What's left to be done in the kitchen before we can say it's finished?
I need to purchase and install the knobs/pulls on all the new cabinet doors including the doors that are yet to be made, polyed and installed.
A backing/high self has to be built on to the back of the island. It's hard to explain how it will look. Guess you'll just have to stay tuned to see it as it progresses.
The French door to the living room needs to be framed and installed.
I need to paint the frames of the old white cabinets we're keeping. And polyurethane the new pine doors and drawer fronts that go on them.
An exhaust fan will be installed over the gas stove.
The upper and lower cabinets to the left of the gas stove are so small as to be nearly useless. We moved the refrig over about 4-1/2" so B will expand each of these cabinets to make them wider and move the cabinet over the refrig to the left.
These two shelves are ready to receive my cook books, but I didn't get to that today.
We worked on installing baseboards around the perimeter of the floor today but still have more to do as you can see in the above picture.
We got the book shelves over the windows back up (after this picture was taken) but then got a little side tracked washing windows inside and out. I'm going to iron the curtain valances tonight and get them up.
I still have to figure out my organization for inside the island unit and most of the bottom cabinets. Hope to get to that tomorrow.
Yep, seems like a lot yet to do but once I get a few more things back into the cabinets, I'll be able to function in there with no problem. Boy, will that feel good. And I sure am glad we're on this side of the kitchen remodeling!
