  1. We installed a Fulford Milano stove/oven a couple of years ago. We love it. Your kitchen is lovely!

  2. Oh silly auto correct. FULGOR stove.

  3. We remodeled our kitchen years ago….pickled oak that turned pinkish as it aged. Out kitchen guy told me the same thing….white kitchens would be dated. Why did I listen when I REALLY wanted a white kitchen. A couple of years ago we had them painted. They were in such good shape replacing would have been a waste. What an improvement it was!

    How fun to have your kitchen ready for the holidays! Hope it was done before Hanukkah started! It looks lovely! And you STILL didn’t show the sink ‘before’ picture, haha! We moved in January and hoped to update our kitchen right away, but with the lockdown we have postponed the project. The brown granite on top of original cabinets from 1973 are in serious need of an update! We’ve had plenty of time for planning and hope to start just after the first of the year.

    1. Thank you and yes, it was done, but no entertaining this year… πŸ˜‰ And that’s very funny but you’re right! I’m not sure I even have a full-on before pic. I’ll have to take a look and see.

      Good luck with your project! It’s such a great feeling to get the work done… πŸ™‚

    Lovely kitchen, Lory. All good things come to those who wait…

    Our new appliances are in the basement. We’re waiting…

    Handle for “temporary” oven broke in two and now sporting packing tape. Very classy.
    My daughter mentioned that “packing tape comes in an array of colors, Mom.” Good to know.

    1. Ha! When I was growing up we always laughed about the fact that my dad fixed everything with pink tape! At least it was pink… πŸ˜‰ Good luck with your project!

  6. Beautiful Lory! I’m so glad you have what you wanted – it’s certainly lovely! Thanks for the nudge on the sink and faucet too – we need to upgrade desperately, and now I’m inspired! πŸ™‚ Hope you’re having a lovely holiday season!

    1. Thank you, Barbara! Isn’t it funny how easy it is to look past things we don’t like? Hope you enjoy your holidays too!!

  7. It’s SO pretty! I love the quartz countertop. I was also happy to see a non-Christmas related post!

    1. Thank you and it’s so funny you said that, because I actually asked several blogger friends if they thought it was ok if I posted something that wasn’t Christmas themed this week! Looks like their advice was on point… πŸ˜‰

    I’m so happy for you! I know you’ve one of those other black granite countertops replaced for quite a long time now. They are gorgeous! I redid my kitchen 22 years ago and I did it all white. Everyone thinks it’s a new kitchen but I just had foresight?

    1. Well done, Ginger!! Yep, I shouldn’t have listened to the pros (although we no longer live there now anyway… ;-)). Thanks for your sweet words!

    Lory, your kitchen is so beautiful — everything! I especially love your faucet and all your pretty accessories! Glad that you finally have what you dreamed of! Enjoy!

    It is fabulous. I am so happy for you.

    Sure wish I could update our kitchen. Don’t see it happening anytime soon, though.

    I am sincerely and happily quite jealous of your kitchen. In a good way, hope you know. β™₯

    1. Thank you! And I know what you mean because I’ve felt that way many times in the past… πŸ™‚ It’s what drives us forward when the opportunity arises.

  11. I moved into an apartment about a year ago and the one I chose has a white kitchen. So very happy and have added lots of copper pots and pans for a French country look. Of course, I HAD to attend a few estate sales to add to my collection!! I captured some real treasures. I enjoyed reading about your journey to the joy of your white kitchen. I’m excited for you!

  12. I adore this kitchen. What is the black thing on the wall in the 2nd to the last pic? I can’t make it out. A jukebox?

    Lory,

    Gorgeous! It’s funny because after hearing you talk about your desire for white countertops, whenever I saw your kitchen in pics, I always saw it the way you wanted it and now it’s reality!

    I love my white farmhouse sink, but wish I had purchased the sink grate for protection. I’m regretting I didn’t now. Just a thought.

    Enjoy your lovely kitchen!

    Blessings,
    Teresa

    1. Thanks, Teresa!! I’m really so happy with the room now… πŸ™‚ My sink did not come with the grate option. Hoping it’s ok.
