Although we have tried to keep our primary focus on our kitchen,
we usually have many projects going on at the same time.
We, also, try to fit our projects in between church activities,
school activities, kid activities, volunteer activities, family time
and, of course, holidays. Therefore, our time is limited.
So, we try to take full advantage of any spare time
we might have to get our projects done.
Even if it means holding a flashlight over
the wood so Chris can see to cut. :)
Chris and Brice
built the counters.
And Chris cut and drilled holes for the braces.
Then Chris and I alternated between sanding,
(We sealed the top and bottom of the counter tops.)
We used multiple coats of stain
to achieve a darker color
and sanded in between each coat.
Although I wanted the surface to be smooth,
I still wanted the wood grain and knot holes
to show through, so we chose not to fill them in
and leaving the wood look a little rustic.
They turned out beautiful!
Another easy, economical, and marvelous idea
that fits our needs as well as our wishes.
We are so pleased!
