New Kitchen Post #2...the "Right Side"...

O.k. friends, today I thought I'd show you the "right" side of the kitchen.  There are a couple of things I love about this side of the kitchen - my farmhouse sink and my open shelves.  I'm also glad I decided to take the cabinets all the way to the ceiling.  Our ceilings are 9 ft. so I must admit - the far upper cabinets are not that practical - but they are great for storing seasonal dishes and such.
 In this pictures you'll see the pantry door - oh my goodness - probably the room I've spent the most time in since we moved in a month ago - the pantry.  I love having all my "non-pretties" in there and the best part - it is so easy to find everything.  When I get it all organized one day - I'll show it to ya ;-)
 In each corner of the kitchen - I decided on two cabinets that kind of resemble a kitchen hutch.  Great for displaying my white pitchers and other finds.  I also love the two drawers under them -  I'm sorry - you can't see here - but they are perfect for foils, wraps and such.  You will also notice - the glass is not in the corner units yet either - jus' another lil' thing that still needs doing.
My open shelves - hubby says "just another place to sit things" - well, he is right.  Fortunately, I did not need the cabinet space and I love the airy feeling it gives this side of the kitchen.
Lastly, the one thing I said was a must when we built this house and I truly only asked for this one thing - a farmhouse sink.  I found many online in the 1,000+ dollar range and I thought about just breaking down and getting one.  But I have a great friend, Julie, who let me tag along on a very loooooooong drive to IKEA and we found this one for just $299 - which sounded great - no fun to load - but the price was right! Thanks Julie!

You will also see we opted for a traditional shaker style cabinet front - we are really happy with the simplicity of it!
Well, that's it - the right side of the kitchen.  I'll share what's happening on the left a lil' later!

Have a happy day!

I love your kitchen so far! I want to do this someday with my modern cherry finish cabinets. I have high ceilings too. You're right not too practical on the space. I love the red with the white backdrop!

Hi Cathy, your kitchen is beautiful. I am getting ready to paint mine, can you tell me what color/brand you used.
Thank you.

Joanie K - this message is for you - I hope you can see it since your e-mail is not enabled. But you ask me what color and brand my paint was in my kitchen - well, my friend, it is called rainwashed and it is from Sherman Williams. Good luck with your project!
