Two weeks into the reno,
but who's counting?
Chimney cabinet was painted in white.
I asked Bob if he could re-paint
it the creamy white color I finally found.
He also changed the hinges and door pulls.
These will match the other cupboards once finished.
Remember the green cabinet?
Well the gal at our local hardware store
helped me tremendously.
Unfortunately, my bunny was too round for
their color match scanner,
while the latch from the door
that Bob took off was too small.
This gal was so determined to get me
the right color, that she brought out the top guns.
A huge color book from a secret stash.
We took those colors and matched as best
we could and she mixed 2 samples up for me.
One called Benjamin Moore Palace White
was a perfect match!
First wood bottom cabinet Bob was working on.
Now painted Benjamin Moore Whipple Blue.
If you guessed the color blue for the other
half of my color scheme...you were correct.
A French blue color for my French heritage.
Our wood floor was already here.
It is a hickory color which is throughout our home.
Bob is now working on the wood top now.
Yes I will have wood tops.
We were originally going to go with quartz,
but Bob mentioned he might have enough of
the wood left in which he made for a client.
Wood it is now.
Notice our new fridge.
So glad that it is here now.
Bob boxed it in with more beadboard
and painted it the same as the wall.
He just needs to trim it off on the top now.
Cannot wait to get the green light
to decorate this part.
Shhh dont tell Bob but I already added
my blue trencher to the top of the white one.
Te He...he already spotted it.
Will have to take it down before
he paints the ceiling over though.
With my Summers spent on both
my paternal and maternal
I wanted to incorporate my kitchen
with memories of theirs.
Both gramma B and gramma H had
white farmhouse kitchens...
before farmhouse became the rage.
The blue is a nod to
my paternal grandparents French heritage.
My farmhouse kitchen will not have the fancy
stenciled lettering, open wood shelves with black pipes,
Mine will have my prims, crockery and wood,
with my antiques.
Am looking forward to sharing my ideas
once it is finished.
Not much happened this week because
Bob had to set up for his antique auction.
So much going on.
Week 2 Blessings to All!
