This has been a busy and exhausting summer for my family. But I’m happy to report that our cottage exterior is being stained as I write this, thankfully by someone else . In my mind, at least, this means we are turning the corner on all the work that has to be done at the cottage. I hope I’m right.
We had a cabinet painter in to give us an estimate on painting the kitchen cupboards recently and it makes me excited to start thinking about what I want to do in the kitchen.
This is my inspiration photo.
For the countertops I am actually thinking of reversing the order that is shown here and doing a wood countertop for the main counter and a quartz marble look alike for the island. I had wood countertops in my previous cottage and really loved them.
However, when I looked at the details of this kitchen and the paint colours (there are actually two different ones) used, they are much more gray and dark than what I want, though in this picture they don’t look that dark.
So I’m thinking of this colour for the cabinetry, which I think pretty closely matches the colour in the photo above (and I just realized it really matches the colours on my website..I guess I’m a blue girl).

But first things first, I have to finalize all the changes to the cabinetry, obviously before I can get them painted so I’m in full scale design planning mode now. I also have to try and source some twenty year old tile for repairs in one of the bathrooms and the sun room. Fun, fun fun.
Fall can’t come soon enough for me. How’s your summer been? Exhausting or exhilierating?
