Finished Traditional Cream Kitchen

posted by: clergychick on 07.24.2010 at 07:36 pm in Kitchens Forum

I found this forum after most of our decisions were made, so I post my finished kitchen with some trepidation! Some of our choices may put it in the "quirky" catagory, but it's a good kitchen to cook in and fits the style of our home (1987 version of Victorian) and our personal style.

We didn't make many changes to the lay-out which we had lived with for three years and liked.

The mantle/hood is a replica of a mantle in the farmhouse my grandfather grew up in. We originally thought we'd use that mantle, but it was in too bad of shape (house has been empty for years). I want to decorate the shelf better so that there is something interesting to reflect in the mirror: we didn't want a pendant light over the island to block it since it is the focal point of the room.

We started with deconstruction on April 21, and finished on June 27.

I've enjoyed reading this forum as a border-line lurker: this is a good, generous community, and even those of us who do not post as often are enriched by the wealth of experience and expertise shared here. Peace to all. Amy

From the "Read Me" thread...

When your kitchen is complete, please submit it to the Finished Kitchens Blog! This way your kitchen will join others in inspiring and helping newcomers!

Add your kitchen to the FKB!

Hi ncamy!
I am so sorry for the delay in adding kitchens to the FKB!
As jsweenc pointed out, there's a backlog of finished kitchens (as seen in the Coming Soon section of the FKB). These kitchens were submitted to me by their owners as ready-for-the-FKB. So it's actually me that has held up those two dozen kitchens from being posted. When I posted a new kitchen last night I was astounded that it had been two months since the previous kitchen was posted. I've been busy with this-and-that but there's no excuse to be 2 months late. :-(
Again please accept my apologies.. and I will be diligent about getting them posted in the next week.
(But I am so glad that you use the FKB. It makes all this work worthwhile.)

And yes, the difference between the Discussions section and the Gallery section can be confusing.
We originally used the Gallery section to post all finished kitchens; there is much less activity in the Gallery and posts do not scroll off as quickly as in the Discussions section. I had requested finished kitchens to be posted in the Gallery section because, unfortunately, a kitchen can scroll off the Discussions section before I can get it added to the FKB. It is also much easier for me to find a finished kitchen in the gallery. So that's my reasoning.
In the future I will save the posts on my harddrive; so feel free to post in either section. But please either email me or submit the FKB Checklist to notify me that a kitchen is ready.

btw... I don't always see posts in the Discussions section (like this one) so please email me if you have any questions.

A message regarding new advertising

Starting February 17, 2010 some GardenWeb users may notice a new form of advertising, called contextual advertising, within our forums.

Here are some answers to commonly-asked questions about this type of advertising.

Is someone reading my messages to insert these links?

The in-text links that appear within the forums are automatically generated by our software and are based on keywords, so your privacy is maintained.

Why have these ads been introduced on GardenWeb?

In order to continue to offer free services such as GardenWeb's community, we rely on advertising to help cover the costs of running such a large and popular site.

RE: Rabbit trail -- Mirrors in the kitchen (Follow-Up #12)

posted by: histokitch on 03.20.2010 at 06:46 am in Kitchens Forum

Any glass place can antique silver a piece of glass. My glass was a window pane from the original windows in the Flatiron Blg in NYC. An architectural salvage place in NYC silvered it for me. It only matters to me, though, because I love that building. Any glass will do. If you google "antiqued mirror glass" you'll get some good websites.

Ticor sinks: Ticor Sinks at Galaxy Tool Supply:
I think this plus their eBay site are the only places to get them reasonably priced...but there may others, Google "Ticor" + the model you're looking for.

Tapmaster: Tapmaster:

I don't know if there are other places to get these from...again, Google it!

Never-MT: Never-MT:

I think this is the only place you can get one from.

Pop up Outlets: Popup Mocketts:

There may be other vendors/sellers, use Google. (Pufp?)

Plugmold/Power Strips:

There may be other vendors/sellers, use Google.

Have you noticed that "Google" (or other search engine) is your "new best friend"? :-)

Note: One reason people haven't specified where they got things is that most things are available many places. Another reason is that you have to be careful not to "advertise" or promote a business on this site.
