Still working on my kitchen cabinets.
Top right shows the backsplash I took down. It seemed odd to me that tile was installed on the pantry which is a wood cabinet. We are going to install some live edge shelving there for my coffee supplies and maybe a cookbook or two. There was no trim out molding along the top of the pantry - buying it is actually on today's to do.
Next, those nasty looking painted over hinges. New hinges are in! Husband has said he will put them on and install the doors - shortly.
Next, the demo - a lot more work than I expected and because there was extensive sanding, patching with plastic wood or sheetrock mud, as appropriate, more sanding and lots and lots of very fine dust. I also sand the Annie Sloan between paint layers and again before it is waxed.
Botton pic. is of the other, as yet untouched, bank of cabinets. One that wall we would like to scoot the cabinets to the right about two inches to make a tiny bit more space for the refrigerator. When we do that we will relocate the microwave to the pantry and install a vent hood. I'll also put all that chevron style tile down and put subway tile there instead. That's a DIY for us, but it's a bigger job than either of us wants to tackle before we re-do our bathroom.
It's 56 degrees with 96% humidity on my back porch, aka workspace.
Drying time is causing delays!
