Coming along

Adding to the kitchen chaos are the boxes that contained Christmas presents:

Work on the kitchen is slow but here are some more photos. A space for the fridge and microwave are ready.

The empty space for the dishwasher:

Where are the top cabinets?

Then the tile floor was installed. Can you see the new breadboard?

All the top cabinets were made too short so they went back to the factory to be made taller. So we wait. The cabinet on the floor will have glass shelves and glass doors and be attached to the cabinet top right over the peninsula.

All the brown plywood countertops are temporary to keep the cat from falling into the drawers or pooping in them. Temporary sink and faucet as well until the final countertop will be cut and installed. Round brushed pewter knobs will be attached along with more molding. Once the green tile backsplash is in, the electrical outlets can get new silver covers.

The glass cabinet is on the floor and more molding strips too. The beadboard/wainscoating has been painted green to match the new backsplash tiles to come. All of the blankets stacked on the left are glass shelves and glass doors.

Green tile backsplash is to come along with quartz countertop.

For now we can enjoy the fresh snow this week. One hummingbird taking a break on the feeder under the eaves:

A view from the back window and Nadine not happy with all that cold wet stuff!

Mr. Mole is working his way through these seasonal goodies along with Christmas puddings and mincemeat tarts but he does share with me.

Looking forward to 2022 and what joy it may bring to all my followers!!! Thank you for dropping by!!!

I’m hoping that some time in February when the kitchen project is finished, I can get back to real sewing…well that is the plan anyway!

      Once the kitchen dining table and chairs return and the cat tree, it will be more like home. Right now all we have is a huge echo with all the solid surfaces.

    I even bought a new Shark wet vacuum to keep the floor clean so fingers crossed it won’t be too long now!!! Camping out in the living room for 4+ months is getting old…ha ha.

    Thank you so much for sharing the pictures of the kitchen transformation. I LOVE the green color and especially the countertop with the backsplash tile! Hoping everything gets finished up for you soon!

      Thanks, Marianne, I found the tiles first and then had the challenge to find ANY counter top from Formica to Granite that would work well. This was the only one with a touch of green so we both were so happy. Right now the floor tiles match the snow in the backyard.

    I had a breadboard like that. I was the only one to clean it after use, therefore I also had to clean it before. I quit using it. The kitchen is looking good – that counter top will be gorgeous. It’s a royal pain right now, but will be wonderful when it’s all finished, especially when all the stuff is back in the cabinets.

      Oh Gail,
      I have had a breadboard in every house I have had, even in the UK they made one for me. The way to keep the board clean is to use clear cutting mats which can be bleached and scrubbed after cutting meat and chicken. Having a board at that lower level is great when you are short and want to get leverage when cutting. In the past when I made pie crusts, it was always just the right heigth to roll them out. I think when it comes to restocking the new cabinets, a lot of unused items will go to charity shops instead of taking up space again. I already have new shelf paper in the drawers and shelves in anticipation…ha ha.
