So we set a goal of being ready to prime cabinets on Sunday. I will confess now that we didn't make it but we got a lot accomplished.
All the cabinets, the drawers and doors are sanded. I got pretty competant with an orbital sander. It got the better of me at first but I can handle it like a pro now.
We built the shelf for the microwave
|we saw this pipe idea on a home improvement show|
It makes a big difference I think! I am happy with the choices and it was pretty cheap - the inside corners were hard because we broke our coping saw blade on another project and didn't have another one. We were able to borrow an air brad nailer - oh I'm in LOVE with that tool! Did you know that wood glue feels like Jello mousse?
But I saved the best for last - we decided to put the sink in - temporarily but we now have running water in the kitchen!! And I learned plumbing skills - compression fittings, elbows, p traps and t's
|primer and PVC pipe glue - my new go to fragrance - that stuff stinks!|
|Troy's plumbers putty pretzel|
Isn't she beautiful....
|just waiting for the great unwashed|
| height and distance - the perfect combination - a field goals kickers dream and mine!|

And yes the whole job passed the plumbing inspectors watchful eye....
