The image above was taken before the hardware was installed and before the top went on. It is stained maple, I love the dark wood, it is really gorgeous and it helps to make the buffet look like a piece of furniture. I am referring to the top piece. The doors are all painted maple.
I mentioned the last time I posted on my buffet that I did not like the straight legs. I put pieces of cut out paper on the inside of them so I could get an idea of what it could look like. I really like this look, it needs a bit of tweaking, but I will cut out the added pieces in a couple of weeks and glue it in place. What do you think, does it look better, does it go with the old style better?
The microwave is the only appliance in so far. The stove and fridge arrive on Feb. 9Th.
We still have a very long to do list:
- three light fixtures to install
- flooring to go in
-appliances to be set in place
- more bead board to go on the wall around a window and near the refrigerator hole
- heat vents and air return vents to go in
- new taps to arrive some time, they are back ordered at the moment, could be a month before I get them
- under counter lighting to be purchased and installed
Okay, I'm exhausted just writing them out. The good news is that I am flying to British Columbia on Monday and I will be gone for two weeks and most all of this will be finished when I return. The appliances will arrive the day after I get home. If you don't see much happening here you will know why. This chick is flying the coop!
Happy weekend to all of you lovely bloggersand friends!
