Luckily the subfloor was in awesome condition and all I needed to do was clean them.I scrubbed every last board with vinegar, soap and Borax.
Our contractor reconfigured the upper cabinets around for us so we could gain that right sided work space, and the kids didn’t risk the chance of burning themselves coming right up the stairs. You can see the difference in the picture above and the picture below with the cabinet placement.
The color is a mixture of Dark brown and Mahogany. Did you know you don’t have to be stuck with the color right out of the can? You can mix them to get a custom shade. I knew I wanted dark, rustic floors. The refinishing products were all low-VOC as well . Though, I still thought they smelled.
To take the grain down on the cabinets, after sanding, I puttied over the deeper ones with wood putty and sanded again till smooth.
The last step was adding the now painted and distressed hutch,saying buh-bye to the boob light and hanging my grandmother’s rewired chandelier. We added a embellished element to cover up the gap with the old light and new light.
We removed the wood piece over the sink and replaced it with corbels we found on-line. It was a really inexpensive up-grade.
And I needed a spot for my dish towel, So why not a towel bar on the front of the cabinet?
And the light is a thrift store make over, I spray painted the fixture part and ordered a new glass globe from a lighting shop on-line.
You put it on and it dries overnight. You can tell because the water beads right up. The best part is when your coffee maker overheats and smokes about a week after they are installed and leaves a burn mark, you can just sand it right out and reseal.I found some tiles at the tile store that I put on my window sill to keep the water from ruining the wood sill and it’s a nice southern window for my herbs and plant starting.
