Incidentally, the house is 110 years old; late-Victorian in style, with never-painted gumwood in most of the rooms. The cherry we chose looks amazingly like it truly belongs in the house. And -- in the demolition process, we were amazed to find absolutely beautiful matchstick wainscotting that had been hidden probably for 40 years behind ugly particle board paneling. We had always been afraid to remove the paneling for fear on problems that might lie beneath. The wainscotting had a medium dark stain on it, but we painted it to match the rest of the woodwork so it would not fight with the cherry cabinets.

Previously, there was a window above the sink, but we redesigned it with the half circle at the top and we are amazed at how much more light it provides.
