When we moved into the house two years ago, we put in the minimum of kitchen to keep us going - just the shells with some dodgy fronts - while we finished important things like the earth walls, and the new cottage.
For Christmas Russell promised me kitchen door fronts - or at least some of them! We've always used Ikea carcases for our kitchens. I realise melamine is not the most eco-friendly of materials, but their system is so practical, and Ikea have a few eco credentials.

Russell has done his standard handles made from old silver forks, used in both the other cottages - a theme running through the place!

Next up will be the island bench, with a bench top of solid wattle from our property.
