My photographs have somehow come out back to front so to see what the kitchen cabinets looked like before you will have to scroll down to the last pic. Sorry!! It's not a huge kitchen - a thin long, galley kitchen but it has some charm and now the makeover has happened I LOVE it.
The pic above shows the difference between the wall and the cabinets... very subtle but pleasing.
Pic below shows the butlers sink - porcelain - this was in the original kitchen and although a bit worn and scratched I would not change it - love it so much. Oh and the wooden work surfaces too - they are great.
So there we are - my kitchen in England in our little cottage. Miss it very much... Oh and one more change were the stripey rugs I found at a bargain price on sale in our local carpet place.
