I am terrible at this bloggy business, I should have put this up earlier! Cassity @ Remodelaholic wrote me and asked to feature my kitchen, so of course I was all "yesss". I started following Cassity's blog ages ago. I love her husband's carpentry work. :)
Since I got the Shopsmith working, I'm building a cabinet to go above the refrigerator now. Also, for future reference, the lower cabinets in my kitchen are BM Silver Mink, and yes I just glued beadboard on the inset panels of the existing cabinet doors, and then caulked the edges. Because I'm way too broke and time-constrained to do fancy moldings to hide the edges. :)

  1. Hopped over from Cassity's blog and am a new follower. Like you, I am a single mom trying to do it by myself with very little money. Loved your kitchen, but you know what I loved most? You are the first blogger I have found that doesn't have a husband doing half the project! :) Nice to know I am not the only one out there doing everything solo.

  2. we're not the only ones. There are a couple of others lol!
    I just got introduced to Nicole Curtis's show Rehab Addict, because I don't have cable I had to go watch some of it online. She's a single mom too and she doesn't have partners or investors -- awesome!

  3. Katy,
    Just love your kitchen! Will you be going with the same look at the beach cottage?

Welcome to my three ring circus. Cake? Tequila? Pardon me while I cut this lumber and yell at my kids for the 100th time --

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!

I don't do ads/affiliate marketing/ guest posting/reviews for free product, etc. The only exception to this would be if Bob Vila asks me to do something (anything). ;)
