So my To Do list is looking a little neglected as I have battled Council and a head cold, and seem to be winning both, (well winning a little :)
Buuut I ordered our kitchen today.
So an Artisan Carpenter from our local area is making the kitchen.
One will host our dreamy, magical, double farmhouse sink.
Then next to it will live my much longed for 900mm Gas oven (not purchased yet).
Then happily directly across will live our nearly 3 metre kitchen island. Enough island space to cook with my children, chat, have a wine with friends or a casual dinner.
Then when I spoke to the gentleman carpenter today and expressed my concern over the wasted timber that will need to be cut out for the sink, he said 'would you like to use it for a great chopping board or pot holder for the table', I answered hurriedly ' um yes please!' Perfect.
I think I may paint the legs and shelves white for balance against all the rustic timber.
I have also scored an old meat safe (in need of a bit of paint love) as we have space on the wall meeting the playroom for the fridge and some cupboards (a little reminiscent of the image above, well I hope it will be).
p.s. I would assume budget savings on the kitchen might buy me a certain kitchenaid I have had my eye on, wouldn't you agree?? I mean it would offer a nice design touch.....
