This is the old kitchen. It no longer exists. (Apologies if you have already seen this on Facebook)
Cabinets replaced with IKEA Adel Beech. Which look like this, without the blur. Unless of course, you haven’t had enough coffee, which would never happen in my kitchen.
Countertops replaced with a lovely speckly greenish corianish grout-free counter, like this.
L and the pesky overhang gone. Left side extended down to the sliding glass door, ending with a wine rack. L replaced by an island, which will be pushed out about two feet (into the family room). Island will have two outlets…one for Miss Alex and her Kitchen Aid (in pistachio, and the color inspiration for the room) and one for Grandpa Bill’s glue gun. The side of the island facing the family room will be a bookcase. Dishwasher and sink moved down and recycling cupboard added to the right of the sink.
The sink is replaced by a big ol’ honkin apron front farm sink. I mean, it’s really big. Funky overhead fluorescent lights replaced with recessed can lights. A statement lamp will go over the island. At the moment I am dreaming of this or this. (Opinions welcomed.)
Cabinets redistributed. New cooktop and oven, new fridge, in a cabinet. With a working icemaker (haven’t had that in years).
Bright and perky yellow repainted as a lovely sage green (testing Martha Stewart Rainwater and Glidden Soft Sage now), and the backsplash area done with chalkboard paint. (Now take a moment, really, and image how cool that will be, and how much you want to come and visit so you can draw on the walls.) The family room will change too….recessed lights, the blue may stay, but the furniture will change from a family-art-activity room to a more grown up coffee-and-cranberry-scone space (but not too grown up). I have my heart set on some Eames chairs (reproductions of course) and may sell my soul for them.
Tomorrow IKEA delivers 199 boxes.
My head could explode.
