Day 23

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

A whole lot more comfortable day – I slept really well last night.  Also a good time to paint, when I came home from rheumatologist and infusion, Brad that the other three doors painted.

The doors looked really great, though Brad was concerned the yellow of the basement door might show through.  He wasn’t too sure about the two sides of the sliding door either – one side pink, one side green.  He had to do an extra coat for the inside fo the pantry door because of the darker blue.

They turned out beautifully and  it was cool enough so the paint stayed wet long enough to use the brush to smooth the strokes.

It’s my photography that makes the tops of the doors look yellow, not Brad’s paint job.

He also had the paint shop open again for the molding for the kitchen baseboards.  The old floor had the lino curved up the wall with glue that keeps it on forever.  Brad tried to get it off, but he would have to use a chisel and a lot of time and elbow grease.  He found some 5″ molding and those are the three wide pieces.

Not quite sure where the narrower pieces go – I know Brad does.

He is very versatile – he has set up his saw in several places, depending on what he is doing.

Today is right outside the small garage door – close to an outlet and nothing he can  mess up – certainly not the flower beds.

I think these long molding are for the back door.

The doors are dry and now they are in their proper places and fitting in with what we had in mind.  This side of the pocket door faces the living room, but it will fit in when we paint the living room.

Now the doors are their proper color – what a difference they make to the kitchen.  The bits of blue tape on the left are holding the trim for the partitions surrounding the fridge.  Brad glued them and it using the tape to keep them in place.

The basement door also looks like part of the kitchen now.

All the cabinet doors have been taped and are ready for the knobs.

I am anxious to see how they look with the knobs.

Everything is measured and aligned, all ready to go.

Now the pantry door is hung – wow, how wonderful it all looks.

That is one knob on, Brad wanted me to see how it looks.  Beautiful!

It is going to be so cool when they are all on!

This is my cabinet knob.

Brad put up a piece of the 5″ molding so we could see how it looks – I love it.

It really is coming together now.  We are leaving the cardboard on the floor until it is all finished so nothing has a chance to scratch, scrape or gouge my lovely new floor.
