I hate this stuff. You have to figure out the overlaps while trying not to cut on a bead. It splinters. But it's getting done. I started on the window wall.
Then I did the small piece next to the ugly basement door. I'm done for today with two pieces cut and installed below the cabinets next to the stove. One more piece on the other side will be done tomorrow.
The molding is MDF. Everything will be painted gloss ultra white to match the cabinets. There will be some light sanding and putty to fill a few unavoidable cracks.
It's starting to tie the kitchen together as a whole.
Tomorrow, I'll work on the window sill that I need to replace and the beadboard below it.
There's an electrical outlet that's causing problems between the window and fridge. The outlet won't fit because of the conduit adapter.
There's also the matter of what to do next to the bohemoth cabinet. The door won't open if I install the 3/4" molding. I'm still trying to decide on a fix for this. It may involve some trickery to fool the eye.
I've also got to decide on a backsplash behind the stove. I may use laminate if I have enough. I'd like to use something else, but Carla hasn't delivered yet. Until I find a cheap microwave, I'm thinking of installing a self venting hood. I rarely use the current microwave. I may put it in a cabinet. I hate counter top clutter.
It's 81 degrees and sunny. The humidity hasn't dropped much today. Maybe that cold front will come in tonight. A customer from the store dropped by for a visit today. For two hours she ooh'd and ahh'd over the yard. I apologized for the state of the perennial bed and explained it was much nicer in June. I gave her seeds. She was late for an appointment with the IRS by the time she left. She said I'm the only gardener she's met here. Her word, not mine.
