The cabinet guy came to my house for the first of what I’m guessing will be a couple of meetings. Brad met with him to get the cabinet stuff started. At this time, I would like to tell you that I have been driving a cabinet catalog around in my car for no less than three months. I chose my style three months ago. I am ahead of them… so ahead of them on this one. I even drew a floor plan, which is likely going to become irrelevant because three months ago is not the same thing as today. Profound. I know. I’m blowing my own mind this morning.

So, like I said, I’m thinking about cabinets. I should think about other things, I’m sure. Counter tops will be concrete, cabinets white, wood floors, open shelving, some cabinets with glass doors, and then regular cabinets, too. The island will be 3×8. I was thinking of using some industrial/factory table legs. Not sure I’m still thinking that—more on that later.

These kitchens are from House Beautiful.

I’m wild about the fact that there’s a farm sink in the island.So clever. So very clever.


I don’t know so much about mirrored cabinets doors….

This is not very Amy but I saw it and thought… Huh. The oven is in the island in a way I never thought of….


I did not intend to post white kitchens—such strong inclinations I have.

Now, if you have any kitchen cabinet advice I’d love to hear it. I mean, what’s the one thing you wish you’d done differently about your cabinets? Seriously. What would you do if you were me?



While I’m in the kitchen, I should mention one of my very dearest and best friends, Julie. Very dearest means so much more than dearest, just so you know. Everything she posts on this blog is trustworthy. You’ll enjoy it.
