Renovation project - The countdown clock is ticking away
Today is such a momentous day, the bath panel is fitted to the bath and this can mean only one thing, the tools are coming downstairs, we have virtually finished the first floor (there are just a couple of tidy up bits to do and another big clean) but we no longer need the tools upstairs.
It’s time to finish off the jobs downstairs and first in line is the kitchen; we have a gap between the cooker and the sink unit. Now this is only a small gap not big enough for a cupboard but too big to be left with nothing there.
We had thought about this before and had considered blocking it off with a piece of wood but John suggested building a wine rack, this is simple to make and we have enough pieces of wood available, we also have a bit of spare work top to finish off the top. The big question is, if we fill it up with wine how long will it last?????
John also refits the tap, it had been fitted temporarily and wobbled but now it is in place, it actually takes some time to get used to it not moving but it is so much better.
John also has some wooden trim to edge the splash backs in, but it doesn’t quite cover the screws holding the splash backs in place, which means that another trip to the shops is required!
John has plastered the patches of wall and boxed in the pipe work, it is little jobs like this that make a world of difference, we could not move the pipe work, so were left with no option but to box them in. Once painted they just blend in with the wall and you really do not notice them.
Final job today is to give the room a coat of paint. Just reading this I feel knackered but it’s a late finish and an early night, the next few weeks are going to be like this, that countdown clock is ticking away!!!
