Darling,

If I could I would wrap this all up with a bow.

Perhaps Roast Chicken will jazz up the kitchen just as well.  Happy Birthday, Mr. B from Mrs. Blandings and the boys.

Kitchen designed by Darryl Carter, Met Home, May 2008.

This is the most interesting book. When I left Wales, I was given a copy by a friend who was a brilliant cook.

Happy Birthday, Mr. B!

Happy Birthday to Mr. B indeed!
I really needed this post as the cabinet builders are coming out to measure my kitchen this morning (oh 45 minutes and I am still playing around online).
But I wanted to do black painted cabinets and this I think is a sign and a great inspiration to show them this morning. I like the traditional-shaker lines of the cabinets but with the dark color. If you only you KNEW how small my kitchen actually was! I cook all of the time and I dream of a REAL kitchen in my next place and outdoor space too (I think that I could really be ok with giving in to only 1 bathroom and no fireplace for a large beautiful kitchen and a nice little terrace).
Thank you for the posting...I am inspired!

That Roast Chicken book is really fabulous. And roast chicken has got to be my number one favorite Sunday dinner!

Love your kitchen! I too have black cabinets and always receive many compliments from guests that visit. I really like the subway tile you did by the cooktop - like play off of the dark.
