Painted and Glazed Cabinets .. How to Step by Step, If you love painted cabinets with that "Old World" feel see how I achieved the look in my kitchen.  I can't however  take all of the credit for this remodel.  Without my sister-in-law I could not have achieved all of this in 1 week.  Thank You could never convey how grateful I am for her help and how much fun I had with her that week.  Take a look I have tried to break it down day by day I hope this will inspire you to try this on your own.  If you don't have a sister-in-law I rent mine., Kitchens Design
Open Living/Dining Room/Den and Kitchen, This condo is in an historic 1902 publishing company's old offices. (The historic Lippincott Publishing Company) 

We essentially bought a white empty box of 1900 sq ft and had to do everything from scratch -- including bring up the plumbing and electric. We worked with an architect to design the space, but much of it was our own design and ideas.

Did all of the decorating myself. And while proud of it, would appreciate some thoughts, help, ideas on how to improve it. I enjoy decorating and design - but its just a fun hobby., Living Rooms Design
HGTV RMS Inspiration Room - my new kitchen photos, My kitchen is one of the inspiration rooms on episode #208 of the Rate My Space Show. Thank you Angelo, Jillian and HGTV for choosing my kitchen as an inspiration room. It was quite an honor and a lot of fun being on the show. I renovated my kitchen a couple of years ago. We went from an outdated 1980's kitchen to this. The original kitchen had pickled oak cabinets with white formica countertops. I wish I had taken a "before" picture to show you. The change is remarkable., Kitchens Design
Something's Gotta Give Inspired Kitchen, We built what was supposed to be our "dream house" in 2006-07, but I was designing the kitchen in my mind for years before that. I won't go into the gory details, but suffice to say we had a LOT of problems, many still outstanding, and it's likely the house may never be worth what we ended up paying for it, thanks to a crooked/incompetent contractor and other woes. 

On the bright side, though it's not perfect, it's still pretty comfy, especially if you don't look too closely, and it's a lot nicer than any house I ever thought I'd live in, even in my wildest imagination. It wasn't that long ago that I was making Thanksgiving dinner for 12 in a tiny apartment with a 20-year-old coil top stove and 3 sq. inches of counter space, so I do know how very, very lucky I am.

I did all the design, from basic floor plan to decorating, myself, so blame me if you hate it. And, no, not everything is exactly as I'd like it, but the money tree didn't take root, so I work with what I have, including a lot of flat pack furniture. I was inspired by, among other things, the Hampton's beach house in the movie Something's Gotta Give, even though we're nowhere near the water, unfortunately. I guess I'd call my overall "look" cottage beach house via Pottery Barn.

To answer the most frequently asked question ... I'm an avid cook and baker and often feed a crowd so, yes, I really do use all those ovens. There are five, in case you're counting: two electric, one gas, a convection/steam oven and an Advantium.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to share comments, and a special thank you for all those folks who shared their own kitchen pictures, many of which inspired me. I am just trying to return the favor.

The lighting...  How did you do that?, Some people have asked "How did you get the lighting under the bed?"  The lighting is both inexpensive and easy to install.  I secured rope lighting inside the bed frame using plastic clips that have an adhesive backing. ...costs about $10 and can be found at most hardware stores.  The rope lighting is plugged into an outlet that is connected to a dimmer light switch and can adjusted by a remote control devise.Thanks for all your wonderful comments and encouraging 5-star ratings!, Bedrooms Design
