So we didn’t quite make the two week deadline but I think we’re coming in pretty close. Thursday or Friday of this week the construction should be finished and everything installed but it will take a few more days after that for me to get everything moved in and the painting finished, etc. I am very ready to have a stove and dishwasher again!
You can see in the above photo that the cabinets have been painted and I painted a chalkboard wall and a frame around it.
Painting is underway but still has a way to go.
No renovation in the history of renovations has ever gone perfectly and we had our hiccups over the weekend. First of all, the two cabinet doors for the sink cabinet are too small and have to be reordered and painted. You can see the gap in this photo:
And there was a miscommunication between me and my contractor about the cabinet pulls and she thought I was using the old ones. So, the existing holes were not filled and painted over when the cabinets were painted. That got remedied today. Tomorrow the floor gets painted and Thursday the plumbing and electrical go in.
Also, you may have noticed some changes to the blog and website. I am slowly getting the blog updated with images and more pages and special thanks go to my husband who is single-handedly doing this for me!
