Cabin Kitchen Updates















The kitchen is about 90% complete. The laminate top was installed. My rustic custom cabinet doors were also installed. They have dark bronze knobs and hinges. The builder miscalculated on the size of 3 bottom cupboards so that will be finished up next week. I asked about making the cabinets a little darker but was told they should darken and get more golden over time. So I'll wait and see how much patience I have....
The next items are the dining table and all the kitchen appliances. As you can see, the only appliance I have right now is the microwave. Money is going out the door fast! (I write this with a smile - it's still worth it!)

Shelley, I forgot to mention that I worked in custom cabinetry and kitchen design for 9 years....I know kitchens. Can't wait to see the bar stools you pick out :) :)

Just Beautiful! As the wood ages, it will add a nice contrast and not blend in as much. I can hardly wait for each update!! Lovely!

You commented on my blog post on the history of log cabins and I followed the link to your blog. Your cabin is beautiful and I know that area of Northern Michigan very well. It is probably one of my favorite places because of the peace and serenity. My future husband and I share the same dream as your husband...to have a cabin in the woods some day. Very cool to say the least!

Hi Sandy,
What kind of bar stools would you recommend?? I was thinking of a darker wood. Thank you! :-)

You will have so many wonderful hours in your rustic kitchen. I can smell big pots of soup simmering as everyone tramps in after a brisk walk. Everything looks lovely.

Thank you Violet Lady! I'm already on the hunt for some good recipes to cook up in the log cabin!
