Kitchen Redo

Project by Todd Thomas posted 06-11-2015 09:00 AM 17716 views 0 times favorited 8 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Same house as the fireplace with the stone….Small kitchen…not much to work with. We took the original cabinets and refinished them and put new hardware on….Stove/dishwasher….....put a marble backsplash above the stove area…kept the original stainless steel sink/Countertop combo and went to a salvage place and got a 2” acacia, (spelling ? ) countertop to make the rest of the counters and a small table by the frig. finish in natural with 5 coats of Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish wet sanded between coats. Put 1×6 t&g pine on the ceiling to give it a different look.

Looks great Todd! I like the look of the wood with the other elements. I’m working on a waterfront home near Port Ludlow WA. With it’s own beach above a bluff. I stay for 7 days then 2 off. I will post a bunch of pic’s when done.

That is a great counter top. I’ve seen and thought about doing something like that, but never had the guts to try it. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts in a year or two. I’m sure it will hold up, but I’m rather lazy when it comes to maintaining counter tops.
