DIY: Oven & Hob section / Part 3

Forgot to share my progress on DIY Kitchen unit project. So here it is! Will you believe me if I’d say that I’m tired of a messy unfinished kitchen! But there’s nothing to blame but me :). And that’s hard… It’s easier to blame husband or worker than “GO&DO” by yourself! Isn’t it?! ­čÖé SO, I will do it by […]

DIY: Oven & Hob section / Part 2

Two days ago I shared how hard it was to get going on this oven & hob section. Now I’m up and running :). I measured, I cut and glued all the boards together to make a countertop for this section a few days ago. Yesterday┬áit was sanding & oiling. Is there anyone who likes to be covered in man […]

DIY: Oven & Hob section

It was so hard to get this project going again. I dropped it cause I didn’t know if I’ll get the hob delivered or not also the cut in size was important. I waited for almost 3 months for my hob to be delivered! No, no… I didn’t order something fancy in fact these hobs are so popular that sells […]

DIY: Sink & Dishwasher section

Sink and dishwasher section. What can I say…. It’s something that still isn’t finished and won’t be until I didn’t make next section and decide where I’ll store pots and pans and strainers. Where I’ll put dishes and how to hide gas cylinder for the cooktop. That’s ok. Baby steps! The mornings are so cold here in Latvia and I’m […]

All covered in oil

And YES! It’s final – I decide to finish my baking corner (and the rest of kitchen units I’m working on right now) with oil! Oil finish…┬áAs you know I already move into my brand new baking corner (I actually never had one before). And now it’s time to get everything out and get the baking corner out from the […]

DIY: Second section (Sink & Dishwasher)

And… the sun is shining and the weather is sweet again.. and I’m continuing with my kitchen unit making! I made the first part which was the baking corner. It turned out beautiful and is exactly what I need! I’m still can’t decide whether it will be covered in oil or other finish… So… Now it’s time to make the […]

DIY: Baking Corner

I’m so happy I’m gonna cry! I HAVE THE BAKING CORNER! And the best part – I made it! I made it from boards – few new and few old, few┬áplaned and few unplaned covered in splinters. ┬áI did it and I’m proud! Indeed! I can’t express my satisfaction! I had an old shelf and at first, I wanted to […]

Kitchen units in making

I spent the whole day cutting the boards I got a few days ago. Why? I’m the ambitious young mom of 3 and I want to make my own kitchen units out of real wood. I know it’s something crazy, cause wood doesn’t like water. But. I already made a blueprint ­čÖé I’m not aiming for something glamorous or complicated.┬áSomething […]
