I am SO close to being able to post an official kitchen reveal. I still need to put some pictures on the wall and cover the cushions on the bar stools, but I thought I would show you a few things that are finally finished.
The butcherblock countertop is sealed and installed. Mitch sealed it with waterlox, so he had to wait for the temperature and humidity to be just right. He ran into some problems, so of course it took much longer than we thought it would.
He also put new faces on the existing drawers so that they matched everything else.
He also built us an island after we determined that there really was not enough space for a table and 4 chairs in this space. He used an old piece of mahogany for the top that my dad salvaged from my grandparents house. It is a beautiful piece of wood and I was excited that we could put it to good use. Thanks Dad!! He spent more time sanding the piece wood than he did building the entire island, but I think it was worth the hard work.
I am hoping to show you everything next week even if it isn't quite perfect. I also need to show you a picture of the room we are tackling next. Ugh.
