Hope everybody is having a good weekend. I had Friday off but I was lazy and went and got my nails done instead.
Yesterday and today I worked on my built ins some more. I did my bricks for the hearth and the back of the fireplace. I did inch long bricks and about a third of an inch wide because I wanted them to look a little more substantial than regular bricks.
I didn't want to paint the bricks until I had the wood stained so I got that done today. I used the Rustolium American Walnut stain and so far I like how it looks. Once everything is dry I'll add some poly and then work on the bricks.
I'm not sure about the color for the bricks, but I'm thinking a brownish red?
But here's what I've got so far.
I did the window seat built in as well.
My only issue with the stain is that the bronze handles and knobs I bought might blend right in.
The other project I worked on is a cabinet for my farmhouse sink. I love this style sink and I can't have one in my real house. But I have to make a custom cabinet in order to use it. It's a little rough right now but it'll work once I get it polished up.
And that is the extent of my accomplishments for the weekend.
I also got to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Patriots Day. My husband also brought home Rogue One but we haven't watched it yet. From what I've heard of the movie I'm not sure I want to.
Hope everyone else is having a great weekend. Talk to you soon!
