GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
is my un-official motto for our Dutch colonial re-do.
Speaking of good things, check this out:
That’s right. There’s your G.O. + your drywall (!!) in our kitchen.
On that wall we’ll have a refrigerator flanked by 2 pantries;
behind it is the bedroom closet,
+ just to the right of G.O. is the door** to our powder room.
**I’m still planning to use something like this:
Back to the exciting drywall photo ops.
Here’s another view into our kitchen,
taken from the adjacent dining room.
The sink + stove counter will fit underneath the windows to the left,
+ our island will be at the approximate same locale as that trash can.

In an effort to assist you in visualizing our finished room,
here’s a photo of my inspiration kitchen:
I’m loving just about everything here,
+ I’m basing a lot of my design choices on it.

But back to the in-progress squalor that we presently have:
At this point, I suspect G.O. was weary of his snapshot being included,
+ of course, his devoted companion, Dory, was going wherever he went.
All that insulation will soon be stuffed
between the joists of our kitchen + bedroom ceilings.
The large windows at left
are in the large, west-facing bay in our dining room.
Here’s a photo of said-same taken from the yard.
You can see just a glimpse of the kitchen windows to the their left:
These window bays (there’s also 1 in the living room)
are pretty much the reasons why I wanted to buy our house!

But I digress.
Back to the kitchen windows:
As you can see, the wiring is in place for light fixtures above our sink.
Because of this sort of awesomeness . . .
. . . I decided we’ll have some sort of wall sconces above our sink windows, too.
What are your thoughts?
At this moment (always subject to change, of course),
here’s my choice:
I’m pretty sure this is an exterior light, but it’s all good.
It comes in 2 sizes, so I was going to order 1 of each
for a side-by-side size comparison.

Meanwhile, here’s another look-see at my inspiration kitchen:
Thanks, as always, for viewing,
+ stay tuned!
