Thank You

Thank you, Whisperwood and
Cottage and Bungalow Magazine.
I'm ecstatic to be one of fourteen finalists for Cottage and Bungalow magazine's first project of the year at Whisperwood Cottage.  

The entry choices and fourteen finalists were amazing!  I didn't win, but
congratulations to all and the six winners.

I entered the kitchen cabinets we fabricated from IKEA islands and the shelves we built.  That side of the kitchen is complete now, as well as the kitchen.  All the baskets are from Pottery Barn, and I use the one on top of the SMEG for linens.

We did all the design and work ourselves on this side of the kitchen even the bead-board planks and refinishing the cement floor.

This side I finished after the contest.  I did all the design, but I had someone install the cabinets and granite.  My spouse installed the sink with the granite guy, including hitting the edges with a hammer (scary, no damage, but it worked) and he hooked up the faucet.

Show and Tell Friday
