Redecorating 6

It's been a while since I have posted anything, but work has been proceeding, albeit at a slower pace as things have got busier at the farm. We have now tiled the kitchen and dining room floors, and I painted the switch and outlet plates, air conditioning registers, and baseboard heater to match the kitchen cabinets. We are really happy with the result!

Redecorating 5

The kitchen cabinets are finished at last! It took a full two weeks to do this job...

First, everything was cleared out, the countertops, doors and hardware removed, and the cabinets were sanded and primed, then painted inside and out.

The doors and drawer fronts were sanded down to bare wood before being given one coat of primer and three coats of paint (on each side).

This was my drying area - I needed to support nineteen doors and six drawer fronts.

Doors replaced and fitted with new pulls. I also painted the socket and switch plates to match the doors :)

A "before and after" composite of the sink area. This was before I fitted the new countertops, so it looks even better now :) I cant wait to get the new flooring for the kitchen and dining area!

Redecorating 2

Here's some more pictures of our "Room of Requirement"

It was really, really great to get the carpet out of there! Then everything had to be washed and/or scrubbed, the ceiling and walls painted, and the floor sealed.

When that was all done, I laid the laminate flooring. I made this video using a free time-lapse app for my iPhone. It took a while to make up its mind whether it was shooting in landscape or portrait format - probably because the camera was aimed at a downward angle. I supported the camera nine feet off the floor on a c-stand in the hall with two booms, so there'd be nothing on the floor that I was working on. The app shot at three frames per minute, and plays back at nine frames per second, so there's about three hours compressed in this vid.

Et, voila! The finished room :)

I wonder what we'll use it for now?
