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!
North wall....

Here is my dh looking jolly, somewhere before wallboard but after gutting. It really has all started to blur together!

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

West wall - for some reason, I couldn't get it to print out the little perfekt 9" wine cab that goes next to the glass cab...m.m.c.c.

I plan on hanging little pendant lights from the 2 higher cabs - the glass one will have flourescent undercab lighting - plus interior lights

east wall -
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.
