Saturday is always a great day for me where getting stuff done is concerned. Maybe it is because I send all week at work wishing I was home doing those things and so have all sorts of energy to put into the things I thought about all week.
The big project for me this weekend has been the floor in the kitchen. I started my Saturday by getting things tidied away and getting laundry and dishes done. After a trip into town to get potting soil and sea soil, I got to it in the kitchen.
First things first – get everything out of the kitchen
Then set up my Workmate and get my tools together.
then…. Well… here is what I managed to accomplish on Saturday:
|Pretty simple, really. This is all you need.|
Except spacers. Spacers would have been useful.
|So all you do is score the plank with the exacto knife|
|And then bend it until it snaps|
|If, however, you don;t score it properly|
You will need Kleenex and Band-aids...
|Two rows in - right away I had to cut around a heat vent|
|Almost to the half-way point|
|Half way point reached - time to move the|
crap to the other side of the kitchen
|Tools and supplies moved, time for a walk|
|This was where I started to make measuring/cutting|
mistakes - time to quit for the night
|This was a miss-cut piece for around the heat vent|
I swore. A lot.
|Re-cut and installed around the vent|
|Looks good, right?|
|Time for trim and mouldings.|
|All back in place and now it is time|
to get ready for the week ahead.
With love across the waters…
