As you probably know from my last post, we took a little break to go to Alabama to see my new nieces this past weekend, so we didn’t get much accomplished since last week’s update for The Cedar Loft.
I did get the bead board that covers the kitchen bar area painted and distressed and Jason installed it. This is a photo of the living room side. Oh, and you can see the painted door to the side. That's the color all the doors will be. It's called Brown Moss, but it's actually more green(ish). I love the way the two colors compliment one another. It actually even looks better in person than it does in the photo.
The bead board is also on the backsplash area next to the bar on the kitchen side. In the background of this photo below, you can actually see more of the true color of the door.
The wood countertops will separate the red of the cabinets and the red of the backsplash, adding contrast, but we’re still working on them. Here's a sneak peek:
Speaking of the countertops, they have certainly challenged us! Jason finally got them cut to fit properly. He has sanded and re-sanded. I’ve stained them and now we’re applying the layers of polyurethane, which is important for the protection of the wood since they will get lots of use. This is just time consuming. I’m not very patient either. :) There’s too much waiting in between staining and adding polyurethane and waiting for it all to dry! However, we hope to have the last layer of polyurethane applied and begin installing the countertops tonight.
I had hoped to have a picture this week of the bar countertop in place (it will sit right on top of the red bead board panel of the bar in the first photo above), but the best I can do is show you a picture of it on the sawhorses this week.
And that is where we are this week with progress on The Cedar Loft. Jason is off this Friday, so we hope to accomplish much: painting the doors (bathroom, laundry room and closets), begin hanging doors, getting the toilet in, and installing the countertops (which I think will make a BIG difference).
But…..we shall see! Sometimes our planning exceeds our follow through. :)
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful day! :)
