Kitchen-- Breakfast Nook: DONE
At last check in, we had completed our DIY farmhouse breakfast table but were still lacking the bench. I'm happy to report the bench has been completed and looks just as lovely as the table. We also managed to get the kitchen painted--and whoa, what a difference it made in there--replace the lighting over the breakfast nook and hang curtains. Yea! Now it feels like we're making progress.
In the kitchen, we still need to: install gas line (for our beautiful oven that's just waiting to be placed), replace countertops, replace sink faucet, reconfigure cabinets, paint cabinets, replace cabinet/drawer pulls, add tile backsplash, do something with pantry doors, replace lighting in kitchen and add island. I should be able to cross a few more things off this list soon because we have the backsplash tile and the replacement light for the work area ready to go, and our gas line will be installed within a week or so allowing us to place our oven (finally!).
This project has been slow and steady. Because of it's location, and because the rest of the play room is finished, we just don't give it our full attention. We manage to do a little something here and there as a filler when we have down time. (Ha! Yeah...down time--what's that, again?) We've finished painting it, and I absolutely love it! We did a color block job with stripes and painted the ceiling. We have the replacement light ready to go up, and the shelves have been prepped for install. The bench seat has also been placed. It's still in progress, but I'm so happy with how it's coming together. The door to the closet was removed, and in it's place I hung a curtain, creating a more open and accessible but still slightly separate space. I can't wait to get this finished so that the kids can start using it!
To finish this up, we still need to: install shelves, upholster bench seat, add pillows, replace lighting, add pictures/accents.
Psst--I'm currently working on a quick but fun tweak to Ella and Ethan's woodland themed room that I'll share with you as soon as I'm finished!
