I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far, this is another post about the kitchen, this section (I wish that I had a before picture but I don’t have any and I apologize) used to be a desk area. It was basically a piece of countertop with nothing underneath, so a chair could fit there.
When we decided to make my office downstairs as you have seen, there was no point to this being a desk anymore. We never used it, so John came up with this idea and he decided to build me cabinet doors and a shelf (from scratch) inside. This gave me more storage for some supplies I have for cooking and baking and what girl wouldn’t love more storage? I took him up on the idea and I think he did a great job.
The top cabinets which you can tell by the photo we took of the inside of the door, used to be light like the other cabinets so I decided to make these match the island to make it look more like a hutch effect. I painted them the same color as the island and decided to stencil the doors to match the island and then I gave them a quick light wash of raw umber glaze.

I also did the backsplash to match the bar area so they would look the same.
