I am not quite finished although my countertops are in.  As you can see I still have this built in cabinet to refinish.  Needs paint and doors (stuck in my garage because of the snow.) or I could leave the shelves open which is the trend these days.  Haven't quite decided yet on that.  Currently being used as storage for things I can't fit in the cabinets.

The benches are actually upper cabinets that are 18" tall, which happened to be the same height as my chairs.  I still need to make cushions for the tops.  The base of the table came from an old table that was left by my tenant.    My friend Sam has come back in a different capacity.  Friends only and he has accepted that that is the way it will be or not at all.  He pickled the top of it and it looks really good I think.

He also built me the second drawer down that fits perfectly.

I am undecided as to whether to paint the inside of the cabinet white or the color of the walls.  The color it is is what the kitchen was before the flood.  It appears the same as the new color but is actually a few shades lighter.

Hope all your decorating and projects are going well.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This looks great Peggy. What about a totally contrasting color for the inside of the cabinet? Yellow? Or red? -- My style, as you know, is bold, so that's what I would do, but I think the wall color would look great too. I think a color is better than white. The cabinet is so big and white, that I think the color breaks it up nicely. I am sure whatever you do will look awesome.
