I did some boring stuff this weekend (besides the fair) so let’s focus on what my friend did:

Building on the parts of the cabinet I installed last week, my friend cut the boards for the upper part. Then we glued it all together and set it down.



I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m very excited that I cut that board. It fit. The first time. I may have mentioned that already. I can cut wood, people! This is exciting stuff.

For some reason, I did not get a picture of the cabinet on Monday morning. There is more to the top portion. It is all fleshed out and just needs the middle bar (for the doors) and the doors. It all needs to be painted as well. Do you know what this means? I almost have a cabinet.

One reason this project was not finished earlier is, I was scared. I thought, “There is no way we can build a cabinet that will look as good or better than what was there.” Just call me Thomas, because that baby is looking so sweet. ┬áThe wires are behind it, everything is flush. ┬áJust lovely. I actually even have a little bit of paint on it. We thought we could get to the ceiling so I cut in around the top of the cabinet.

I also sanded the dinette table and the refrigerator and freezer doors for painting.

I taped the bathroom for the white paint touch ups.

My friend focused on the cabinet. It was a big project.
