When I say “done,” I mean done for now. 🙂 In the last post, my oven wall in the kitchen looked like this.
We worked all evening Friday and most of the day on Saturday and now it looks like this.
Pretty close to my original mock-up, right?Before we installed the pantry I was concerned it might appear to block off the stove area, but when I saw it put together I thought it really completed the wall. It’s so handy to have my pantry close to the stove. Ryan was able to relocate the light switch that was previously on the wall to the side of the pantry. I am so happy with how this remodel is turning out. We still need counters, backsplash, paint and the toe kick, which we will do once the rest of the cabinets are in place. I’ve had some time to think about the paint color and I am sure I’ll be sticking with the Frosted Jade paint color from Behr. I love how it seems to set off the cabinets and hardware. It gives this old kitchen a fresh and clean feel.
We removed the base cabinets from the back wall and will continue with the flooring all the way to the sink wall. Then we can begin installing the rest of our cabinets. We need to remove the old window on the back wall and install the sliding patio door soon, since I have a base and wall cabinet that will be installed partially over that old window area. Here is a refresher of the plan for this wall. I can’t wait to see the rest of this kitchen transformed!
The whole family broke in the new oven wall together by helping me bake a birthday cake for Levi and Micah’s birthday party. I can already see the fun, happy, family memories we will make together in this new kitchen!
Have a great week,
