Yippee Skippy! The vinyl tile flooring in the pantry is done, done, done.
We're pretty darn pleased with the way these self-stick tiles went down. A very tight, precise look. If you just made a passing glance at the floor, it almost doesn't even look like individual tiles. Hooray, this choice worked out really well.
The floor did require a coat of adhesive primer (which supposedly enhances the bonding ability) before laying the tiles, but that was easy to put on with a roller.
We're getting there. (Hey, stop looking at me and keep working!)
We picked up the cabinet frames and doors from B first thing this morning and spread them out in the back yard.
It was a beautiful day (not too hot but lots of sun) and I managed to get two coats on the cabinet frames and the fronts of the doors. I'm going to call the frames good at two coats but I want to put one more coat on the door fronts and then either one or two coats on the inside of the doors.
B is coming by for a short time tomorrow to get the cabinets installed (without doors), then Papa Pea and I will work on getting the shelves mounted on the pantry walls.
Whew, another day jam-packed with fun and excitement. Now I have to go work at getting all this polyurethane off my hands . . .
