Finally have all the doors sanded, primed and ready to be sprayed. The
last of the molding around the top of the cupboards is up and "verathaned".
Son Randy decided to go ahead with the island base because it doesn't
look like the weather will allow any spraying in the near future.
The depth of the base was increased by 5" which gave me the storage needed
for bigger items but the width and height stayed the same. We used the same
counter-top and did away with the area designated for stools.
Covered it with bead board to match that along the table wall, but will
paint the island white....that's the next job on my list. This was a
first for Randy....it was a bit more involved that hanging shelves in the
shop. He went online looking for plans, studied the old island (which was a
disaster waiting to happen) and finally just dug in and he did a beautiful
job. I love it....and Randy and I are both very proud of Randy.
I sanded down the original oak trim then "verathaned" it. Did the
same thing to the two island doors and they're ready for their final coat.
There's still some detail work to be done and Marisa will be back
down to tend to those things that I can't get down to....or up to.
I guess my next entry about this caper will be after the doors are in place,
the last of the sawdust vacuumed up, floor cleaned and just maybe
a glass of wine in hand
