These are the Brimnes cabinets I bought for my studio. I love them so much I bought 4 more for my Living Room!
They are soooo heavy I decided to pay the $50 shipping fee. They deliver and will bring the shipment into 1 room of your house. Worth every penny!
So this is all in anticipation for removing that window and having a fireplace put in!!!! I soooo hope I can get it accomplished before December – It’s my turn to host our Family Christmas! More details coming (probably next couple of months). Oh the box still sitting there belongs to my daughter. Here’s the IKEA link – get them when you can – they ALWAYS sell out as soon as they come back in stock: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/brimnes-cabinet-with-doors-white-40300662/
When I moved in almost 7 years ago, I was moving a sprinkler every 15 minutes because my house has NEVER had a sprinkler system. I gave up moving the hose a couple of years ago. I also have never had any decent water pressure. So to make a long story shorter – I found a well guy – he was able to add enough air to my water pressure tank so it could service a sprinkler system.
Ignore the paint falling off the house – that’s another story, lol. This is the front of the house before calling E & M Landscaping in Brighton. Efren and his crew seriously had their work cut out for them. They removed all the dirt/grass, weeds, dead 6′ trees and dug a brand new sprinkler and drip system!
My attempt to start a border and use mulch.
This was day 2.
This is the side yard.
Side yard complete!
E & M Landscaping did an awesome job!!! New sod, new border, new rock, and new sprinkler system! I’m beyond happy with their work & great communication. It’s just soooooo nice, I feel like it looks like a home!
Side note – a front yard fence was not in the budget, so I purchased new black vinyl chicken wire and spray painted the green stakes – looks sooooo much better! Thanks for the idea Sherry!!
I’ve had a little help – Thanks Christa for coming over and holding up some boards for me & Thanks to my son Jason who helped me cut around the rafters. The last boards go up against the center 2×6 and it a perfect world I would just rip them BUTTTTT of course the measurements are alllllll not the same. It gave me a headache so I’m taking a break, LOL. The good news is that now I think I can have the A/C mini split put in!!
My first attempt at IKEA furniture. I purchased 2 of their Brimnes cabinets and I love them!! They were actually not hard to put together. I just opened that big intimidating bag of bits and pieces and laid them all out. The pictures were easy to follow and I’m really impressed. I see more of these cabinets in my future . . .
I decided to change the handles on the cabinets. They are 3 3/4″ center to center and I found this handles at Lowes. They are perfect!! I will say the handles that come with the cabinets are very good – they’re actually made of wood, not plastic. I just wanted to amp them up a tad 😉
