The range hood was installed this week and I just love the design. (click here to see the inspiration post)
Found a metal artist through my good friend Nancy, he just returned from the
Rhode Island School of Design, which is like Mecca for us artists.
I am so pleased with it..the pleats..the blend of contemporary and traditional...Ryan did a great job!
Don't you love when you see it in your head and it is even better when you see the idea in real life?
We still need to put up the stainless steel back splash, crown, deal with the lighting and
Ryan is coming back to trim out the bottom of the range hood but I am
finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Which is a really good thing!
The Aga Pro is in and we are now cooking with gas. We had some issues with install
because when the range finally arrived here in the states, we realized it was on 220 power
(European power-this is why you fry out your hairdryer if you try to plug it in to an outlet there)
and we are wired for 110.
So we had to have 220 power run to the kitchen.
We still need to finish the floors, counter tops, put in a new window, tile and
get the John Boos butcher block island.
My husband is going to make me some cute shelves for this wall
but until then we are using this little pine one to store our glassware.
Once the kitchen is done and I have a better idea on how things flow,
I will reorganize this pine hutch but for now it works.
I got this cute little cross hook from this great booth called Whimsy at the Kane County
Flea Market in Illinois when we were on our girls trip a few weeks back.
I also met Stacey from A Sort of Fairytale and we shopped at her cute booth too.
It was so fun talking to her...it is funny about how with blogs you feel as though
you know someone, even though you have never met them in person.
This is how I am with her- instant friends.
I have a thing for Match pewter..not the plate or glasses, just all the spoons and accessories.
Here is our little coffee station in the kitchen. We drink a lot of coffee in our house and it is good coffee. We aren't gadget people but to us a good investment is a fabulous coffee maker!
We are finally making progress.
My favorite fall decoration "Queen of the Harvest"!
The window is going to be installed in a couple of weeks, so once that happens I will
give you a progress report on the kitchen.
