When you are so fortunate as to be undertaking a kitchen remodel, you rig up a makeshift kitchen somewhere else. But I still wanted a cosy, welcoming dinner to greet Mister with when he got home.
We're using the little table from the sunporch for meals. Well, it IS in front of a fireplace. Which isn't turned on yet....but the mantel is pretty...
And candles always add a soft glow.
A pretty simple set up, but red is nice and warm to come home to. And it had been a bit of a dreary day.
I hold a firm belief that there really can't be too many candles lit.
I've learned a lot about using an electric skillet. You can make a whole dinner in it and it doesn't have to be a "one dish" meal.
Here's how the kitchen is coming along. The cabinets are installed and the crown molding is going up. Hardware is on.
Close up of the latches. Vintage! .
The appliances arrived today. They are lined up in the center of the room where the island usually is. They are keeping us from bumping our heads on the pendant lights, which is a good thing! Apparently, Some are of the mind that they make a good place for resting....but I digress.
Under the cover.....a new stove! Dual fuel, 2 ovens. I can't wait to try out this baby!
Please join Susan atBetween Naps on the Porch's beautiful blog for Tablescape Thursday today!
And have a most wonderful day!
