New Kitchen Part I
There is still plywood exposed on the foor, and a little step-up to where we stopped ripping up the 5 layers of linoleum on the rest of the kitchen. People trip on the little step - which I guess we can enjoy as built-in comic relief. No dinners have been lost to spills yet! We still need to caulk between the tile and counter, finish with trim on the left and right walls around the tile, and add one shelf on the wall on the right (beside the fridge). The bottoms of the cabinets need trim, and the cabinets themselves need painting and hardware. But we have sturdy, undamaged subfloor, no holes in cabinets, extra counter top space, and no gaps between the counter and the wall. And, as one of my friends exclaimed upon first seeing the new cabinets, "the cabinet doors CLOSE!"
Also, that blue wall is starting to grow on me. I was planning all along to paint the walls light grey when we renovated the kitchen, but now I'm falling in love all over again...
