Preview of Projects Underway.

This is the inspiration photo for my kitchen. John Jacob Zwiegelaar's home.

Well the kitchen has been indefinitely put on hold. Its too cold to finish spraying the cabinets in the garage. We are going to finish painting the kitchen walls tommorow. I wanted to do a black and white checkered floor but it was impossible to find a quality black and white vinyl that I could afford. We found a nice black and a tanish white from Armstrong. My darling husband is going to do the walls and floors tommorrow.

Hi! I just found your comment on my post about my black and white tiles in my studio. I bought peel and stick vinyl tiles from Lowe's. They are black marble style and a creamy marble style. I also saw black and white vinyl tiles at Home Depot, but you had to use a adhesive to put them down. Hope that helps! Nice to talk to a fellow NC....
