On My Mind - New Appliances



This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. To take part, post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here from your blog by saying you're part of "On my mind". Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When you've done that, come back here and add a comment below, with a link to your blog.


On my mind today is our new oven, stove top and range hood.

These came out on special because they were getting replaced with new stock.


In the kitchen, the appliances are not going to fit perfectly into the place of the older ones, so we are getting new bench tops as well. We are choosing colours at the moment, and I am going for a lighter colour this time as there is too much brown in my house.


In the kitchen is this timber post. It is a main beam holding up the roof of our cathedral ceiling. Only trouble is it has been giving us a bit of a headache because we want to replace the bench. This post sits on top of the bench. Under the cupboard the support continues through to the floor. The main beam is tech screwed from under the bench. We had to jack the roof up with acro props a few millimetres to prove that the post wasn't going through the bench all the way to the floor. Luckily it isn't!


All we have to do now is send in our choice of colour to the cabinet makers and then wait. The measurements have been done so hopefully it wont be too long a wait until I get to use my new appliances and nice new bench.

  2. Lucky you to get a new kitchen. I agree with MrsW it is a homely kitchen and I'm sure it's the hub of the house or will be when it's completed. Have a great weekend. Visiting from DTE.

  7. I just had a new benchtop made for our kitchen and the transformation was amazing (I have to admit I also got the Tassie Oak cupboards painted which is sacrilege to wood lovers but I had wood furniture and wood floors and it was all a bit too much). I hadn't seen what was available in the laminex world for years and I was pretty impressed.

    Your new kitchen is amazing - I always love it when people work with what's there rather than rip perfectly good stuff out and start again.

    Take care and looking forward to seeing the finished product!

  9. Getting a new stove is very exciting, isn't it? When we put a new one in, I found that I was so inspired to cook that we had a surplus of delicious treats for a few weeks! But alas for the gang, the novelty did wear off!!!
