What about having the oven,stove top and hood in that unused corner of the kitchen? And make it a designers dream kitchen by using beautiful fabric inside of side cabinets. Fabulous old European ideas made new again.
Chalkboard paint ideas for the kitchen. I like the idea of putting the paint just behind the stove and putting the menu up for either the day or week-BUT.worried oil/grease from the stove would stain the paint.
I love the penny tile back there. To make "custom" glass kitchen cabinet doors, just pry off the back wood part, have a piece of glass cut at the hardware store, attach with a heavy duty clear caulk. She used penny tile on the back of the cabinet.
