(the misadventures of an expatriate corporate dropout)

sorry I've been down sick with some sort of flu ... kind of drained me of inspiration. JY is sick too, but nonetheless, we've been making progress on finishing the kitchen.
The sink is installed, JY built the cupboard to house the old sink and made zinc counters. there are shelves below and he will be making the cupboard doors soon. They will match the old doors he found for the built-in next to the fireplace.
The doors were slightly too long so he modified them. and I washed and sanded them. They are a darker grey than the walls and integrate beautifully into the room.
He also built a freestanding island out of oak, it has wheels and some shelves to house pots, plates, utensils, etc. I will be on the look out for some stools or high chairs to cluster near it.
I think the kitchen will be finished by the end of next week! hoo-RAH! (I know the pics and spacing are all cock-a-mamie, but what can I say ... I'm SICK! my head hurts and I've redone this enough times that I give up ... hopefully I'll be able to post something a bit more meaningful next go around ... ) ciaoxx
