Beautiful and resourceful! I'm curious, though about replacing your damaged floor with wood. Won't that get just as damaged if you have another issue that floods your kitchen? The previous owners put wood flooring in the kitchen and you can tell there have been flooding issues around the sink and dishwasher. I was thinking of replacing it with slate. Does the wood you picked repel water or resist warping?

How much functionality is there in the buffet drawers? Do any of them work?
