Oh my goodness!
Y’all would not believe the work we (okay, Cy) got finished in the kitchen this weekend! He worked a 14 hour day on Saturday! We were desperately trying to get things finished by Sunday, and we mostly did it. There are a few more things to finish up, but it looks great!
I took a bunch of pictures along the way, but we got so much done that I cannot put it in one post. So my next few posts will be to show you what we did over the weekend.
First, I want to show you the cabinets we added around the stove.
This is what our kitchen looked like before we started…
When we knocked our old pantry out and created a new one, we left a space to the left of the stove for more cabinets space.
Cy built a frame for our new lower cabinet.
The upper cabinet was one of our old cabinets that we painted white and re-used.
Since we did not have matching cabinet doors for the new lower cabinet, we decided to leave it open and add some baskets.
Over the weekend, Cy installed two more upper cabinets. The one in the middle he built. We will leave that cabinet open which is why we put a bead board backing in that cabinet.
The other two cabinets are ones we re-used, and they will have doors on them.
Cy added the middle shelf to the lower cabinet, and it now holds my baskets.
Here it is now. We still have to add the crown molding on top, and the doors to the side cabinets.
You can see the tile back splash Cy installed.
We are getting there!
I plan on showing you our new open shelving next!
