Thank you so much!!

The upper cabinet measures 58-1/2" W x 13" D x 51" HT
My under cabinets measure 24-1/4" D and 25-1/4" on the soapstone.
Hope this helps!

Thank you for sharing the details of your beautiful home. Did you use White Dove Satin Impervo on the bead-board backsplash in the kitchen? My husband is concerned about using bead-board as our backsplash. Have you found it to be a durable option?

Marjorie, Yes, I did use BM's White Dove in the Latex Satin Impervo. For me, it has been a very durable option.

Thank you so much for sending me the video on the making of Shaw fire clay sinks! It was really informative and so interesting. Very much appreciated!

Your kitchen is absolute perfection. I seen it so many times and never saw this renovation post. I do have a few questions if you be so kind to answer. First I noticed you didn't take the cabinets and trim all the way to the ceiling and wondered what the reason was? Also you mentioned that your painter hand painted the cabinets. Can you be a little more specific about the process ? I love the fact that you didn't want them to be perfect. I saw your paint choice but wonder if they were oil base primed first or just painted with two coats? Thank you so very much

Thank you! Being an antique house once the new ell was added to the farmhouse the two ceilings didn't match up perfectly, so dropping the cabinets and making them level in the room resolved that issue. The primer coat on the cabinets were sprayed at the cabinet makers shop. They were installed primed only, then my painter applied two coats of the Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo in Latex. I believe the primer was oil, but don't remember for sure. They have held up beautifully.
