Mobile Home Kitchen Remodel Update
Hello friends! I wanted to give you a quick update on the progress of the kitchen remodel. We have been busy over the past few days. The hubby took off Thursday and Friday to work on it so we were able to get a lot done. Friday was spent at the hardware store, Lowes, Home Depot, and back at Lowes. I am beginning to feel like those stores are my home away from home...lol! By the way, if you have an Ace Hardware nearby, they have Clark & Kensington and Valspar sample size cans of paint for $0.99 each which is a great deal. There is a limit of four, but I was able to get 12 with three transactions since the guys know my hubby so well. :) I got some pretty colors to add to my craft stash for future projects. I think the offer is all month long.
I managed to make a pretty tasty supper tonight. we are tired of sandwiches, frozen pizza, and fast food! I made a sandwich we love...it has Applewood bacon, turkey, Muenster cheese, chipotle mayo, fresh guacamole, and tomato on a toasted Kaiser bun. Served with some sweet tea and kettle chips, it was a tasty supper!
Anywho, let me show you what we have been up to!
You can see the wall color here. It is painted the same color as my dining and living rooms. It is a very nice neutral color and blends with everything.
Here are some of the upper cabinets installed. Looking good!
All the uppers installed here except the one that goes over the fridge that we have to order since they don't stock the size we need.
We still have to put the new range hood up and finish some trim and of course the counter tops on this side.
Here is from across the room from my new wall that we built. It will have a raised bar top on it made from old lumber my grandpa cut years ago.
Here's a better shot of that wall. My kitchen is larger now since we extended it out into the dining room about 2 feet. I can't believe how much bigger it feels! Please excuse the tools and mess everywhere and the dangling lights. I have all my new light fixtures but we won't install them until all the construction is done. Don't want to risk them getting broken. There will be open shelves on the sides of the window.
Here's another shot. The trim in the corner has been finished since this photo was taken. The plastic was still on the dishwasher in this photo as well. I am so excited about the counter space I am gaining in my new layout! Please ignore the floor...it will be the last thing we do.
So, check it out.....
Now this isn't installed, but I had to lay it out and see what it was going to look like. I am in LOVE!!! It is exactly the look I was going for. I couldn't be happier! I love the way the corner looks. I saw this idea online. What do you think?
Sadie thinks she is tired of the remodeling...lol!
I was really hoping we would be finished before I go back to work tomorrow, but it's OK. We have the hardest part done and after the counters are finished, it will just be finish work....lights, sink, shelving, pantry, floor, etc. I'm so happy with it and can't wait to organize and decorate!
I hope you had a beautiful weekend and I hope your week is just as beautiful. I have a workshop in Tampa on Thursday, so several of the teachers and administrators from my school will be heading down there Wednesday after school. I am hoping we can run to Ikea so I can pick up a few goodies for the new kitchen, but it will depend on what the others want to do.
Until next time....
