This week's progress: hardwood floors were installed. Room is really starting to shape up, yet still looks like just a room. The cabinets were delivered today and will be installed next week. Expect next week's photos to begin to really look like a kitchen.
Hardwood planks installed, sanded, and one coat of polyurethane applied. After everything is installed (cabinets, island, appliances, counter tops, tile backsplash) and walls are painted…meaning EVERYTHING is completed… another coat of polyurethane will be applied. Then, we will really be done. ETA: another 3 weeks.
So, what is one to do while waiting for floors to dry? Go to the beach, of course.
Enjoyed a lovely day at Groton Long Point, visiting relatives where I finished reading Barbara Delinsky's latest book, Sweet Salt Air. A story about old friends spending a summer together, on an island off the coast of Maine. One a travel writer and the other a food blogger. They spend the summer working on a cookbook about island food. Really got me in the mood to get back to working on my own cookbook - a collection of family favorite recipes. Can't wait to have my kitchen completed!!!
