My kitchen renovation is complete. The walls are the ceiling are now as straight and even as they can be. There are many little moments that could be adjusted - there are no curtains, kitchen island, door handles, and a few other things. However, this kitchen is quite ready to cook and live in.
In the process of renovation, our contractor found a secret window. He started making an opening for a range hood. When we returned home that day, he asked us a simple but shocking question - "Did you know that you have another window?" Since, having lived in this house for seven months, nobody noticed this window, it's going to go down in our family's history under the title of The House Full Of Unexpected Finds. Since it was exactly the type of window I've always dreamed of - a window above the sink - you could say that it was an excellent gift.
How could we pass this opportunity by? We decided to enlarge the window - which also increased the duration of the renovation. It added some new concerns as well - buying the window frame, returning the shelves we bought to the store, and searching for a light to put above the window and sink.
On this photo (which looks like a fairly complete kitchen, and where you can already see my dog sculptures being baked in the oven) is lacking a very important element - the backsplash. We were just in the process of looking for it. One of the version we had bought had to be returned because, having tried it out, we realized that we knew nothing about backsplashes.
On this photo, you will see the backsplash that was ideally placed by our contractor, and which matches the spirit of the house of the artist. I personally consider this backsplash a little masterpiece of glass.
I want to say thank you once again to everyone who send me messages at a time when I ran around hardware stores all day long. Please give me a couple of days to clean up everything. After that, I will catch up with your amazing blogs. Cheers!
