Yes. Ben and Rebecca's kitchen is getting close to finishing. A lot has happened in the past several weeks... These DIY budget projects take some time, and much work on everyone's part to make it happen. We last left the kids finishing the wood floor:
And here it is! They did a great job and were able to realize their vision under all those layers of linoleum!
The cabinets are all painted and have new hardware :
And the sink and countertops are installed.
They chose reclaimed bowling alley for their countertop. After a thorough sanding and trimming, it ends up being an enviable, gorgeous option. It will be finished with a food grade mineral oil/wax.
Today the subway tile backsplash goes in... And check out the stainless hood vent that a friend installed!
Notice the beadboard that now covers the old concrete chimney? JR added that to tie in with the beadboard in other areas of the kitchen. The walls and beadboard all got a fresh coat of white paint which, along with the white subway tile is going to create such a light and bright space loaded with texture.
I've never been so excited to see a project come together!
