Kitchen Update, Appliances!

Appliances were delivered this morning. Here comes my stove! That's one of the tin ceiling tiles in the foreground.

My microwave and stove. Aren't they sparkly!!! You can also see my farm sink there and the bead board backsplash. Love it! What shall I put back in that corner!!

Refrigerator is not ready for prime time yet. Doors will stay off till they connect it and move it back into position.

My dishwasher will stay wrapped till they get all the plumbing and electric hooked up behind there. It's stainless too.

This is the pattern on my tin ceiling tiles. They are 24 inches square. I think they are going up on Monday. Ray has to figure out some problems. You know, old house, nothing's square!

The wainscoting is up around the kitchen with it's little ledge. Of course, nothing has been painted yet. My walls above the white bead board, will be a sage green.

The stone guys were here Wednesday making the template for my countertops. I'm hoping for soapstone but it's very hard to find in this area and has to be shipped in which may make the price just too high. If I can't have soapstone : (( I will have black granite.

This is the HUGE drawer under the window seat.

Maybe I'll make a soft cushion out of an old quilt for the seat.

I'm going to LOVE this window seat! Squeaker, my cat, has already spotted it.
That's it for now. Next showing will be after the floor and ceiling are in!! : ))


  1. Oh, Shirley, I LOVE everything in your kitchen. You are doing a beautiful job. Bead board is my choice if I ever take down the tile backdrop, too. I will one day put in ceiling tiles like these, also, when I outgrow all the art I had painted on the walls & ceiling. Dying to see the finished room ... so I can drool more. Beautiful!!

    Have a wonderful weekend ~
    Hugs, Marydon

  11. Hi Shirley,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I think your kitchen is going to look beautiful. I love the ceiling tiles and my favorite thing is the window seat. I have always wanted one. I think you will like the black board paint. I love it. It works just like one and erases like one too. Can't wait to see your finished kitchen.
