Cupboardy

If you're a watcher of Little Britain, you'll understand the title of this post. If not, it's a long story.

Here is the before picture of (one side) of our kitchen. It's okay ... it's functional ... plenty of bench space ... just not a lot of storage space.

I've showed the kitchen before, you've seen me painting it, and putting up the timber blinds. Now you can see the hole in the ceiling where we've taken out the extractor fan in readiness for the ducting for the range hood.

But enough of before ...

Here is the after picture! Got cupboards!

Only a few more bits and pieces to do. We just need to repair the ceiling where the hole was, and fit the little hidey-box around the flue for the range hood, and we're all done. The last thing for me to do will be fill the cupboards with stuff!

Super fun! The kitchen is all cupboardy!

It's beautiful, the cabinets look so pretty against the color on the wall. I'm sure you can't wait to fill the cupboards!

Those glass-fronted cupboards look so classy. Very nice, clean looking kitchen.

I am sure you are so thrilled with your new look and won't those cabinets come in handy? Terrific job on placing 2nd, though I thought it should get a 1st, but hey...a ribbon is a ribbon after all-so glad you had such a super day.

your kitchen cupboards are just great Tazzie. We had our kitchen re-done about 5 years ago and it was so exciting being able to fill the cupboards.

Hey kiddo - I love the cabinets. Those glass doors are beautiful. I had glass doors in a kitchen once. It forces you to keep the cabinets neat.

Lovely cupboards. It is such a luxury to have lots of cupboard space. Your kitchen looks so light and airy with the white cupboards and glass doors. May it always be as tidy as it is now! (Easier said than done, I know, even with all that space.)

Looking good! I hope you enjoy it for many years. Such good light, nice and bright.

The new cupboards are very pretty. Looks much better!! Very cupboardy. We occasionally get Little Britian in Canada -- quite a fun show to watch.

Great new storage space with those cupboards! My DH is in charge of getting me a new Ikea kitchen while I am in the US! Hopefully it will be all done by the time I arrive to Austria!

Cheers!

Ohh, very nice! I love all the glass and arched stuff you have going there, and the wall color is excellent too. :)

But... I do think you need some little quilted cushions on your two stools at your bar there! *girns*

Susan said...

That looks fabulous! I can't believe the difference in the feeling of warm kitchen now.

Jenni @ Fairybread said...

A great match Tazzie. Looks like they have always been there. What fun to fill them up.

Sandra said...

Nothing like a beautiful cupboardy kitchen! It's lovely and I'm totally jealous. We have to pull out the bathroom before we do the kitchen :-(

Patti said...

Oh Tazzie - it is SO beautiful! Love the glass fronts and arched tops on the cabinet doors. You will have so much fund putting everything away in these wonderful new cabinets!

Dawn said...

Oh your "new" kitchen looks great! Wonderful cupboards!

Kathie said...

I'm a little late here but had to pop in to say that your kitchen looks great! Very cool and calming color. Aren't you pleased? I bet you are.
