The difference a day makes

Our cabinet maker, John V came today with all the cabinets for the kitchen and 2 bathrooms. I didn’t expect them to get as far as they did, but they got all the bases in, uppers installed, most of the doors and drawer fronts.. Now just the crown, some finishing and then handles to be done tomorrow. Check out the door hardware..

the real big one I bought to go on the side of the island as a tea towel bar to match the hardware. It’s actually a fridge pull. Smart eh? Next size goes on all the big kitchen drawers, small pulls on the doors, and the knobs are for the bathrooms to match our plumbing fixtures. They’re quite heavy solid hardware. The drawer interiors are dovetail birch. All soft close.

Earlier in the day I stopped by and saw all the doors ready to go.

The mirror door is for our main bath tower that sits on the countertop. This will be my vanity mirror. Dark grey are for the vanities. White for the kitchen.

This photo does a horrible job on the colour as it’s after dark with a flash.. but gives an idea of the tower with the mirror door installed.

Below is the laundry counter (above the stairs going to the basement). If you remember our house previous to renos.. this is situated at the back of the former hall closet, and into new space we reclaimed above the stairs.

Tomorrow I hope to be able to present all the cabinetry completed.. except the kitchen granite that won’t be coming til January. I’m sure it will be well worth the wait!

Bill (Guillermo 'cause he likes pretending he knows Spanish) and I (Amy) have been married since Sept 2005. We live in Southern Ontario, Canada - Niagara Peninsula in fact, smack dab between 2 of the Great Lakes. We love God, our family, our church family, and making each other laugh. (ergo the profile pic, he decided to make our photographer laugh by throwing a leg up on me just before the shutter clicked, which made ME laugh) When we married, I told Bill: "I don't know how to cook" but he had faith in me. So 15 years later, I'm still learning, and having fun. I've never (in my whole life) cooked a whole bird, chicken, turkey or otherwise. I've never roasted a beef, other than in a crockpot on low for 8 hrs. I like trying to find healthy & easy recipes and then I rarely follow them. I don't enjoy recipes that take hours or intricate steps. I have a special fondness for the Podleski sisters, writers/creators of the Looney Spoons, Crazy Plates and Yum/Yummer cookbooks. In 2018 we suddenly decided to rip our small house apart from stem to stern, moving out for 4.5 months while the house was demolished inside and out, and then rebuilt with an addition. If you go back in the archives to July-Dec 2018 you can follow that story. It's made our house open and so much more conducive to entertaining, small groups and large. It's given us the kitchen I've dreamed of to create and learn in. We feel incredibly blessed to be able to write about our journey, our faith in God and some fun recipes along the way. Thanks for joining us.
