I'm a frightful blogger, I've discovered! I've been planning to update you all much sooner than this but its been just under 4 months since Lou came home and life hasn't stopped since then! Today's blog is all about our March/April project, which I loved seeing take shape but which also consumed many after work hours for Lou, who thrived on it!
|Lou at home in his little workshop ie. garage :) Nothing more attractive than a hardworking man!|
|The humble beginnings of a cabinet|
|This set was designed for over the stovetop area.|
|The beautiful inset hinges he measured and fitted to a "T"!|
He built the drawers for the bases in New Jersey as well as some of the other more finicky pieces.
The old kitchen had been in much use for the past 24 years and the cabinets were a particle board combination, so the years had not been kind to them!
|Two of the three amigos-Lou and his cousin Mark, also known as "General" in the COD world. :)|
|Working hard as always!|
|Lou and Jess intent on the leveling process.|
|A slight family resemblance!|
|Still in the process, just need a little paint and some pretty knobs/pulls!|
We're so very pleased with how it all turned out! Lou did mention that he might lay off cabinets for a while on our drive home to Kentucky, for at least a month anyways! Just in case you might think this is all we did, we did manage to spend our Easter Sunday with a wonderful morning sermon and worship followed by lunch.......
|Easter Bonnets and Best!|
All in all, it was a great time....Lou and I even squeezed in a trip to Atlantic City, NJ for what everyone goes to Atlantic City for, right? I mean thrift store shopping, of course! Wow, we (Lou and I) were in awe, managing to fall into a Salvation Army full of treasures-cashmeres and brand names. We walked out $350 invested in clothing for our Ebay site, an incredible 2 hours' worth of rack searching! Speaking of which, I'd better finish this up and begin listing! Hope you all enjoyed our latest project and I'll be blogging again soon with pictures of my friend Whitney's lovely wedding in Virginia...or with pictures of our new painting scheme for our home here in Vine Grove, Kentucky! Until then, may the Lord bless you all in life's little adventures!
