I finally got around to cleaning after the kitchen remodel, so I could take some after pictures. It still isn’t quite finished. Someday I might get around to some window treatments and another someday new appliances.
Here is it looked like before.
See the space between the cabinet and patio door? There was room there for a lovely garbage can if a person wanted to put one there. I did not, so I removed the existing upper cabinet and built 2 new upper cabinets and an additional base cabinet. Then I made one of the existing base cabinets a slide out garbage cabinet. I built the uppers 14″ deep to fit larger items like chargers or serving dishes that don’t always fit in a standard 12″ cabinet.
The cabinets were nice (raised panel-classic design), just ugly so all I had to do there was paint. I applied beadboard and corbels to the island to give it more substance and painted the walls and molding.
