So as part of my kitchen renovation, I build a kitchen shelving unit for at the end of my counter beside the dishwasher. It is only 8 1/2 inches wide, but I think it will add to the over all effect of the whole kitchen. It also gives you a sneak peek at what my base cabinets are going to look like… 😉
I decide to leave the bottom open as it is also where I have Little’s food and water dishes.
I mostly just used scraps for this project…
I glued and nailed them together
And then from there I added the bead board to the back and one side.
I then added some white melamine veneer to the edges to clean it up a bit, and painted it.
After that I added the boards to the side to finish it off
I found it much easier to paint the bead board before adding the outer edge and painting it instead of trying to do it all at once.
I finished up the painting and brought it into the house.
At this point I had thought I was finished, well at least until I started writing this post and editing the pictures…
Do you see it? The piece that stands out like a sore thumb to me… Do you see the join? I do. And now that I see it, I have to fix it or it’s just going to continue to stand out to me 🙁
So I cut another piece of the pre-glued melamine veneer that I had used for the edges and ironed it down the line
and then I painted it.
So what do you think?
I’m loving the fact that I’m one more step closer to the finished product, my kitchen 😀
