Here is where my kitchen stands today.
My walls are not straight and the Ikea Pragel counters cannot be scribed. I’m left with gaps that I have to find a solution for before I can tile. The wall behind the stove is an easy fix, thanks to clever thinking by my bff, I am going to put up 1/4” plywood the entire width and height, that eliminates that gap. The longer wall, where the gap is more gradual may involve removing the drywall, installing new drywall and shimming it to meet the counters. Not a pleasant task, but it may be the only way to go.
I did pick out new tile though, and I love it. A little bit of putting the cart before the horse, but like anyone that enjoys home decor, you are drawn to the pretty bits that make it sparkle.
I got the tile for a steal of a deal at $3.50 each.
I needed a new door for my pantry and only a bifold would work. A panelled door was not what I wanted, so I bought a plain Masonite door and added the same trim as I did on the cabinets.
not painted yet
This was the biggest door I could get that was not custom order (read, big bucks) so I had to add wood to the top of the frame
The frame is so out of whack that I had to add a shims on one side to bring it to level. The frame is also out of plumb, but trim moulding will hide the majority of the sins.
It will be painted the same white as the cabinets and a matching handle will be installed.
I am still way ahead of my August deadline, so having to take a couple of weeks off while my wrists felt better is a-ok.
Enjoy your Sunday.
