We got our kitchen in!! Thanks, thank you, THANKS to Dan ( Douglas’ dad) and Douglas (our friend who was in our wedding) and Britta (Douglas’ wife)!! I am so excited!! Its perfect!! It’s wonderful and bright and white!! It’s big!! It’s just as i wanted, just as i dreamed!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
They came on Nov. 17 and 18- so it has been a while but i have been busy, busy like a bee.
I kinda was too busy to take pictures when they first got started. Britta and i were taking all the doors and drawers out and labeling them for the guys. And i was just too excited to think of anything else!!
They worked a long time to get the penninsula to be strong and solid. It turned out perfect- Dan did some fixing for me too! I was going to order a toe kick on one of the cupboards but when i saw the price for the option i never got it. When the cabinets were set up i realized i should have ordered it, and didn’t know how it was going to work. But Dan came to save the day and built me a toe kick!!
Everything turned out just great!! The wood counters are awesome!! They are not finished yet- i have been a bit torn on how to. There is really only 2 choices i have found- 1 is too oil them every month FOREVER. And the other is to put the poly on them. Which is not supposed to be food safe- but what most tables are finished with. (i am not using the wood as a cutting board, it is a counter) So i have made a test plot and also applied stain to see if i like anything like that. The stain can only go on if the poly goes on. I am leaning towards the poly- applying the oil once a month is not hard and dosen’t take long, but on my test plot the oil soaked up into my mable tiles. Maybe a bit shy of like 1/2 inch- so i don’t want to worry about that and i also don’t want to worry about any water damage; which i can see happening.
It’s coming along!! I’m so excited!!
