"As Far As Tim Can Go......."

Todays post shows how far Tim has come along on refacing the kitchen cabinets, but unfortunately, he can go no further until he gets more of the Maple sheeting used for the larger areas of cabinet sides and backs (remember my earlier mention of some "issues" with the large sheets of Maple?).  He will be driving up to his supplier in La Crosse to get them, then has to do some cutting down to size for our job.  Target day for coming back is next Tuesday morning.

The bright side of this (gotta look for that ya know!) is I will now be able to bring the needed "cooking/washing up" things in from the front room and leave them "in" the kitchen for a few days and not have to run back and forth from kitchen to front room a dozen times in the evening and morning.

This means I won't have to cook in the bathroom again.  LOL  I thought it would be nice not to have a "fast meal" for a change and turned to my slow cooker yesterday for last nights meal.   ;)

Here is where we are with the refacing.......

Tim did re-enforce the back of the peninsula using 2 x 4's and plywood, too.

So, a few more days added to what was supposed to be a 3 or 4 day job.  Patience is a virtue, right?   ;) It will all be worth the wait in the end when the kitchen is finished.

Personally, I think it's fantastic that you didn't have to empty the cupboards!
