Finishin’ the Kitchen 


My kitchen, as of January 2016

The original bottom cupboards have been kept and repainted, everything else is newly installed and either Ikea or DIY built.

It’s first and foremost a working kitchen, so I chose an easy to clean electric cooker, cupboards that you can easily see into, oak worktop that could take a beating and an implements rack to have everything close to hand.

(Try to ignore the bottle of white spirits on the window ledge, it’s practically a permanent fixture now)

Here’s the sorry state of my tool cupboard. This is something I don’t expect to change much for the next forever.


And one last quick comparison side by side. Such a difference!
