I had my weekend all planned out. I mean, sort of. In the general, I was going to finish prepping the backsplash and build/ hang the final cabinet door. But then once I started with one thing, I couldn’t stop. And then there was something else that I had to do. So basically, what I intended to be a really focused, goal-oriented weekend ended up being an ADD-fest. Yaaaay.
During the week, I prepped the final cabinet door by sanding and wood-filler-ing it, and re-sanding. I painted a couple coats of off-white (which is the interior color of the cabinets and a paintfail by me), and a couple coats of the exterior cabinet paint. When I finally decided to emerge from my cocoon of Sunday morning hibernation, I was ready to go! Drill a couple holes, put some hinges on the thing and ta-daaaaa! Cabinet door! Right? No? Bummer.
Oh, and the door looks unlike any of the other doors in the rest of the kitchen (aka, no wood trim detailing.) I JUST WANTED TO FINISH IT.
So I decided that instead of finishing it because I ran out of lattice trim, I should switch and paint one of the cabinet interiors. But then I noticed that the front of the shelf had a spot that needed some wood filler. So I fixed that, too.
So basically, we took about 4 steps backwards in the whole “finishing the kitchen” thing.
But at least it will be 100% complete, instead of 90% complete, with a bunch of little things that need repairing. RIGHT?
And the backsplash is sitting in our garage. Taunting us.
