We painted our kitchen. The holiday project!

Not the whole thing, just the cupboards. They were this beautiful wood grain laminate with wooden knobs for handles. Check it out now! This little makeover only set us back $220 including the handles! We still need to figure out:

Floors: currently carpet (awesome if you drop stuff and warm in winter, but a bit dirty). Looking at coloured cork tiles.

Benchtop: currently mustard coloured laminate. Supposedly laminate paint doesn’t work well in benches so maybe relaminating.

Splashback: beautiful ’70’s style tiles – need changing.

Fake brick walls: Had a plastered come to quote on gyprocking the lot including squaring off the lovely archway in the middle – reasonable but not yet.

Oven: I think we’ll go with a nice plain white one which will fit in the existing gap.


Renovations Yesterday

July 30, 2007

Yesterday I made the fishing touches to our latest reno project in the Toose Hoose – The Doors. We’ve recently replaced the lovely creamy yellow internal doors with their hand painted ceramic doorknobs with something a little more our taste (the bathroom and toilet now have locks on them too!). I also painstakingly replaced the yellow glass panels in the front door with a less garish option. Yesterday I thought I’d get into a little recycling and while I was at it maintain some memories by reusing the beautiful ceramic doorhandles. I put one on the workshop door and a couple on a cupboard in the workshop (it now has a fenimen side).

Just like the real world version, Toose Hoose Online has undergone a bit of a renovation.

This is not the Toose Hoose – I think we would’ve given up pretty early on if it was!!!
