We’ve had some progress on the kitchen!
I took out the countertops one day….that was painful. This is what they looked like before. I love them now!
I went to Ikea and grabbed the oak butcher block. I think the total for two pieces that I needed was around $250. Not bad. We finally got around to cutting them. Remember….measure twice, cut once. And if you cut too long and need to go back, that’s okay. It’s not okay to cut it too short, because there is no going back after that….ehem.
I’m nearly finished with the upper cabinets as well. I took a little break because I ran out of paint, and I’m also waiting for our router to get here this weekend to finish up the cabinets and router the counters. I have the glass already for the cabs, so the next part will go quickly!
While I was waiting for paint/router, I received all of our drawer pulls and knobs. Aren’t they fab?!
I just love the brass. It’s not for everyone, but I think it looks so cool. And with the stainless appliances….yummy. BTW – does anyone have any hints to cleaning stainless steel? I have no idea what to use.
I should have another update on the kitchen next week!!
Oh, so far I’ve used 1 1/2 cans of ASCP in pure white and 1/4 can of ASCP in paris gray. Not too bad! I’ve also waxed the island and the base cabinets and only used about 1/5 of a can of wax.
I love how bright the kitchen is getting!
