Wednesdays Works-in-Progress (WIP’S)
OAK PARK built-in cabinets installed!
The custom cabinetry is now in place! Its bright white color against Benjamin Moore’s Smokey Taupe on the walls, looks crisp and bright. Now there is plenty of storage and space for display. The benches will be especially useful during the frequent large family gatherings. The backs of the bookcases are painted a soft blue which will be the accent color throughout the living room and dining room.
Caesarstone Quartz in Himalayan Moon
While keeping the space open and airy, a long bench separates the living room from the dining room . Facing the dining room are cabinets with pullout shelves, which are perfect for storing serving platters, placemats and tablecloths. The quartz top allows this surface to act as a buffet for serving meals. The fireplace surround and hearth in the same quartz unifies the two areas.Items left to do include installing the door pulls and hanging the TV. After all the construction is complete, the new furniture and bench cushions will be delivered– just in time for a birthday party the family is hosting at the end of the month!
WEST LOOP kitchen gets backsplash!
The backsplash is finished–it’s the perfect complement to the quartz countertops. In the banquette niche the pendant light is being installed. Next up is painting the great room and kitchen.
