DONE




As at 6pm last night the kitchen is officially DONE!

Here are the photos.

Interior design guruTricia Guild says every room should have a splash of red. We have a red splashback (so we win on 2 counts!) . It went in last night - a long story as the first one they made was measured incorrectly and broke when they tried to resize it.

For those who need to know things like the colours and specs:

Walls - Resene Tea
Ceiling and woodwork - Resene Quarter Spanish White
Cabinetry - Designatek Fossilite
Benchtop - Askilan (a crushed stone, quartz and resin product) - Bone China
Splashback - Graphic Glass, Resene Pohutukawa
Oven - DeLonghi d906gw
Fridge - Westinghouse wse6070sa
Rangehood -Fisher and Paykel
Drinks Fridge (a drinks fridge!) - Commercial brand

Will it ever look this tidy again?

Hi Mel,

A friend of mine has painted her kitchen/dining with Resene Tea also. Its looks amazing.
They also lightened it for the bedrooms. Awesome multifunctional colour.
Good taste.

Wow it's awesome Mel I'm loving it- maybe I should show my husband and suggest we need a new kitchen just like it - he may decide that if he can finish my scrap room (an ongoing project)I might be happy with just that....LOL
