Two recycle bins on the left; space for brooms, mops, etc. on the right. I installed two more shelves above the recyle bins; one for newspapers and the other for more storage.

Colonial Bronze (cbz405 in distressed black) cup pulls from MyKnobs.com around $18ea. The handles are from Ikea, the Sinera line. At $1.98 for two you can't beat the price and I love the satin stipple finish.

Custom Inserts bread box deck with hinged lid and knob.  These are made to fit the exact dimensions of your drawer and are a LOT less expensive than the acrylic custom made bread boxes.

Bench seat still needs cushions. The heating vent is under the center section - that will be MY seat this winter. LOL!

2cm Verde Marinace granite with 1/4 beveled edge (no lamination).  The trim will completely hide the plywood underlayment and give it a finished look.

My one stab at creativity!  To make the switch covers as unobtrusive as possible, I took close-up pictures of the granite and put them inside clear acrylic covers! I purchased the covers on-line (they are used for needlepoint) and bought model paint for the white screws. Ain't I clever! LOL!!

The Gaggia Syncrony does everything but bring it to me in bed expresso maker. I LOVE this machine! Purchased through wholelattelove.com - a great website to research expresso/coffee makers even if you buy from somewhere else. Extensive customer reviews, and lots of detailed information.

White Viking 30 all gas range and 30 Vent-a-Hood professional series. We really agonized over color choice for the appliances - I am very, very happy with the white!

Panasonic Infrared Toaster Oven - thought this would be great for the temporary kitchen. Don't waste your $$.  Doesn't toast any better than a regular toaster oven and it doesn't broil/top brown only - which I didn't realize until after I bought it.

One of my favorite collections. Vintage American Bisque Polka Dot Piggies, the matching tea set was a real find. They are so bright and cheerful, you can't help smiling when you look at them.

Corner display cabinet with McVay art glass collection. This is really beautiful irridescent glass, it just didn't photograph very well. Sorry! Kurt McVay is a local artist, received one piece as a gift and the rest is history.

Gabe's towel hook is under the bar right next to the patio door. Like most boys, he hates to have his drooly mug wiped, so this gives me the advantage. I bought the hook years ago, it is hand made cast iron from the blacksmith at the Western Washington (Puyallup) Fair, and FINALLY found the perfect place for it. :)

Wilsonart Estate Plus laminate flooring in Taupe Fossil.  The flooring is one thing I would probably do differently. We have Pergo Select in our utility room and I really like it, but it has more texture to it. The Wilsonart has a smoother finish and while the pattern hides dirt well, it shows every drip, drop, and damp smear. When you have a dog that drools for a living - this is not a good thing!

It's really hard to get a representative picture of the Verde Marinace, it varies so much from one area to the next. This is part of the countertop on our peninsula. For reference, the rock on the right that looks like a geode is about the size of your closed fist. We liked the Verde Marinace with large inclusions, but it also comes with smaller more uniform sized stones. Enjoy!

Here's a shot of the Verde Marinace tabletop. No worries about wet glasses, hot dishes, or the kid's art projects! Yeah!!

Here's a detail of the underside of the table for those interested in building and topping your own. Th base and chairs were made by Lyndon Furniture Co. and purchased through Vermont Made Furniture.  I'm a little unhappy with them since I needed an extra chair and they upped the agreed upon $125 (ouch!) shipping charge to $175 (totally ridiculous)for a single chair!  So beware of their exorbitant shipping and make sure you get a name and amount. Great price on the table base/chairs compared to what I found locally for the same - just still ticked off about the shipping issue. :)
