Day 24

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Eddie had the day off but didn’t go to Breakfast Club with me.  when I came home, I HAD KNOBS!

I love how they look and they look a lot like the back door knob and dead bolt.

They look so cool!  They are just the right size, especially for putting my finger on them but not scratching the door or drawer.  Thanks to Brad for  showing me what to look for and the size.

I  bought 36 and figured I would probably have one left over.  By George, I did.  I asked Brad to put it on the pantry door so it will be easier to open.  Of course, we talked about where, how far up or down and what to line it up with so it looked well.  We decided it would look better lining up with the basement door.

The pantry cupboard looks cool as well as the over the fridge one.

They look so well, a little pattern or interest, but not gaudy.  You can see we have moved a couple things into the kitchen already.

The new baseboards look great at 5″, I don’t think they are too tall and they definitely cover that ugly glue from the old floor.

Molding for inside the new back door frame – we are really cooking now!

Brad also put  insulation between the door fram and the wall so we won’t get drafts from the outside.

It’s amazing all around with knobs, paint molding and appliances.

Well well, another empty parking space – the fridge is finally where it belongs.  Now we have to remember where it is.

We also took up the camelhair rug, the dirt under it was enormous.  Thanks to Brad’s super duper vacuum, it made a huge difference getting all the dirt and debris out of there.

My goodness, we do have proper furniture in the living room and that means shelvers in the cupboards.

Would you believe we have a new deadbolt for the front door?  It was not working all that well, so Brad was able to fix the lower part so it works so much more easily.  Plus, he found a locksmith who could replace the lock above.  It is an old door and we wondered if we needed a whole new lock and door handle – we are so glad it has worked out so well.  Now all the doors open with one key.

This is the last day for Brad, he has a holiday over the weekend and is picking up his daughter from Spokane to come back here for an internship as a physical therapist.  Monday Brad starts a big new project and will see what is schedule is, if there are some down days so he can come back to finish ours.  I told him to come any time, he doesn’t have to call since he has a key for the house and also the garage for his tools.  Now we can really start to move in and make it truly our kitchen!

  1. Your kitchen looks just Wonderful, Liz! I love your new knobs–very classy-looking!! Now you can finally start to move in!! How much is left to do? Not much, I should imagine.
    I can hardly wait to see it in person!!

    • Still need to put the screen door on the back door – it no longer fits, so Brad has to improvise. Some moldings, definitely crown and lower moldings for the cabinets. Also paint the pantry and put vinyl on the floor and on the top step of basement stairs. One of the cupboard’s shelf – all those kind of bits and bobs. We have started to move in, though I have a lot of shelf liner to cut.

  2. I can just imagine you have a lot of shelf liner to cut! And you can’t use the old piece as a pattern for the new one, as there IS no “old” piece!! 😉

    • We did buy shelf liner – except nothing slides on it. So it is not the easiest when it comes to dishes. However, where things are a little drippy or sloppy, I definitely want those to be lined.


Tell me what you think, I would enjoy knowing what you have to say.
