One of my recent customers has decided to reinvent her kitchen to a southwestern style and wanted to include one of my Southwestern style cabinet inserts. She had chosen her color scheme of chili pepper red, blue and green. She had already purchased some televera handles for the cupboard doors. The handles were framed in blue which would add spots of color through out the kitchen. After looking through our stained glass designs she chose a wonderful style from our stained glass panel section that would really make the whole kitchen pop. I had to add elements of design to accommodate the length she needed. Additionally she chose some light fixtures that were also glass. I matched the glass to these.
Although I envy the idea of a new kitchen I can also empathize with the strains and struggles of trying to get things done on time. Has anyone ever gotten any kind of construction work done on time? That is just a fallacy is it not? She waited as we all do. The kitchen was gutted and she was working with a crock pot and microwave in the sunroom. Kind of a hassle, but I think it is worth it for a brand new kitchen.
The tile floors go in one week and the cabinets the following week. After a few minor setbacks, everything is moving forward (appliances and lights installed). The backsplash tile came in the wrong color, so the contractor had to get the right tile shipped overnight. Whew. Glad it wasn’t me.
I fabricated the window and shipped it. The client was very pleased. Below is an excerpt from her Email to me:
Here is her finished kitchen! Gorgeous!
