Before + Progress Pictures: The Historic House By The Water: Kitchen, Part 12

A couple of weeks ago, when I was explaining how our Thomasville cabinetry order was moving as quickly as national healthcare reform, I mentioned that I was considering a last ditch effort to make do with this door.

It's the only interior one that's not original to our 1928 home.



Anyway, yesterday I found a crusty can of paint in the garage and decided it was fate. And free.

And I promised myself if it was terrible I'd throw it out.

But I think the charcoal is good, no?

I love the result of your hard work and admire your creative skills. In my case, my husbad and I found some out sinks in the garage and we decided to call a plumber (Minnesota-based) to help us in installing it in our kitchen. On our old house, we also had a unused bathtub, which was kindly installed by a plumber (Minneapolis-based) friend of my husband.
