Chicken Dance Ranch - Project Update

We arrived at the CDR last Friday and were greeted by the sight of our finished kitchen. Ooh la la! It was awesome seeing the gorgeous hickory cabinet doors and drawer fronts installed. We've been looking at open shelving since last August (which was our choice). Now we can hide our stuff behind the doors. :)

On Saturday, it was time to install a different kind of door - of the interior type. We watched a You Tube video published by Home Depot to get a feel for the process. But we were extremely fortunate that our next door neighbor (and cabinetmaker extraordinaire), Robert, offered to guide us through one door installation. That was a HUGE help.

By the end of the day, all six doors were in. Yay!

On Sunday, I started to clear-coat the pine doors. Whew! Even with the windows open, it was extremely odorous. I finally stopped after door #4 and will finish the remaining two on our next visit.

Beeyutiful! Be careful of that finish stuff -- it can kill brain cells.
