The problem that I'm really having is I would so like my ideal kitchen. Unfortunately, it's somewhere in a ritzy apartment in Manhattan, not in a 2 bedroom 1960s ranch in Waco, Texas.

I know the feeling - in my dream loft, the place revolves around the kitchen.  For now I'm just glad to have one of my own.  Less cabinet space than yours, but more counter space.  I can live with it.

Good luck with the cabinets. Smiley

I would KILL for more counter space. More cabinet space too, for that matter. But particularly more counters. I look at these kitchens on design websites and they are HUGE. And I think about my little galley kitchen and that it AND the utility room measure 180 square feet. I mean, I can dream, but the only way I'm gonna get a bigger kitchen is to a) move or b) tear down a wall and make the den smaller.

Thanks. The smell of oil-based paint is going to be the main smell around here for months (painting those horrible paneled walls in the den/kitchen, too). Just cleaning them will be a bitch. But it will be worth it.

OK. This is the glass mosaic tile that's going up behind the cooktop. Actually, it's already up, but it won't be grouted until tomorrow...which is when I'll post a pic of the completed wall. The electrical outlet will be covered with a decorative plate that will match the other three on the other backsplash (not sure yet what it will be, but I"m leaning to antique copper since the light fixtures are copper).

The tile was a Home Depot purchase and was 4.99/square foot.

Well, it is a large den. Wink  Maybe you could sacrifice three or four feet.  With that, the oven could move right and swing 90 degrees clockwise to rest near the door to the dining area, giving you a great big expanse of counter space.  Just something to consider.

I like the mosaic. Smiley

That's a possibility. I also thought about knocking down that den wall and using the current counter space as an island and then have counters/cabinets in the new space. That would just about double the size and wouldn't require changing the plumbing or the gas lines.

Course, all this is for when I win the lottery.  Tongue

It looks really good up. Can't wait until it's grouted. Now I REALLY want to paint those cabinets. LOL

So here's the tile installed.

The before picture here is one of the first ones I posted for this side of the kitchen before anything was done. The two following pictures are of the tile installed with the new counters in.

Thank you. Smiley

I am really, really happy with the way this is going.

My only real bitch is with the sink. I got it through Amazon Warehouse Deals, and it was described as "open box." Right. Opened and then jumped on by a gorilla. It was horribly warped, but we didn't know that until it was set into place. Just pulling it out of the box and looking at it didn't show that at all. Made it a pain in the butt to install (well, more of a pain in the butt). My cautionary tale here is buyer beware if it's coming from AWD...you may not get what you expect.

I bet you smile every time you walk into that space now.  Smiley

And I like the island idea.  I have a lottery ticket around here somewhere...

Nice job! (I love glass mosaic tiles.) I know you're waiting on painting the cupboards, but what are you planning?

Two colors, actually. The bottom cabinets are a dark red (Benjamin Moore matched a Behr color I liked called Velvety Merlot), and the top cabinets will be a beige that has a pinkish tint so they'll go with the cabinets (they're a neutral, though, not pink *g*)...Spiced Beige is the color.
