Since my last post about the house we have made some serious progress. Today the appliances were going in, the lighting is almost all done and the flooring on the lower level is 90% done. The plumbers were there today as well doing their thing. One more month! More images after the jump.

Snagged a killer deal on these two cow hide rugs. One for under the Burke table and one for my den.

Found this great lucite lamp on eBay for a song but I can’t find any info on the maker. Anyone have any ideas?

    Who did you use for the Burke table stripping and powdercoating? Gorgeous job. I’m fearful you’re going to say you did it yourself in which case I throw my hands up in shock/awe.

  • Tyler

    John, At my place of work we powder coat and blast, so in a way , yes I did it myself. I do have to thank my good friend Ken, thanks Ken!

    I have the Chroma quartz white pearl countertops in my small kitchen. Any ideas on what kind and color cabinets and backsplash I can put in to make for a beach cottage look? Floor is a medium color oak 4.5″ plank. Thanks!

  • Tyler

    NIm, I would go with a gray or white cabinet. Second choice may be a wood cabinet but go lighter or darker than your floors. With wood cabinets you would have a lot of wood grain going. Mine are from Huntwood, they are a gray washed maple, so you barley get some wood grain showing through

  • NIm

    Thanks, Tyler………I am pretty sure I will go with white, creamy, cabinets, not stark white, but not yellowey either, just a soft white. I want to put two or three open shelves in and the backsplash I am still not sure of. I do like the white subway beveled tile with wider 1/4″ grout,….looks kind of like brick, and it pops out because it is beveled………BUT, I do NOT want a contemporary look……I like a vintage beach cottage touch, so the backsplash and cabinets are key here. Actually, the cabinets I have now are handmade pine flat, slap doors that are stained a chestnut color and polyed. I am probably going to paint these the white and maybe add a very simple trim of some kind. Or do that glazing and rub them to show the wood underneath.

  • NIm

    What kind of backsplash did you decide on with your Chroma White Pearl countertops?

  • Tyler

    NIm, I went with a rectangle white subway tile in a non brick format, running stacked.
