The 'before' shots on AT are always badly lit, poorly styled, taken from a crappy angle, etc. It would be far more genuine if the before and afters were treated equally in these ways. Often I think the afters look better only because of those factors (not this one, however; that door is cute).

It's looking great! I'm curious, I've been reading each post, but I must have missed where you decided to go with an under-counter stove - I thought you were set on a wall oven?

I like your cat's very stern assessment of it all.

We've had lots of friends come to NYC from Australia (where I'm from) and the flight, door-to-door, is about 24 hours, so you can assume they will be exhausted and feeling grimy.

Apart from the basics such as towels, etc, I always ask in advance for a list of groceries they'd like to see in the pantry/fridge when they get there (their kids' favorites, for example). It's always appreciated.

@LyonStill. Yes, I'm wondering why they would remove the most unique-looking part of the piece. The 'after' is very generic and looks like it could be plastic.

Me too! I stained them and they look great. Perfect height, and great size drawers for books, etc.

Love this place! Have you considered removing the paint from the transom windows? It would allow even more light through and make the ceilings seem higher, I imagine.
