• Kitchen Cabinets

    So, remember those cute (Minnesotan) second-cousins I mentioned in my last post? Well, this is their Grandpa Kevin:


    He’s my uncle, and he owns a cabinet business called Mainstream Cabinets. It’s located in Mapleton, Minnesota and it was so fun seeing him and his showroom in person last month!

    I’m a sucker for cabinets, counters, and cup pulls, so I was like a kid in a candy store wandering around in there…





    We also enjoyed spending time with him and my aunt at their house in Minnesota Lake:



    My Uncle Kevin built their house, and my Uncle Rick’s house on a neighboring farm:


    (That’s a (Xzeres) wind turbine behind those trees. No power bill- SWEET!)

    And although he can build a house from the ground up, my uncle’s true passion is in kitchen design, and he was so sweet to send us home with some new kitchen cabinet shelves…


    So what’s looked like this for the past 8 months…


    …now looks like this!


    Hooray! No more dishes in our pantry- ha!

    I’m hoping to finish up our guest bathroom makeover within the next couple of weeks, then I’ll start painting those upper kitchen cabinets white.


    We’re planning to personalize the counters, backsplash and island, little by little, between now and the end of the year- and I look forward to blogging about all of our cottage-y changes along the way!
