Our trip to PEI inspired me to finish a project. This cracked mirror has been waiting for reincarnation. Using clear epoxy and some stones, sea glass, and shells from PEI and the North Shore, we stabilized the glass and made it pretty enough for the patio. It’s a nice way to use our beach treasures, too!
Starting to fill in nicely!
I found an old copper grounding rod being used as a clothes rod in the basement. I cleaned it up, cut it to length, drilled and tapped the ends, and mounted it under the hood over the stove. I made a jig and shaped a bunch of hooks out of 6ga copper grounding wire. Looks pretty good, if I may say so myself!
So, the house was great, with a big problem. The kitchen was terrible. Things were in totally unusable locations. Nice finishes, but epic fail on the functionality. So, we’re redoing the kitchen. This will be our thrid kitchen project, and I think we finally know what we want!
But, at the moment, the kitchen has gone from looking like this:
To looking like this:
Whoops! I guess it’s bye-bye kitchen! I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
