Can you believe I am still waiting on my kitchen handles? It’s been two weeks!
Anyway that’s my little whinge. Don’t worry there’s plenty more where that came from but I won’t subject you to it all!
The kitchen has however, received a little love in the way of kitchen island shiplap. I wanted to lay them horizontally however, due to the fact we already have shiplap in the same area and it runs vertically I decided to match it. Whether this will haunt me forever – I’ll let you know!
It was a pretty easy task, again off to Bunnings (hooray) and picked up a humongous sheet of pre fab shiplap. The friendly staff cut it to the size I needed and home I went to install it.
First thing was to make sure the piece was cut to the correct size. I had two pieces that needed to be installed.
Slapped some commercial strength glue on the back, slid in into the perfect position. I used some spacers so that the lines ran straight, because there’s not one straight wall or floor in this house. Got it into position and tacked it into place permanently.
I no more gapped around the sides and now I just need to give it a paint. Still deciding what colour to paint it. Do I paint it the wall colour or the cupboard colour? Please let me know what you think. After I paint it I will attach the skirting and that’s another job DONE!
Full reveal if my handles ever turn up!!!!
Thanks for reading.
