Even though I'd painted the pantry door, we knew we'd have to reconfigure it because the bamboo floor and the subfloor would make it so the door wouldn't open or close. In other words, our floor is a good inch higher than it was when we moved in, so we've had to readjust some doors.
Scott took out the track and added handles to the front and hinges to the sides. However, the hinges make it so the doors won't close in the middle. As soon as he gets some time, he'll inset the hinges and that will close those gaps on the sides. Hopefully. We really like that it opens in the middle now.
Scott picked this up at Pier 1 last week. It's perfect and is actually the only piece of furniture we've bought since moving in here. I don't know if that bottom part is supposed to be a wine rack, and we own exactly 3 bottles of "nice" wine, but that's what I'm using it for. Also, you can see that we're missing some trim on that wall.
Don't mind the flyswatter. Or the shotgun shells.
Scott built this frame for the bar with some shallow shelving and it still needs to have some "facing" attached and painted. The reclaimed wood bar top should be delivered within the next few weeks. I don't think I've seen it yet, but it's on the way… I'm going to paint the shelving to match the island and add in a teal accent. Thoughts?
We couldn't finish the kitchen portion because we needed to account for whatever space the island/bar would take up. Also in the background of this picture, entryway to the door, will be a slate floor. Eventually.
This past weekend, I was working on the bathroom. It was a dark sea foam color which, honestly, is not that bad. But when you add in the fact that the master bedroom is the same color…and the master bedroom carpet is also seafoam green, I really, really hated it.
Green on green with a few orange stains. This room is next on my list for many reasons.
This was before I touched up the edges. I swear it looks neater now.
