Home StretchCategory: Remodeling
Author: 5 Chicks and a Farmer
We are on the home stretch in the remodeling process.
This week they made great strides in getting the exterior completely finished, painted, and a new deck on the side of the house. The outside looks brand new. I had no idea that a new coat of paint with different colors and some things here and there would make it look this good.
On the interior, the kitchen and bathrooms received cabinets! Woooohoooo! Now you can really see things taking shape.
We went with shaker style cabinets in the kitchen to achieve the farmhouse feel. There is also an island in the kitchen (black thing in the center). We are painting the cabinets white so that is why these are unfinished.
In the bathrooms, we went with a thicker shaker-type cabinet. Ours has a laundry hamper at the bottom of it which I'm very excited about.
The girl's cabinets has some apothocary drawers in the upper cabinet to organize bows and hair dillies. You can never have too much storage in a girl's bathroom. The drawers under the sinks slide out and are step stools which will make my life much easier! When the girls no longer need stools, they flip around and will serve as regular drawers.
We are thrilled with how the cabinets turned out!
The side of the house has a new deck that will get lots of use. The slab that is just in front of the deck will be painted with hop scotches, four square, and roads, and have a picket fence around it for the girls to have another play area outside.
They should be done with everything in a little less than two weeks. We can't wait! I doing a jig right now in my computer chair!
