Where did I leave off?Posted: September 11, 2010 | |
We’ve been making some great progress on our kitchen renovation. If you missed the last couple of renovation posts, you can click here to see where we started.
So the latest and greatest…
We also started laying hardiback last weekend on top of the sub-floor in preparation for installing our slate tile.
And, we decided on cabinets–our last big purchase decision for the new kitchen. We definitely spent more than a few weeks shopping around for cabinets. Estimates ranged from $5,000
to $18,000. That’s a huge difference. We finally decided on semi-custom cabinets from The Cabinet Authority in antique white.
We’ve got a few weeks of downtime before the cabinets arrive. Until then, we’re going to continue working on the floor. We’re almost finished laying the hardiback thanks to hubby and help from his a We’ll give the walls a coat of paint before we lay the slate.
We’re also considering whether to purchase beadboard for the ceiling. The old kitchen cabinets had false bulkheads and because our ceilings are plastered and textured, they were slightly damaged when we removed the cabinets. Even though the damage was slight, it actually seems easier to put up beadboard rather than attempt to repair the plaster and texture.
