ID:	13900We have never used the oven and it's to small to really store anything in it so the stove is history. We have never been without electric so we don't need the Propane either so that's history to. We have a portable Butane cook stove that we use a lot outside along with a fire pit and the combo works fine for us. If it rains we just bring the stove inside.
The Micro Wave was to high to use it safely so I lowered it just under my new counter top/cutting board. We now have much more storage space with the Micro gone.

Question? Do have any plan to restore it to its previous condition if you ever decide to sell ? I would think it may not fit the needs of the next owner and make it harder to sell or trade. Just a thought.

That was my 1st thought and there was no remodel. The stove and the wave are the exact width. Electric is still intact and I bought an old cabinet door and removed the center panel, sand and stain,poly(3) coats. Bought a piece of ribbed glass to match the glass on the other side above the sofa.
Cutting board was another old oak cabinet door,cut to fit,sand,stain,poly(4)coats and attach brackets from under side of counter top, screw it down and I'm done.
BTW if in the future I want to just add a stove cook top it will fit with the Mocro still in its current location. It's resting on a little platform approx.2-1/2" up but hidden by the black grill.
The old door I used and finished

Where did you get the counter extention and hardware? I need something similar in the dark color you have for our bathroom. All I really see on the internet is small and white oak.

I bought that counter top extension from Lowe's home improvement. I think it was a 2'x4' shelf material. Not good looking in the raw at all but I knew I could make it look better or at least I think it looks better. I used a piece of construction paper to trace the curve at the edge of the counter top first then cut the wood. I stained it with Minwax Wood Finish (I mixed two stains together) and they were 4 parts of cherry#235 and 1part of red mahogany#225. To get the desired depth of the color it needed 3 coats FOR THAT WOOD! 4 coats of poly to waterproof it.
Ordered the hardware from On line and I'll look that up when I get home tonight for ya.
With the extension up we can still open the door and go in and out with no problem. It great when washing dishes from left to right.
