Kitchen Units beach cottage style
Mon 27th, Jul, 2015
Morning lovely beach cottage people, how are you, hope the weekend was good.
Another jolly weekend of DIY here – we’ve been painting (woodwork and the 3rd coat on the walls) and removing things from the kitchen and getting it ready to pull out the sink and units that surround the sink for when the plumber comes…we’ve kinda hit a standstill at this point until he arrives to do his bit (did think about having a go, did not want to flood whole of suburb).
These are the wall units – made for us unfinished so that I could paint them in the look I wanted (eggshell english look). Though I’ve re-thought this look a bit, originally I was going to go for a F&B grey beige in a matte eggshell, but I’ve changed my mind now and I am probably just going to go all white (safer, less disappointment) …may do chalk paint and seal it with a varnish or may just go aqua enamel and be done with it…the beauty of these units and why I wanted proper timber units was because if don’t like or want (need) a new look in my life I can just do it (while everyone else is out of the house)…didn’t want to be tied with melamine units I couldn’t change…
That is about the sum of my weekend (save nice lunch in fave cafe, library visit and sit on beach with new on loan book).
I’ll be back with a few of the things I’ve bought to go in this new room and hopefully the sink unit will be installed.
The bathrooms start today – yes at some point we will have neither a kitchen nor a bathroom. Pleasant. Am reminding self that wanted 100 yr old house near the sea with lickable vintage front door, wide floorboards, fireplaces and French windows.
