Kitchen is Done!

 The kitchen remodel is finished!  I will be sharing the behind the scenes 
and how-tos another day.  Today is just showing how it all looks with the new countertops, 
back splash and sink in place.  Above is the mini hutch I created out of the cabinet 
over the stove that was never used for anything..
 I added bead board wallpaper to the interior to finish it off 
and it has added lots of charm to the tiny kitchen.
 The new Formica counter tops spiffed up the kitchen and gave it a much lighter look.
  I hit the edges of the Formica with Old White Chalk Paint and it rendered the seams almost invisible. 
Tip: don't order the new FX Formica with a "custom edge" That is the old style black line edge. Order it with a "preformed edge" to get the formica without any seams showing.
 The big excitement was retrofitting a vintage 1940's drainboard sink into the scheme. 
 Hubs and I love this sink! It is as deep as the old one was and is wider by quite a bit. 
Yes we LOVE this old sink!
Here is the kitchen before painting cabs, new counter tops and sink.
And the after~overall this kitchen is so much brighter now!
 The star of the day~chips and all~from Craigslist for $75 from one man's cellar 
to my kitchen!  We put in a new faucet with a gooseneck silhouette. 
Hubs did the plumbing work, and I was his number one helper.
Does anyone need any dishes washed?
