We are all for our children being independant. So we lowered the bar in his closet to help our oldest be able to pick out and dress himself in the morning.

Dishwasher install







Make sure you shut off the power!


time to pull out old dishwasher


Here is the new dishwasher


And the dishwasher is in. When we gut and redo the entire kitchen we will make it actually sit in there nice and pretty but for now (for the next few years) this will work.




Dining Room Make Over


































Kitchen Cabinet redo

So lowes had a greyish color paint on clearance which I purchased for $5. Then they gave me a $5 rebate. So we got the paint for free. I decided to redo to kitchen cabinets.



















Sadly It has been a month and I have made zero progress since then LOL


Shelf Addition




So a few weeks back we painted and added 2 shelves on each side of the main windows in the dining room.

Materials
Two 1/2" x 7" x 8' Primed MDF board
Twelve  - 1-in x 8-ft x 6-in Paint Grade Interior Pine Corbel Bracket Accent
Lowes link for bracket
Two 1/2" x 2" x 8' Primed MDF board
E-Z Ancor 20-Pack Stud Solver Drywall Anchors
Ancor link from lowes


Total cost
I think the cost came in around $70. Or about $17.50 for each shelf.

We could have saved some money by not using 3 pine brackets and using 2 metal brackets or even just making our own brackets. However I don't own a router and the Mrs wanted something halfway decent.
