Market Street Kitchen and Dining Room Remodel & Restoration

Before / During / After
This is an 1800's home in Central PA. The pass through where the columns are was all wall w small door I removed and placed columns, all new wring and recessed lighting, plumbing etc.. The cabinets are original and were sanded down and sprayed by me with black satin lacqure with new solid Nickle hardware and shelve pins. Walls are a special stainless steal 4 step stainless steel finish. The dining room has 10' ceilings with an 10" Fypon Crown with a custom finished 4 step pearl paint with glaze below the chair rail. I also did the living room in this house and stairway w new stone fireplace. I will be posting pics as well. I did all the work no sub-contractors used at all.

    I love old houses, but dread old kitchens. This is beautiful. The columns are a perfect touch, and very typical of breaks between living and dining in these old homes. I am not digging the narrow trim around windows and doors, but that is a personal preference I could easily set aside for the joy of such a kitchen.

    Fantastic Job! I have french doors from my foyer to the living room that I would like to do this to but we have a dog and I do not want her on my real oak floors! We already have a completed opening so I would not have to do anything with header and electrical! "Sigh", I will have to keep my doors...but I am clipping this!

    Thank you all so much for your compliments and thoughts. Today I will be posting the living room and fireplace area with restored staircase. The pics do not really show the true size of the trim it is 4" casing and 6" base with 3/4 inch shoe molding. I think it because of my Tablet taking the pics it even shows room much smaller then really is. The ceilings are 9' in kitchen and 10' in the dining room with a 10" crown in dining room. I would never use a small casing or base on this type of home. When you are actually in the space it is quite a perfectly proportioned. Thank you all again
