Happy Halloween! I still have more to cover on this whole kitchen update, but sometimes all you need are a few quick photos to remind yourself that things are heading in the right direction. Since these photos were taken in the dark, I figured it was decent timing for today’s (attempt at spooky?) post.
My dad, uncle, and his brother were over at the house for the last day to install the sink, faucet, and countertop while I was in class. I don’t have the opportunity to get into all of the other details yet, but it’s time I showed you a glimpse of all of the progress made in that single week:
When I came home from class & settled into bed last weekend, I took a quick snapshot from my phone. If I squint just right, I can almost see my new kitchen.
Just to give myself a little boost that night, I also test-drove the mineral oil/beeswax mixture that I’m using to treat the new walnut butcher block countertops. I do these kinds of things to keep my motivation to finish projects. And they are effective. Swoon. If I wasn’t 100% sure before this point, I’m damn sure I made the right choice now.
I have a little more sanding and painting to do, but I’m on my way!
What have you been using to motivate yourself lately? Do you test-drive swatches to feel like you’re making progress?
