Hubby had more confidence in me than I did. But, I put on my big girl britches and got to work and guess what?? I actually did it??!!! I built the front frames, built up the sides and finished cutting and installing the crown molding! Whew!! I used a Kreg jig to put the front frames together. That is a handy tool. It really makes the frame solid and sturdy. (There are so many tutorials out there, I'd check them out if you want to know more.)
I used pretty funky chunks of wood to give the sides support... No one will see them...
One side complete!!
Hubby also helped out with this outlet in the long counter that for some reason the builder put in sideways.... Kinda weird, lazy? whatever...
Hubby fixed it! Smooch!! <3
There is a gap at the ceiling, right at the corner cabinet. I had it all the way up to the ceiling but apparently my ceilings aren't level, because the molding wasn't straight on the cabinets. So, I dropped it down and will fill in that area with caulking and it'll be good to go!
Now to order cabinet doors! I'll just be ordering the frames for them and installing glass in them.
Hopefully, this will be the last picture of my orange cabinets! As you can see I've emptied my cabinets and taken off all the doors. I debated on whether to empty them or tape them, like I did those two in the picture. But, I decided it was time to clean them out anyways.
Yesterday, I sanded everything. I need to finish up some touch ups, today. Then I'll wipe it all down and get ready to prime.
I have been super busy lately! My daughter's college graduation is this weekend. And after I had already started the kitchen we decided to throw a graduation party in 2 weeks! WHAT??!! Oh, yes. I am going to try my darnedest to get my kitchen painted and back in order by then!
Oh, and another thing I've been working on.... I'm heading up a committee to update our ladies bathroom at church. It was seriously stuck in a pepto-bismal pink, 80's floral border style. I just received permission to blog about it, so I'll be sharing all that we've done in there and let me tell you it looks SOOOOOO much better!! And let's add one more thing.... 2 apartments in our building just became vacant, that I need to clean are get ready. Lord, with You, All Things Are Possible!!
I have been blogging for about 4 years and I enjoy sharing all the things that go on here at The Stonybrook House. From building to decorating, crafting and cooking, and so much more. I enjoy gardening and a healthy lifestyle. Most importantly I love The Lord Jesus my Savior and my wonderful hubby of 28 years!
