My DH has been working tirelessly over the past several weeks redoing our kitchen cabinets.
Today I thought I would share with you a sneak peek.
On the left you can see the before.
They are a cathedral style and we have been talking about painting them for the past two summers.
Some of the details: He planed and sanded the cathedral style doors down. He then built a new frame and added wainscoting. Then onto priming, painting, poly and replacing hardware.
He is getting close now and soon I can have a big kitchen reveal.
DH had eleven of his woodworking students take their projects to our county fair this year. This roll top desk was one of the top finishers. The kids get quite competitive and my DH has an extra prize for the top 3 places.
This lovely cabinet was the best of show. Dan says the kid who built this spent numerous hours before school, after school and in class. I think he did an amazing job!
And speaking of the fair, our little grand-daughter spent a lot of time with us there.
She sure loves it and not just the rides. In fact, I would say the small animals are her fave.
She did a lot of chicken holding at the fair! A friend has chickens and I mean a lot of chickens. Every breed you can imagine. She patiently let Addison pet and hold nearly everyone she had brought. This rooster was nearly as big as little Addison.
I have to say I was impressed with her bravery. She got pecked a few times but mostly just brushed it off.
There were a few very calm hens who would literally sit on her lap for as long as she was willing. Oh their feathers are so soft. This gal was just the sweetest bird! And the other little gal is awfully sweet too.
My little Arizona grand-baby celebrated birthday number 2!!
I got to see her open our presents on Skype.
And as you can see, she enjoyed her cake as well.
I will be heading out to see her in early October and of course I can't wait.
So there you go friends, a little bit of everything except the kitchen sink.
