Island Project – Preview

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
  • Prime
  • Paint
  • Antique

That should about do it. Sounds simple right?

Taking a Much Needed Break

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
  • Landscaping
  • Craft room completion

That should keep me busy for awhile.
