I went about cleaning the cabinets and drawers in the hall bathroom. They have been well used over the years and the finish is quite worn in areas. The cabinets in the bathroom are made of the same 3/4 inch pecan plywood as the kitchen cabinets with the same ambered finish. What I learned through the cleaning is that the varnish is readily removed, meaning we can likely refinish the kitchen cabinets without damaging the wood. In the bathroom I added new Amerock knobs that mimic the knobs that were original to the house.
The most transformative addition to our home this week is my new floating bench. Designed to be an extension of the hearth in the living room, it elongates and emphasizes the horizontal lines. Handcrafted by Daniel Moulder of Moulder and Craft in Portland, Oregon, it is made from solid cherry and is absolutely gorgeous.
You'll notice that I haven't posted any pictures of the complete living room. We have yet to paint it. Once it's painted the room will be complete and I'll post before and after pictures!
