What's this? An update on my kitchen remodel? Finally?? Yes, yes. I know you have been waiting desperately for another update. So have I. And here we go!
Many cabinets! And check it - Cody built the base for the island last week.
Could you die? It looks like a kitchen! Oooh, I'm loving it. Cody and I busted out so much on Labor Day - we worked until the wee hours. Can I just say how much I love that crafty man? He is Mr. Incredible - he can do anything. Doing this remodel with him has been a blast. When we were assembling cabinets a few days ago in the garage around midnight, we were laughing and punchy...then I said, "I know this remodel is taking us forever, but there is no one else in the world I would rather be doing this with."
He said, "Me, too!"
To which I replied, "....Lie."
Because lets face it, he's done about 85% of the work. (ok 90%)
Today while I was assembling drawers and such, Cody secured the island base to the floor. He also ran electrical so we'll have power in the island. YAY! Yeah...I just got excited about outlets.
And another teaser? LOOK at our countertops! Well...at least take a gander at what they'll look like when they're done.Have I mentioned these before? A guy was selling them on ksl.com. They're reclaimed wood from train cars. Um, awesome? So perfect for a countertop, it's like a giant butcher block.
We're going to leave the marks and discoloration in them...a bit rustic. LOVE it. Cody is going to build a table top out of it, too. See? 85%. 90%
Next update? We'll talk about my gorgeous buffet I'm refinishing...
