I wish pictures could do the weather in the Northwest justice, but they just simply CAN'T. This weekend was so rainy that we had to limit our work day to running errands... but very important errands at that.
Originally, we were hoping to never go to Home Depot, but unfortunately it is IMPOSSIBLE to get everything donated, so we made a trip and got some much needed supplies.
The large white sheets are FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) that we are going to be putting on the majority of the walls. It is going to make all the surfaces smooth and easy to clean, and also keep us up to code with the health department. Once this is up, the kitchen transformation can begin.
One of the things I DISLIKE on the cart is our door. It's little and janky and not very secure. Because it's so narrow, it is also impossible to get any large appliances through (like a refrigerator) so we are going to build a new one. I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of cussing on this day...eeekk.
We stopped by the Rebuilding Center to pick up a new door...and the price was right for our budget!
$1 we can handle.
And this is what we came home with.
I might be setting myself up for failure with this post, but I'm confident we can figure out how to get this new door on the cart. We'll have to take out the existing door, build a frame for the new door, cut the new door to fit, mount it and make sure the knobs and locks work, and then taaaa-daaaaa--new door! (If any of you have ever done something like this or have any advice, please post!)
I hope the rain lets up a bit...I'm not joking when I say we were DRENCHED after unloading the truck.
Thumbs down to the downpour.
Thumbs up to getting some work done this week!!
