One Room Challenge {Guest}: Carriage House Kitchen - Week 2

Week 2 already!  For those of you new to HGL, I'm participating in the One Room Challenge and recreating the kitchen of my historic carriage house in Newport, Rhode Island. If you've been following HGL on Instagram (@seasaltinterieurs) you'll know we're making progress!

Here's the plan:

carriage house kitchen idea board

Quick reminder of how everything looked when I purchased the carriage house in August,

and progress to date:

initial demo of kitchen, including built-ins/soffit to left, wrought iron railing/beadboard above

demo of back wall, weird beam revealed under ugly boxing

fussy beadboard fronts gone, beam replaced with steel brackets, new plywood base ready for tile

borrowed existing, too-skinny cabinet for new cocktail zone; building wider cabinet to replace

new twin pantries will surround new counter-depth fridge

new wider cabinet installed just right of the range, electrical work for under-mount lighting complete

new brackets installed and, together with cabinets, ready for matte lacquer (6-layer process!)

Fingers crossed marble and tile will be installed next week.  Big question remaining - will the new lacquered cabinet fronts be completed as well?

Stay tuned.
