Time is flying, and things are moving along nicely with our kitchen remodel! I wanted to share these cute pics of our 10 year old son, Zach helping his dad put up our new shiplap wall. Craig has lots of experience putting up shiplap and has installed it in the dining room, living room, and foyer (and also all over Mouse House.) When planning the new kitchen design, I wasn’t sure if I wanted a backsplash or not. I’m not much of a backsplash girl and couldn’t find one I fell in love with and was willing to spend $$ on, so shiplap it was!
Installing a Shiplap Wall
Zach did awesome! And it’s always so good to see our kiddos help out with things around the house.
And here’s a pic of our new shiplap wall all finished and painted BM White Dove. I can’t decide what color to paint the patio door and window grills. What do you guys think? Black? or a warm light gray? With all the white, I think we need some contrast. I’m not liking the wood look and we’ll be replacing the windows as soon as it warms up a bit (the seals were failing and dripping brown goo down the sides – not a pretty look!)
And here’s the guys putting in our first cabinet! So exciting (that pantry cabinet was a monster and super heavy!) We went with Medallion cabinets from Menards in the Hawthorne doorstyle (which is a classic shaker style). The perimeter cabinets will be white (white icing) and the island will be a soft taupe gray (chai latte). I’ll be back soon with more details!
