It was a damp, dark and dreary weekend but....
Before I show you...let me explain
We are calling it the temporary solution...
Not the forever will I love it....
" I need something now until we get through the weddings and begin to work on our house again"
this will work.
Are you ready?
We installed a custom made wood countertop!
Yep...dear darling hubby the carpenter worked on it all week!
And guess what?
It only ended up costing us about $60.00!!!
Pretty good huh? I was amazed!
Now, the Mister still has some trim work to do....like actually anchoring it to the cabinet bases:)
(Something about letting it acclimate to the kitchen)
Then adding a return on the end pieces.
Something similar to what we did in our utility room.
I love the idea of it looking more like a furniture piece than a counter in a kitchen.
We are getting so close to completing our Kitchen...
The countertop had become quite the obstacle.
We were unable to have any of the plumbing done to the sink or dishwasher until it was installed.
With the weddings...it just wasn't in the budget until Spring.
While searching my favorite blogs and pin boards...I came across a possible "fix" to our situation.
One that at least could be altered to meet our needs.
After sharing my find with the Mister, hubby the carpenter, he agreed that this would get us through until we could get our soapstone counter.
I honestly must say...
I really like it!
I didn't think I would...
BUT I DO!
This gives us some time...allows us to get the plumbing ran now,
Then purchase the refrigerator in January when we return from our daughter's wedding.
Who knows...it just might stay longer than what we originally expected!
I might just decide it's "the permanent solution"
Just thought I would share!
I must head out to the cottage...today I am working on some window treatments! These...café curtains for the kitchen window from this wonderful gauzy linen.
They are nearly finished!
Then back to work on wedding details. ( I will share with you soon)
I will also share the cookie ornament directions soon for those of you who asked! Thank you! :)
Have a wonderful week~Many Blessings!
