More bits

Believe it or not things have been happening.
The kitchen is nearly finished...but I'm waiting on the final coats of paint to show photos...
Mark this week removed 3 of our doors and refit them so that they actually open AND close!
He also fixed the pocket doors, and a bunch of other little stuff...and although crossing them off the list is very satisfying it doesn't make for great blogging.

The basement gate got put in...
A new light in the top floor bedroom (that works!)
And a soap dish in Todd's bathroom ...
All little, but boy do they add up.

Super Storage

The old cabinets from my studio have finally found their home...after being hung in the kitchen (and taken down), hung in the bathroom (and taken down)...they end up fitting perfectly in my office. This was their last chance and then they would have been destined for Craigslist.Mark hung them for me yesterday. I can't wait to give them a fresh coat of paint and fill them.
So much needed space!!

Pantry has it's day.

Mark has only been back for one whole day and already the new cabinet is up on a finished base, set in to the wall, and ready to go. It's funny how ridiculously small the smeg fridge looks next to it.
Tomorrow...wainscot kitchen? Or am I too optimistic?

Front steps

About a week ago I painted the last coat on the cement steps...and then I scraped, primed and painted the railings.
For the last four (yes...four) days I have been scraping the gate, newel posts, and fencing. Gives a new meaning to Labor Day weekend, doesn't it. On the good side-- I have met just about everyone in the neighborhood. On the bad side--I can barely move.
The coming rain is a relief because I need a breather before I can even think about painting them.

From Dumbo...

Giant food pantry for the kitchen.
It almost didn't make it out of their building...or into mine.
This will hold a lot of jam.
