Need ideas/advice to finish kitchen at summer cottage
Looking for ideas to complete last summer's reno. Here's what was done... retained original colour scheme - yellow walls, cornflower blue accents. Replaced almond euro style cabinet doors/drawer fronts with white doors , new hardware and crown moulding. Added new row of cupboards above fridge and stove. Replaced kitchen vinyl and LR carpet (one area) with 'savannah oak' laminate floor throughout. My fridge was relatively new, so I opted to stay with white appliances (new stove and dishwasher). Laminate counter top is grey/taupe with flecks of blue, yellow, orange, beige.
I'm seeking inexpensive ideas / suggestions for:
1) backsplash... 2) renewing table/seating area - I've been considering getting rid of my vintage oak pedestal table (which I cover with table cloth) and going with an island with storage and seating - there's not alot of space. I've been considering getting rid of my vintage oak pedestal table (which I cover with table cloth) and going with an island with storage and seating. Alternatively, it has been suggested to keep the table, refinish /paint in a funky colour/ finish (chalk paint?) to tie in with everything. Maybe new chairs? On the wall opposite fridge and stove I have a vintage buffet/cabinet. (pictures on wall aren't centered since I moved the white cabinet to that wall - have to re-arrange...). I I went the table route...I could re-do it in same finish as the table. Ideas?? Thanks for any suggestions.
