We made some pretty good progress in the kitchen this week. We ordered an oven, microwave, and dishwasher. It is being delivered today. Can you believe it?
Mitch and his dad built the cabinet that will house the wall oven and microwave. So once the oven is delivered, we will have a place to put it.
This weekend we will be priming and painting. Then hopefully (fingers crossed) we will install the oven. Wouldn't it be great to start the new year with an oven? It's not too much to ask is it?
I am already dreaming of all of the things that I want to make in my new oven. I never thought I would be this excited about an oven.
Mitch also built a bench for the mudroom, so that we have a place to put our shoes. The plan is to put a shelf above it with hooks for coats and backpacks.
I need to find baskets to fit in each of the cubbies, so there are not shoes everywhere.
The next step is going to be to build out the cabinets on the other side of the fridge. We are planning on putting a butcherblock countertop on that section. It will probably take awhile to get those cabinets built, but once that side is finished we will work on the other side of the room. I am hoping that we can bring in our contractor to help with the opening between the two rooms and the drywall, but who knows Mitch might decide to take it on himself.
I hope everyone has a safe New Year's Eve.
