Howdy friends and Happy Weekend!
Thanks for following along on our kitchen redo.
As we go into week four with the auction over now,
which was a success...but our garage is still full.
How the heck he packs a 2 1/2 car garage is beyond me.
At least now Bob was able to spend more time on the kitchen.
More cabinets being built.
This one with the plate on it was supposed
to have my antique window as the door.
I have saved this window forever it seems.
I wanted an upper cabinet to remind me
of my gramma H's china cabinet with
this glass window pane.
However it will not work here as my cabinet door.
So this cabinet will be an open one now.
The taller cabinet next to the refrigerator
will hold our cat and dog food.
This one will have 4 drawers,
which Bob made as well.
Here is the wood he used for the countertops.
Clamped together to glue in place.
This takes a day.
If all goes right that is.
For some reason this piece did not adhere
to Bob's liking, so he re-did it again.
Then he sanded it smooth.
Unfortunately wood is no longer this wide anymore,
so he has to do it this way.
I was not a fan of butcher blocked pieces,
so this way it is only two pieces instead
of many tiny ones.
Starting to take shape.
This little cabinet being higher was my son's idea.
Our microwave will fit perfectly on it,
and because it is skinnier than the others
on the main wall, I will be able to reach into the corner.
Plus the pets have a place for their food now.
Win win for all!
You can see the two shades of white here.
The creamy white of the cabinets,
and the white for the walls.
The tile came in and I am really getting excited now.
Like a kid in a candy store. LOL
Hopefully week five will be the finished project.
Then I get to decorate.
Hoping everyone has an enjoyable weekend!
Week 4 Blessings To All!
