A friend asked if I could help her with changing the sliding glass doors in her ensuite bathroom. Once I got there, she decided to also change out the vinyl flooring and install a new toilet. We managed to complete everything in a day and it looks gret. Below are before and after pictures.
The decision to replace a dusty rose colored pile carpet with gunstock colored solid oak hardwood flooring was an easy one. Doing the work was a little bit more labour intensive but the result was beautiful.
I totally gutted the kitchen and replaced it with the set shown below. This was a fairly straight forward job. The hardwood flooring went in later. The cabients are made from Newfoundland Birch, with a natural finish. The cabinet system was part of a kitchen manufacturer’s store display and I purchased it at a 60% discount price. Luckily all the parts fit with two base cabinets left over.
The original step came straight out from the front doorway. I decided it would be interesting to turn the step to line up with the exiting flower beds. Posts were installed with built in lighting and railing with a double top rail and alternating vertical panels.
A neighbor had a whole new kitchen installed and they had the foresight to disassemble the previous kitchen cabinets piece by piece. The old set was solid oak and was too good to waste. So they wanted cupboards in the laundry room. The pictures above are the result. The only piece of material I bought was a sheet of 3/4 oak plywood for the storage cabinet. Its amazing what can be done wha little bit of recycled lumber.
