Amazing Kitchen Bargains

Progress continues to be made in our Dutch colonial kitchen.

Slowly but surely, the IKEA cabs are being assembled + put into place.


I really need to make a decision on the sconces above the window.

Here’s what I’d originally planned to order (from Home Depot):

lighting -- kitchen over sink gilded iron

However, since I’m currently thinking warm metal hardware

for our warm oak island . . .


. . . I’m going to see what I can find

 in the oh-so-trendy antique brass.

Disclaimer: yes, that would be mixing one’s metals,

but I am okay with that.

I do think that I need to repeat the antiques brass,

at least once, for continuity purposes.

What say ye?

Yes or no on the mixing of metal finishes?

Meanwhile, please notice our sink cabinet below the windows:


We bought this farmhouse sink from IKEA:

With this IKEA faucet:

G.O. didn’t really want that sink, but really.

We kind of had to get it.

Both the sink + faucet were in a display kitchen of discontinued cabinetry,

+ they were crazy inexpensive!

That’s why we got such a great deal on our refrigerator,

as it, too, was being discontinued.

Here ’tis, in its space beside the pantry in our kitchen:


It will be flush with the cabs after it’s hooked up + installed.

Next on the agenda:

wall color, backsplash tiles + counter tops!

Stay tuned!
