Forgive me for being so slow to posting lately. We have spent so much time lately planning our new kitchen redo (which is slowly coming to life). Not only are we redoing the kitchen, but the dining room, laundry room and another hall off the dining room going that leads to the girls rooms. WHEW!
In the long list of things to do:
Dining Room -- Paint china cabinet, remove built-in mirror, recover new* chairs, build new* table, cover all walls with beadboard (that has to be painted), all new crown molding, 2 new walls built on each side of the entry to the living room, new media cabinet beside one of those new walls, baseboards, new french doors, sew curtains for french doors, sew tablecloth, find artwork for dining room.
Kitchen -- Cover walls with beadboard (and paint it), new crown molding, new baseboards, all new cabinets (custom built by father-in-law), new counters (that would be by me), new custom range hood cover (built by DH), install plate rack and new shelves above sink, install new sink, faucet and plumbing, moving refrigerator to new location (to create more cabinet/counter space), remove one wall, sew new curtains that match those in dining room.
Laundry Room -- Cover all walls with beadboard, new crown molding and baseboards, new cupboards across rest of wall (FIL building -- oh I love him!), move freezer to pantry, install current dining table along wall for "folding space", build two doors, one for broom closet (which is currently just a nook), and another for a small storage spot.
Kid's Hallway -- Cover with beadboard, crown molding, baseboards, replace 4 doors (both girl's bedroom doors, bathroom door and coat closet door), build storage shelf with doors (another DH project) [they simply do not have enough space in their tiny bathroom -- so this will be their storage], trim around all doors.
So, yeah, I'm very busy these days! I have TONS of upcoming posts -- a $200 sink for less than $20, building a dining room table (think windows!), making my own counters, and more!
Wanna sneak peak?
The white is the color of the walls, trim, and cabinets, the black will be the counters and the green will become an accent color. Ahhhh...I love remodeling!
