Danni_in_PDX 's Finished Kitchen

Posted by: Danni_in_PDX (My Page) on Tue, Aug 3, 04 at 2:35

Kitchen was part of a bigger addition to the house. It also included a mudroom, laundry, dining room, powder, huge bonus and back stairwell, as well as a deck.
General Contractor was Kier Miller out of Lake Oswego. **Wonderful**
Kitchen: Vaulted, about 18 x 20 new construction (addition) on a 1992 spec house, box Colonial. Painted Coranado Gold (RL) to match the rest of the open space in the house.
Windows: Basic Milgard Windows, nothing fancy.
Roman Shade: CUSTOM, at great personal sacrifice!! Kidding, fabric is Le Coq from Calico Corners and has Italian script on it. It is also available in a gold background, but the black worked better for me.
Pulldown shade is from Hunter Douglas, through HD and works like a pair of sunglasses, you can see right through it. I am crazy about the look and will be ordering them for the rest of the house when the budget allows.
Cabinets: Custom, M n'M Cabinet Company, inset Shaker style, no bead, in Villa White Oil Paint. Painted onsite. Island, painted in RL Ebony, also in oil.
Floors: Red Oak
Light Fixtures: Chandelier/Murray Feiss Devonshire in Pewter
Alzac trim on all can light, (amazing) and American Lighting undercab lighting (it gets warm though)
All on dimmers and I have plugmold!
Counters: Island: St. Cecilia slab, Perimeter, Black Galaxy granite 26" x 18" x 1/2" tiles, Bake Center counter, Calcutta Oro slab
Backsplash is pearl white 3" x 6" subway tile from Pratt & Larson in Portland. It is handmade and gorgeous and it all came from the seconds warehouse.
Primary Sink: Rohl Farmsink with Rohl Faucet
Secondary Sink: Bakerfield Tile-In Sink by Kohler with recycled Price Phister Marielle, both in nickel
Hardware from - LOVE IT, and under $2 each (!)
Appliances: Amana counter depth frig with cabinet panels
Dacor Preference white double ovens
KA Integrated Dishwasher with cabinet front
KA Smoothtop with five burners and the abilty to can on it (preserves, jam etc)
Dacor downdraft that telescopes up and down
GE teeny microwave to do popcorn!
EWave beverage frig for undercounter
Goodness, it took me two minutes to type the choices that took me five months to make! nutty!!!

Love the saw cut detail under the sink (the horizontal ones specifically). Do those go all the way through the wood or are they just superficial, part way? If superficial, why do they look so dark (especially compared to the vertical details flanking your apron sink)? Is there some dark paint in there?

We'd like to replicate that look and I want to know what to tell the cabinet maker.

Thanks! And beautiful kitchen!
(Oh, and are you happy with that faucet you chose?)
