DONE! I made my kitchen! Thank you for being with me on this journey! Now.. I need to clean everything (whole house) to take a picture of my NEW & DIY kitchen! Wait! I need to sit down and think about it all… how did it happen!? Be patient it might take a while! Cause I’m planning to buy a […]

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 it 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

That Kitchen Sink

Remember that kitchen sink, that came from manufacturers warehouse without a hole for tap? Guess what! We found the “hole maker” and now it’s ready to be installed in the place… BUT. There is one BUT. We lost the manual and there are lots of different pipes we need to connect. I made that “art installation that supposes to drain” […]

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 planed and few unplaned covered in splinters.  I did it and I’m proud! Indeed! I can’t express my satisfaction! I had an old shelf and at first, I wanted to […]

First part: Baking corner

I decided to divide all the DIY kitchen unit project into smaller units. There will be a baking corner, sink & dishwasher section, cooktop & oven section and all for dining section. First will be the baking corner. I needed extra mixing & product storage space. I already know that I will love it! I decide to start with that, […]

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 🙂 I’m not aiming for something glamorous or complicated. Something […]
