« Part 2: Cabinets progressing Part 3 of Sandbar series Part 4: My tools have revolted! »

Today was a big day! I finally installed the cabinets for my first full kitchen today! Rolly, our finisher, painted them at the end of last week. I am still waiting for the drawer guides to be delivered, along with the lazy susan hardware and the knobs, pulls, and shelf pegs. Also, the blue paint on the island is taking FOREVER to cure, so I haven’t taken those doors or the panels that will go on the sides to the jobsite yet. Oh, and I still have toe kicks and crown molding to go on.

All of the parts for the bathroom vanities, linen closets, lockers, and bar boxes just got clear coated with lacquer today, so I will start building those boxes tomorrow. I have one week to build them, make the face frames, and build drawers! Its gonna be a long week. . .
