Kitchen Remodel | Week 3

Kitchen Remodel | Week 3

It is the third week of the kitchen remodel, and we are beginning to see real progress! (You can follow our remodel journey by going to Week 1 and Week 2).

We finished assembling the final cabinet from Custom Service Hardware.  It was the base corner lazy-susan, and we saved the best for last!

Kitchen Remodel | Week 3

I wanted to document our final cabinet build, but Steve was more focused on organizing the screws than documenting this sweet moment…

We also began refinishing our wood floors this week.  If you’re local, we are using Full Circle out of Indianapolis.

I am so excited to say goodbye to our orange hardwood floors…

Besides being orange, they were pretty cupped, so it took several days of sanding.

The result was stunning!  It looks like new floors.  Now we are trying to decide on a stain color.  We don’t want to go too light (and risk any yellowing), and I know not to go to dark (we had dark floors in our previous home, and they show everything)!

Every room in our home (not having floors refinished) is filled with stuff.  Lots and lots of stuff.

Yesterday we began hanging the cabinets from Custom Service Hardware.  Since we are going all the way to the ceiling with the cabinets, Steve checked how level our ceiling line is.

We found the lowest point in our ceiling line and drew a line for the top row of cabinets.  We began at the corner and went out.

My dad came and helped us with the cabinet hanging.

It’s coming together and looking like a kitchen once again!

    Special walnut by min wax is a great color
    Not too dark or lightWe have it in our home!! Good luck. We love our floors with 3 coats of polyeurothane. No problems from dog nails

    I am preparing my kitchen to redo as well. Can’t wait. However, my question is…..I am installing a range hood similar to yours. My go to guy says it must be vented thru the roof. How do you clean the inside of the sheet metal from the range hood to the roof? It seems it could be a geese fire waiting to happen.
