We're Building A House: Kitchen Almost Complete


Last week I finally found some bar stools for our kitchen, they were on sale for $39.95 EACH, so I swiftly napped 4 of them. I had been looking and looking for ages to find decent bar stools, and these just popped up on my facebook newsfeed, that was handy! I absolutely love them, they are the Hudson Stool from Mocka

The last thing to go up in the kitchen is our pendant lights, two Muuto unfold lights from Scandanavian Design Center. But, my brother the sparky is a little occupied with his new bub, so I thought it best not to pester him!!

Anyway, I love the way it turned out, the simple things like the plain white subway tiles look so good with the charcoal grout, and because I just love everything grey, and  I'm so happy with the way the cabinets look, they are new graphite colour by Laminex. Our fridge doesn't quite fit properly in this spot, its too skinny and the door opens the wrong way making it really awkward, but it just has to do for now!

We put the shelves up, they are an oak look laminate, the brand is Big Boy I think! We got them from a Temple and Webster sale. I think the shelves fill in that wall and make it feel less stark and more homey! Now just to figure out what to put on those shelves!

The kitchen is where most of my effort has gone, its nice now that its almost complete that I can start dreaming about other rooms! But, the kitchen is our hub, the heart of the house, so its nice that it feels finished!

These picture are not so great, just taken with my phone, because I feel too lazy to pull out the DSLR, but you get the idea!
