What a Difference a Day Makes.

Beautiful Portland.

No Rain
No Wind
Above 50 Degrees outside

This is our back wall with just insulation and hardboard.

This is the back wall after, with FRP.

All of our sinks will go in the back of the cart.  We put up FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) because it is waterproof, easy to clean/wipe down, and brings the cart up to code.  FRP will cover most of the interior and will give the cart a facelift for sure.  To apply this, you have to sand the surface, apply mud/glue/adhesive to the inside of the FRP, let it dry for 30-45 mins, apply to the wall, then trim the entire thing with plastic seams.  (I'm getting quite good at all this random stuff...)

We got the front counter in for the service window.'s all coming together!  The counters were tough because the front of the cart is rounded.  Trav did a great job of figuring out the best way to cut them so they would sit flush against the wall.  Two counters up and this thing is starting to look like a food cart!

Our cabinets were this lovely peachy-cream color before I painted them "Winter White." 

We got the cabinets cut, sanded and painted just the way we wanted 'em, and the improvement was immediate.  Travis teases me that I lack vision because I have a hard time seeing beyond the dirt and grime (and sometimes the peachy cream exterior...), but I'm getting better!  I love what a little paint and new knobs can do...CHECK IT OUT.

The best thing about these cabinets, is that they're FUNCTIONAL.  The counters fit nicely, and they give us some much needed storage.

It's all happening....
