Are you gellin?? I am gellin, General Finishes that is...
Well, we've been in our new to use house for three weeks now and we've come along way, IMO.
Not the best pics but I think it looks much better. We've gone through 7 quarts of Java gel stain and 1/2 gallon of poly so far. We didn't rub it but used a brush and are pleased with the results. We also stained all area's of the wood, not just the face. This is with three coats of stain and one coat of poly. We'll start on the doors this weekend.
We reworked the cabinet above the cooktop to allow for a mircrowave and enclosed the area around the fridge. Of course none of the molding matched so new crown had to be added.
We put a deposit down on some great looking White Delacutus and it should be installed later this month. We also have new SS appliances to include a Kenmore Elite induction cooktop and convection oven.
We also had to update the electrical and added a few outlets along the way. We would love can lights but our electrician stated it will be difficult because there's no telling where the plumbing is (2 story house) and it we may tear up the ceiling just to see so we're not sure what we're going to do...any suggestions?
Also, what color would you paint the walls and what flooring? There is wood in the foyer, formal living and dining room and we'll add wood to the rest of the downstairs later this year. We're thinking tile because we have dogs and they make a mess with their water bowl but what color?? Light or dark???
We have 3100 sqft of multiple layer wallpaper, 1986, to bring up to date...hopefully we won't go crazy before it's finished!!!
Before/after of foyer in case it helps recommending a color for the kitchen.
