I have to brag on my very talented husband! He is a banker by day, and a cabinet maker by night. (Or hardwood installer, or tile layer, or light hanger, or plumber, or stair maker…get the picture?)
My man can do it all!
He has made me some beautiful cabinets for our guest house. I want to share some pictures of the process we’ve made so far.
First of all, he went to Lowe’s and got lumber to make two open shelf cabinets. The small cabinet in the middle used to be over our stove in our house until we removed it and put a microwave in its place. It had doors on it, so he took them off and removed the wooden vertical bar down the middle.
He added crown molding on the top of each cabinet.
For our bottom cabinets, we re-used some cabinets from an island we removed from our other kitchen. And my husband bought a cabinet from Lowe’s for the sink to go on. I wanted cottage style doors on the bottom cabinets, so he built me new ones with beadboard and trim.
Then for the fun part…it was time to put them up in the guest house!
Oh yeah, I forgot to take a “before” picture of my favorite part…the plate rack! Yes, he made that too! I love the look of a plate rack. (He has made the doors for the rest of the bottom cabinets, but just hasn’t put them on yet.)
One of my favorite blogs is The Lettered Cottage, and I got my inspiration for adding the corbels to the bottom of my black cabinets from that blog. I love the charm it adds to the cabinets. We got them from Home Depot for about $7.00 each. They make a world of difference!
To the left of the sink, I wanted some open cabinets on the bottom to put some wicker baskets in. So my honey made me some!
Those shelves will be painted white as well.
By the way, we picked the sink up at the Habitat Store for $7.00!!!!
It is a white, deep, double sink.
Here’s a different view.
As you can see, he has installed the Hardi backer board on the countertops to lay the tile on. We got a great deal at the Habitat Store on some tile to use in our back splash that I will be showing you soon.
As I am writing this blog, my guy is installing the tile countertops, so I will be sharing those pictures soon too.
I will also be posting pictures of a furniture re-do that I am very excited about too!!! Stay tuned…
