The Cedar Loft - Update #6

Finally……progress you can really see!

The flooring company guys came out late Friday afternoon to prep the floor, then were back out late Saturday morning and finished with it by 4:30 Saturday! I love it! It’s even prettier than the sample they gave us (that we used to make the decision on the flooring).

There’s much more detail. For vinyl flooring, I think it really does look like a rustic pine wood floor.

Despite the wind Saturday, we managed to get the cabinets painted, distressed, and a coat of polyurethane added. I can’t believe I'm actually going to have red kitchen cabinets somewhere! Remember how Jason likes his wood? Well, he gave in and gave me my red cabinets in the loft. My red cabinets make me really happy! :) Oh, and I did change my mind on the red…..the new color is Valspar – Heirloom Red. It seemed to match the red table and chairs that we bought at the Antique Gallery a little better.

Here’s a little peak at the cabinets along with the stove and dishwasher. We’ve just begun getting them situated in their spot in the kitchen.

I’ve still been staining lots of trim, but still have more to go! Actually, I think I'm only half way there!  Hopefully later this week, Jason will begin hanging some of the trim. We’ll be working on the wood countertops and I hope to talk him into hanging the microwave vent-a-hood, so I can make a decision on whether I want a wall cabinet or just open shelves.

And that’s where we are.....what we’ve been up to this past week on The Cedar Loft. :) Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly appreciate your visit!  :)


And by the way, thanks to those that left input on how you blog. I found that very interesting! I guess I AM a little strange! Lol! 

Everything is coming along nicely Tammy. I'm glad you won out with the red cabinets by the way! I'm a red person myself. Still don't have red cabinets in my kitchen but one day I may get lucky. I think the red looks awesome with all the wood going on, from the picture it just made it all "pop" with that punch of color. Looks like it will be an awesome place to gather!
Have a beautiful day~

Okay Tammy, remind me again the date we set up for me to move into your loft!!! It is shaping up nicely. I love the floor and the cabinet color you picked. I think the open shelf concept is a wonderful idea. It would make the kitchen space look bigger.
Can't wait to see more progress. Keep up the good work.
Blessings, AMY

I love the floor, too! It looks so real, like you said--especially in the pictures! It all looks so warm and cozy in there!

You're not strange...I thought it was interesting, too! Or maybe we're just strange together... :D

I love you! 8!

God bless you!
Joy :D

OK ---Love the kitchen cabinets. Will have to go look for the red at our store. How did you distress them? That way I can steal (I mean borrow) that idea as well. Love the vinal floor!!!

Thanks for showing the updates. I love the flooring and the red cabinets make everything pop right out.
Will be waiting to see the finished project.

It looks so beautiful! I love it! I would never believe that's vinyl flooring. The red cabinets are fantastic.

The floors look amazing. I would have never known that it wasn't wood if you hadn't of said it was vinyl. The cabinets look great also. It's coming together so nicely.

You all are doing such a beautiful job, I just can't believe it!
