The light came from Masterpiece Lighting here in Atlanta. If you Google Craftsman Light Fixtures you will find lots of options. Good Luck!

The client did not do a diagonal upper cabinet in the corner because she did not like the look of it that close to the hood.

The wood shown here is Satin (the trim paint equivalent of eggshell). I don't think I would go semi-gloss.

The doors and transoms shown here are Spanish Cedar, stained a dark color. It is a wood very similar to mahogany but not as expensive.

I got them here in Atlanta at the Scotts Antique Market several years ago. I think that vendor may still sell them though. I have no idea of how to get them other than go to the show, which is the 2nd weekend of each month.
