Glass Doors have "wavy" glass installed by local glass shop. Grandma thought Saran Wrap was on them :)
I love my Fiesta Dishware!
I was not planning of getting new appliances, but a comedy of errors happened during the remodel. Hubs was transporting our relatively new Maytag white gas range out to the garage. A trip and a crash= broken range. Was it usable? You bet. However, the glass door was cracked, handle broken, dent where the controls were, so I said I need a new one. It turned out to be what started the hunt for new appliances. I wanted to streamline the look since our kitchen is small while getting the best bang for my buck.
With the redesign of the kitchen, we opted for a micro, cook top and built-in oven all from GE Profile series. I purchased the micro and oven at Sears when they had No Interest, No Payments. I purchased the cook top from eBay. There was a scratch on it, thus reducing the cost by $600 dollars. That's a lot of cash to save. Every so often I use a black Sharpie Marker to cover the scratch.
I love not having that little crack between the stove and the counter top where greasy drips go. The cook top is sealed gas with a glass top. It is very easy to clean. I Windex it down after each use and once a week clean the grates with hot soapy water in the sink.
I admit that I spent way too much for the oven. It's a convection oven and it took me 2 years to even use that option. I am not much of a baker, but it does brown cookies faster than normal. I probably could have gotten away with a cheaper model. Even so, all the appliances match and I like that.
My subway tile I purchased locally. I was going to use the subway tile from Lowe's, but my contractor told me to check out local tile places to make sure I wasn't missing anything. I fell in love with these tiles. They are not your standard flat subway tiles. They have a bubble appearance and add a subtle difference to the kitchen. I spent a total of $150 for the tile and supplies. The receipt says they are called "Sadon White".
I recently bought a 3M Command hook in ORB and used it under my sink cabinet to hold my pot holders. I can't tell you how thrilled I am with this little hook. Best few bucks I spent. Go get yourself one.
