We are in the home stretch! This last week the cabinets went in and what a huge difference it made. Even without countertops this space is totally transformed. Matt’s kitchen is much brighter and has created a dramatic change in the home. This week we will be doing the finishing touches, installing doors, hardware, etc. before the kitchen is templated for countertops. Stuart’s team will be coming back in to finish as well. Cleaning the flooring, moving a light switch while keeping the existing electrical. This will provide a plug for the inside of the hutch, allowing for Matt to plug in small appliances such as mixers, crock pots, etc. Stuart will also be installing the new window resting between the two new herb shelves. We are so close to finishing this amazing journey! We can’t wait to show everyone the end results.
By this time next week the Hero project will officially be complete! This has been an amazing experience and we were very fortunate to be able to make it happen (with lot’s of help of course). This week alone our install team completed the installation of the new cabinetry and hardware. Additionally Conway Tile templated the kitchen for the new Vittoria White Quartz provided by Arizona Tile! The team at Southwest Kitchen visited Chaotes home to begin the creation of the DIY addition to the kitchen. The side panel of the refrigerator is being converted into a chalkboard/magnetic wall! Something both fun and functional for our Hero with a busy schedule. This side panel will be three tiered upon completion. The top will have a galvanized steel sheet attached, providing a magnetic board. The middle will be a chalkboard, and the bottom will stay as the gorgeous Hickory wood with Dusk stain. The chalkboard process was simple and easier than we expected. We started by measuring out the correct spacing and using painters tape to give us guidelines of where the 3in fillers will create the finished and framed look. We then used fine sand paper to sand out the grain making the panel even. After acclimating the paint we used a roller to evenly distribute the chalkboard paint. Not to mention we had a cute audience consisting of Chaotes very curious cats!
