When deciding how to design the kitchen counters and entryway, we realized the entryway window had been positioned two feet too far to the west. Because the cement floor for the kitchen had already been poured two years earlier, it was impossible to move the kitchen cabinets because the cement would show. This misplacement also meant the counter back would impinge on the window. Our question was how could we turn this porblem into a "Oh, that's a cool design" instead of an "Oops! that sure was a mistake."
As we looked for a material to use as a facade for the side of the cabinets that would show in the living room and entryway, we found the answer to our problem.

Our hope is that these things, along with a cushion on the stone windowseat will make this a comfortable place to welcome visitors.
