Just a little teaser picture to show you that work has, in fact, started on the kitchen island. I am taking my time and doing a little bit every night in an attempt to not get too overwhelmed. So far I am really happy with the progress.
Below is my list of things to do:
- Remove Countertop
- Move two drawers from back to front
- Fill in the toe kick space
- Fill in void where the back cabinet doors were.
- Wrap three sides in beadboard
- Install border
- Install baseboard trim
- Install new countertop
- Install countertop braces
That should about do it. Sounds simple right?
I just noticed that I have not put anything up on this blog for almost a month now. Truth is, I haven’t really been doing much around the house in the last 30 days. The last project I completed was the deck and it, combined with the heat, took a lot out of me and left a sour taste in my mouth for home improvement projects. I haven’t had much desire to do anything since.
Now the weather is starting to cool down and I am getting the itch once again to crack open the toolbox and get back to work.
First project back: our kitchen island.
Inspiration: This island here. Minus the newel posts and granite countertop.
I am really getting excited to start this project and even more excited to show it off in its completed state when its all done.
Some other projects I have lined up for this fall include:
- Media credenza
- Media cabinet
- Chair Rail completion
- Garage organization
- Craft room completion
That should keep me busy for awhile.
