Kitchen

I can’t believe it’s already more than a month since I last use my tools and worked on myDIY kitchen unit project! It feels like I didn’t do it. And if I did, I don’t know how I did it!

I’m surprised. Every day looking at it!

It’s time to move on! The cooktop is here! So I can continue with the project. First I need to get ready in my mind. Tune into it! Hope to be back on track soon! There will be a lot of coffee brakes…. I presume!

  1. Nothing like a piece arriving to spur you on. Is your ‘cooktop’ (hob) gas or electric? Look forward to seeing your amazing efforts as and when. Unfortunately I can do very little DIY now but I did manage to finish some tiling around the hob a couple of days ago. Now I have to do a run on the other side of the sink. That’s about my limit. I’m amazed what you manage to do with three little girls around the house.

    1. …and about cooktop! Gas! I hate electric! Now I have electric with 2 burner – crazy for such a big family. And they are certain size and won’t cook eventually. Also I had 3 burner gas in caravan – I was in heaven! All my life I cooked on gas burners and when moved here – they had electric 2 burner, crazy!

  2. I agree with you about gas for the hob – I have five burners on ours. The oven is electric (there are two, under the hob). I prefer this combination but am hopeless cooking on an electric hob.
    As for tiling, it’s not difficult just messy – not difficult if you have the proper ‘tool’. I’ll send you a picture of the one I’m using, lent to me by a friend. You also need the little cruciform spacers, easily found here, but I guess match sticks would do as well. I tried before just with a scribing tool and breaking over an edge – nightmare! I still have some to do.
    I can imagine how anxious you are to get yours finished; ours was complete when we moved into our flat but I changed the hob, and oven for a double, as I didn’t like those installed by the builder. And although there is a good splashback behind the hob the walls on either side were splashed all the time, particularly when frying. Now the tiles mean it’s very easy to clean.

    1. Yeh! That is why I wanted to put tiles on… And I already “know about tools… but still there is all kinds of “glue” that hold them in places. I’ll finish counter top and then will see… 🙂 I have to start.. but I just can’t … don’t know why 😀
