The Kitchen After

We figured the original hearth would remain the perfect spot for the stove. While tiling the surround, I caught sight of a piece of plywood and pried it loose, and a ton of bricks came crashing through the flue within inches of my head. Guess that was one way to remove the remnants of a crumbling chimney. At least we were able to use the bricks to line a path in the backyard.

Shown: Sunny walls, crisp white trim and cabinets, and an embossed aluminum backsplash brighten the cleanup area. For added warmth, the ceiling was painted a metallic bronze. Cabinets: Lowe's.

Wall paint: Valspar's Fools Gold (below picture rail)
