Here are a few more kitchen pictures. This was before we tiled our floor. The first picture is our hutch area. He will be building glass doors with chicken wire to complete the hutch. In the second picture, is our pantry. This is truly my pride and joy of the kitchen because it is complete with swinging shelves. This allows so much storage for our food. In the last picture he put in our garbage cabinet. It holds two garbage cans that pull out. As you can see the drawers are not all completed. These cabinets are mission style cabinets, and if you look at the pictures closely, you can see that each corner of the cabinet has dark wooden pegs. Michael made these for looks only, but in the old days they would have been used to secure the cabinets together. The cabinets are oak wood with the pegs being made out of walnut. The walnut came from a dear lady that was like a grandmother to me. I played under her walnut tree while growing up. After she died, the tree was cut down, and my dad asked if he could have the tree. He brought it to us in Tenn., and Michael had it dried and cut into boards. We still have a lot of it left, and after the kitchen is done I can see a coffee table and end tables in our future!
grace and peace,
