Creating beautiful things… repurposing vintage & found items-transforming them & combining them to create beautiful new pieces. We just wanted to do a trial run on how the finish would hold up. I left puddles of water overnight and poured different stain-able products on it, to test it out. At 5.5 Years old, started playing first ever baseball season at JCC with six and seven year remodel

It’s hard to see the cracked glass in a photo, but it really pops against some of the cabinet doors I’ve seen. SMILES: started at 3 weeks during Easter weekend when YaYa talked to her. Cabinet color is ‘White Dove’ by Benjamin Moore Paints. Countertops: Carrera Marble through MGS Countertops BJ is the owner and he is great to work with.

Then we started with the total tear out of our old kitchen. It wasn’t as deep as the base cabinets, so we had to make it look that way. I kept the door front of the tiny cabinet that was replaced when I got the new microwave. Research shows me that many good cabinetmakers use butt-joined melamine with Confirmat screws and a plant-on remodel

It seems like I’m glazing over A LOT of work here but it was all really repetitive; rip, joint, cut, join, glue, clamp and sand… So I guess at this point we see some before and after pics. Finally, I see this new technology as a perfect way to document our family’s actions on a weekly basis through the remodel

Lauren, we didn’t build the house, we bought it used, hence the UGLY kitchen beforehand, so I have no idea how to see the plans. As far as Addie, unless she shows other signs or starts asking ANY questions, I plan to introduce to her at 8 years old. It makes me happy to see that beautiful woodwork above your sink.
