I had Friday off and ended up spending most of the day sanding down cabinets. They came out looking great; a natural light pine distressed with a hint of dark stain peeping through. Ultimately they will get two light coats of matte brown followed by white paint and distressed lightly.
Yes. We are re-doing the kitchen.
And I still had time to take a nice 25 mile bike ride through the countryside (hence this post’s photo, taken just outside Rexville, WA).
After the cabinet distressing will come cabinet hardware, followed by new countertops, an old-fashioned sink with a new vintage faucet, and we’ll finish it off by laying down the rich, dark brown bamboo flooring we put throughout the rest of the house.
Such laborious work is perfect for a playlist. I threw the August 10 show together and gave it two listens while completing the day’s project. Favorites include new tracks by Darlings, Rory James and the Majestic, Wickerbird, Blonds and Pan.
