It’s looking like it’ll be a big week for my kitchen this week! I’ve found a cabinet (something I already had!) for the island and my new hardware should be here any day.
To start though, I put up the trim to cover the gaps around my window and under my cabinets.
Remember what it was like before? While it’s not done, it’s better:
Obviously I still need to clean up and caulk around the new trim but after living with it a few days, I think I’m going to leave all the trim around the cabinets natural. It’s not a perfect match to the cabinet finish but I think it’ll blend in better than white.
The trim under the cabinets really just disappears so I think some caulk will finish this off.
The trim under the window, however, will get painted white. Really, I should have painted it white before I put it up, but I didn’t so I’m thinking painting this little strip will be the most time consuming part of this whole project.
I have paintable white caulk for the trim under the window but I still need to find some for around the other trim. Clear? Tan? I haven’t decided yet but I’ll surely keep you updated!
