So, we have a small galley kitchen - some might call it tiny, but I've seen tiny and this one is just small
130" down the length and 105" wide. Started out in very ghastly shape - hobbled together unmatching cabs, peeling vinyl floor tiles & slanting counter top. Also an un-useable coat closet stuck right into the middle of it. I say un-useable because it was not deep enough for a hanger to hang straight.
The window faces north and the sink is on the west wall. I think I've posted these pics, but am going to put them all here to have a complete progress in one spot!

He is standing in front of the spot where we are putting in a little breakfast bar. He made steel brackets - they are now buried behind wallboard, so we'll have that snazzy floating look! (Thanx hun!!) I haven't been able to decide on the bar/counter material. Leaning toward birch to match the cabs - don't want anything cold like stone or steel...... hmmmm
DH usually means Dear Husband (or, pick your own adjective starting with D).
these next pics are photos I took of my ikea layouts. I'm on a Mac and work on the layouts at a friends. By work on, I mean do battle with the kitchen design program! Nononono, i love it, it is a wonderful free resource .......mumble mumble curse curse

Want to put an appliance garage underneath the micro shelf. I read somewhere on here that the maple matches birch Hurray! I have 6 outlets under there with a kill switch on the outside of where the garage will be - I'll never have to unplug & replug again! Will put floures. under lights on the remaining cabs.
OK through the miracle of time-lapse internet....
