Alternate title: Full steam ahead!
Week Four--what we did:
Prepped the backsplash
Painted the walls, a soft blue-green!
Painted the crown molding, white
Hung cabinet doors and put on hardware
Tore apart pallets & pressure-washed all of the usable wood
Built three new drawers
Put stove together . . . then took it apart again
Painted "window" opening between kitchen/dining room, dark gray
Touched up paint in the dining room, light gray
Lots and lots of painting work for me this week. And it started to look like a kitchen again, which was very encouraging.
|Here's a glimpse of the "crown molding." Bryce built it with a piece of plywood + baseboard molding + 1x2 board + a small piece of "fancy" molding. It's one of my favorite parts of the kitchen.|
|Serious painting face.|
I painted it the same white as the cabinets.
|This was a fun day: finally, green paint!!! We've been planning on painting the kitchen green for over a year now and were waiting for the remodel. I wish we did it sooner....it changes the room so much.|
|It's a "cool" color (blue-based green) instead of the original "warm" yellow, and it just does wonders for the room.|
I think you have to see it in person to truly appreciate the change.
This is my favorite view: dark gray, green, white, and black.
|Wide angle view! This shows a good shot of the track lighting, crown molding and green walls.|
|I also painted the opening between the kitchen & dining room dark gray, to match the rest of the |
openings (without molding) on the main floor.
|We collected 5 or 6 pallets and it took Bryce almost 2 work days to tear them apart.|
That was a big job.
|I pressure washed them, and that did wonders for their appearance and usability.|
We let them dry for about 3 days in the garage.
