The kitchen is finished (we think). I thought it might be nice to post a few pictures so you can see how nice it turned out.
This was before we moved in .
There were two small bars, which we took out to make one large bar.
We re-covered the bar stools and painted the walls gold. (I painted and Ed re-touched my messy places.)
The pantry door has cabinet panels, so it's a big surprise to open it and find a nice, large pantry behind the doors.
This composite picture shows the right, middle and left side of the pantry. The shelves on the right are deep enough for appliance storage. There is so much storage space in this kitchen that I actually have completely empty shelves! I love it!
