...this is what we have!
me and my dad are a lot alike. we tend to obsess over projects until they are done. hence, we have worked on this kitchen 7.5 hours since yesterday morning. hah hah. wow. we are crazy or something.
case in point: my dad came up with this clever idea to light up the window (and outdoorsy picture i plan to put up behind it), with a flourescent light hung up behind the back. it also ended up straightening out the back piece which curved a tad so my dad was happy about that too.
win win......win. (if you're an office fan)
this is where we were last night, and you can kinda see the light coming through our hole-window. cute no?
for the oven, i had this set of cooling racks i picked up at the dollar store, and we screwed in some tiny pieces of wood on the sides to form the racks. fun!
today we cut out and put in the door of the oven...rory is in charge of the plexiglas. can't wait for that! and our handles. we had to special order them, meh.
we picked up some magnetic latches from the hardware store for about 89 cents each, to keep our doors closed. simple, cheap, and that little *thwunk* is so satisfying when you close them!
so, we have the fridge door in, missing one hinge (lost in my parents garage, probably never to be seen again), the sink, window piece is cut and ready, and doors for the sink cabinet are ready and waiting for hinges. next step: finishing the sanding and spackling and then it's time to paint! i THINK i know what i'm gonna do...i hope it ends up looking like it does in my head. we will see!
i'm also up to my ears in christmas shopping and gift making and cookie making. no wonder the holidays go by so fast!
