The Big Kitchen Reveal



I hope you enjoy my kitchen!  Its the first kitchen I've ever made, so I'm still learning and refining, but I think it looks pretty good.

First, I think I deleted the one good overview shot I took.  Deep breath. Pause.  So, you get to see the sectional shots.  Second, one of my canisters is upside down.  Realized that the day after.  I was tempted to set it all up again, but I thought, no, control your OCD and move along.

All in, the kitchen took 1.5 months of evening work, anywhere from 8pm to midnight.  I am pleased with the results.  Did a little happy dance when it was all finished. But, then I took everything removable out, so it is once again a cute but empty shell, ready for toddler hands and pint sized dolls.

I used both my Canon Rebel T4 and my BlackBerry Classic to take the photos.  Cellphones are awesome for getting into tight places.

The accessories and the appliances will be all broken down and explained in subsequent posts.  I didn't want to bore you to death in one shot.  I prefer it slow and painful for you!

  1. Hi Kat! Your little kitchen is Simply Lovely!!!! :D I love the color mix of gray, white, and yellow with just a touch of copper and black for accent. You have managed to utilize every inch of space and make it all usable too! The breakfast bar and the seating area next to the door are both Really Terrific space saving solutions. Your granite counter tops and back splash really make clean up easy and allows the wonderful assortment of Kitchen accessories to shine. The mix of heights, finishes and textures in the way that you have dressed the counter tops and the top of the fridge is tastefully done as well as authentic. Mini people could really enjoy living and working in your stylish little kitchen, and it appears as if they already do! :D

  4. That was wonderfully done, Kitty! What I love most is your "breakfast area and shelf". The idea of creating that kind of space is worth a shot. And given your knack for putting things together, it’s no surprise that this turned out nicely. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Fred! It's my favourite part of the kitchen now. I loooove to waste time on making the fussy little bits for the kitchen.
