Exciting Times: Kitchen Design & Architectural Salvage

By on Mar 19, 2012

It is so much fun going to the house now, because every time I do, something new and exciting has happened.

D found these doors on Craigslist.  They were salvaged out of a country club in Kansas City.

We bought two sets.  This is going in to the media room, off the living room.  And the other set will go between our master bedroom and bath.

The eagle has an “M” etched into the frosted glass which is perfect, because that happens to be the initial of our last name.  :)

The trim is in, and D and dad worked on staining that this weekend.

And perhaps most exciting for me is the cabinets and granite!  Junior’s bathroom:

And the kitchen!  The cabinet doors are on.

The open spaces from left are open shelving, refrigerator, dishwasher, double ovens.  And the sink is in the corner.

And the island is set, and it will house the cook top and the microwave.

And the granite!  The glorious, beautiful, veiny granite.

I didn’t know what those wires were for, but D informed me that they’re a telephone jack and cable.  Fancy!  Now I can watch American Pickers cook right along with Bobby Flay.

So we had a very productive weekend, but Junior, my mom and I did get the chance to sneak away to attend a St. Patrick’s Day Parade. 


Getting bored.

Over it.

How was your weekend?  Did you kiss any Irish?  I totally did.. thank goodness I’m married to him.  ;)
