(Can I just say, my bum isn't this big. My cardy has sticky-outy pockets creating an optical illusion of booty. I actually have the pert derriere of a 20 year old. Honest.)
Isn't it beautiful?
Things at home are not quite so beautiful...
A little electrical socket re-jigging was called for but we have a splashback up! Yay!
You'll have noticed that the surrounding kitchen isn't exactly selling it just yet.
The doors are off...
and slowly but surely, I'm amassing a pile of 'done' doors.
And there is mess EVERYWHERE.
I'm using this product...
Titebond melamine glue. Apparently it's the bees knees for gluing wood to melamine. I'm not even using panel pins. It gives you plenty of slippiness time so you can guide your joints into the right position. Then you clamp it and it dries fairly quickly. You can stop clamping after 30 mins. Which is good if you only have five clamps and a lot of doors.
They say, 'this is an exceptional glue that forms a bond stronger than the substrate itself.'
I think that means you'll pull the whole melamine front off the cupboard before you pull my planks off.
It's pretty butch. I like that in a glue.
I had a play with my ESP today. What peculiar stuff it is. I've even got a couple of coats of paint on the cupboard frame. Cooking is strictly forbidden until this section of cupboards above the cooker is completed. Hopefully I can pull that off before the weekend is over because I go on strike at weekends and force my husband to cook. I don't want to miss out on that!
