There are so many things I love about this kitchen, but my favorites items were handcrafted by my husband: the vent hood, open shelving and island wood top. Of course, I also LOVE the unpolished brass handles (complete splurge), the pot filler, the stainless steel apron sink with pull down faucet, glass dome pendants with brass fittings from mpdesignshop.com .. and many more! I'm working on a product link post to share next.
After two years of starting and stopping, mostly related to time constraints and budget, we are almost done with the kitchen! Remaining in the kitchen is a final wall of cabinets at the north wall and a little detail work. Link to our before pictures.
