Next up: mantel continues and kitchen cupboard gutting

As my painting upstairs is caught up, now I can move on to..

Gutting the old kitchen cupboards! I was in the middle of packing, labeling and heaving when I stood up to finally take notice of what I just created around me.

More mess.

Ah, no big deal. It's only temporary. As my mom would say, this is a CLEAN mess.

In between all the kitchen excitement, I'll be working daily on the mantel until it's complete. The plan is to get the mantle and cultured stone in before the floors are installed, so on we push!

This is going to be a faux finish to recreate whatever toned wood grain is preferred. First the base coat goes on. Then many tones, getting darker as I go along will be added and rubbed off until the desired look is achieved. Bec, who's the most fabulous faux finisher I know, is guiding me with the colours and Dan is giving me pointers on the finishing work. It's pretty accurate to say, I'm in pretty good hands!
Vic snuck in to mud up the new wall that went in yesterday too.

Did I mention lately how much fun I'm actually having too??? This is gonna be an awesome weekend!
