we build our house in 2000.  My father in law build our cabinets from birch plywood. He did a really good job building them, but the kitchen lacked detail. The doors were flat and none of the cabinets went to the ceiling.  It was pretty plain. So about 5yrs or so ago I decided to redo and remodel.

I added drawers under all the cabinets.  Then I raised some to the
cabinets to the ceiling.
Added detail over the sink and
changed the cabinet under the sink to add some more detail.

I rebuilt my island, painted it black for a contrasting
color.  Then I added trim to the flat doors to add some depth and detail.  Paint it cream then stained

I liked it for a long time then it came time for a new coat
of paint so I decided to change it up a bit.  And maybe go BLACK!!!
I have always wanted a bar with barstools.  So I found this huge chunky leg  in my shop.  I only had one so I thought I would just rip it in two
and put it on a 8x8.  But my husband said he could turn me one on the lathe..  How sweet is that, he's so good to me.  So he did.
 Then I had this other awesome turning.  This one we did rip and put it on both sides of the stove.

I wanted to make the crown look bigger so I got a board and added more crown to it.


Bar starting to take shape.

I pulled off the trim on my bathroom too.

Stay tuned for the completed kitchen  refresh.
and   Christmas décor.......
