I haven't posted in quite a while. I've been using the unemployed time to both look for work and to work on the kitchen. It feels good to actually be making progress on the kitchen again. Here's the soffits being built.
Then sheetrocking the soffits and taping and final touchup of all the plaster. I thought we had the plaster as perfect as could be, but when the paint went on after the texturing several seams show up more than I thought they would.
This is the paint color Beth chose. For being a odd green color it surprising how great it looks. It's very cheary and pleasant. It also goes very well with everything; the cabinet stain, the white appliances, the countertop material, the satin nickel hardware. For being an apparently bold green it's quite nuetral and compatible.
The painting is now done and yesterday I tore up the green and white tile squares (they were quite easy to remove, the glue being so old and brittle) and began putting down the 1/4" plywood underlayment over the original fir flooring.
There is half a dozen details to finish before the cabinets actually go in, but we're getting close.
