    In the "Bansky Makes Fruit Jerky Thread" Bansky's great looking kitchen was discussed and the thread took a minor drift to kitchen remodel discussions. Dainty Jainty replied to a post of mine requesting pics/description of my modest kitchen project so here ya' go......

    Here is what we started with....

    [​IMG]

    We then picked out a nice slab of granite for the countertops. Something a bit different that contrasts nicely with all of the earth tones in our home. A double bowl stainless sink and stainless faucet/soap dispenser were also added. I then found some cabinets that with some tweaking matched the existing ones and added a peninsula to give us some work space and a bit more storage. Plus it defines the kitchen space a bit better. Small but enough room for just Mrs. Lemmy and myself......

    Rounding off the stainless appliances was an over the range microwave. I also installed several more outlets and a gray tone glass tile backsplash. Very happy with everything.....

    I'm a big fan of the simple Keurig, the Cuisinart convection toaster oven and Wüsthof knives.....

    During the kitchen fiasco the laminate flooring was also removed and I installed hardwood in the kitchen (and throughout the whole house).......

    So post your kitchen updates and/or gadgets to give some ideas to those contemplating such projects!

    BTW.....sorry the pic quality isn't stellar. My digital camera is a bit lacking so I just used my cellphone. Not bad but could be better.

    It may come as a surprise to you, but a decorative spice rack conveniently situated above the stove is not doing your spices any favors. Sure the row of little glass jars are pretty to look at and the rack itself may be a space saver, but with all the heat, steam, gas and fallout from your cooking, your spices are no better off than the Icelandic cattle living in the path of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano spew.
