Now

Finally kitchen 95% There.

We wanted the kitchen to look like its been here a long time and we just come along and fixed it up a bit, and to have a country feel and look.

We want to tile the floor and the walls over the work tops and over cooker, but that will have to wait on better finances. :)

So for the moment we painted the floor and over the cooker and we’ve wallpaper over the counters.

We are really happy with the result.


For the kitchen we given with many many thanks:).

Just one thing, we only check our internet once or so a week as we don't have internet up the cottage yet.

Wow Tuddlytops, I am stunned--that is a fabulous job. It looks so cosy and I think you have achieved the image you wanted--like it has always been there. You will find the rest of the renovations easier--when you have a clean workable kitchen to return/retreat to between jobs. Keep up the good work but don't over exhaust yourself--this house looks like you are going to be here for a long while--enjoy it too!! Eibhlin.
