pics. Relax this weekend, I know I am......

Gorgeous kitchen! I wish I knew someone as talented as you when I was re-doing our kitchen last year...but then we were just trying to get it ready to sell. What are you knitting now?

Total fab, Matt. Wish you could refinish my little cubby-hole kitchen. Or at least show my landlord what to do. Like nothing touches the walls. But guess I should be glad I at least have appliances that work. :)
