Welcome to August

It is hard to believe summer is winding down. School starts in 3 weeks. That means the push is on to get as much finished before the homes tour as possible.
All of the IKEA cabinets are together. Here is a shot with one of the doors with some of the protective film pulled back. The top and bottom pieces are almost finished and most of this should get installed this week. The top of this will be concrete (of course) with the broken red murano glass pieces in the surface and fiber optics. I am such a nerd, the concrete top will have a power unit. This is a much needed item for our house. The buffet will free up cabinet space by holding all of the wine, liquor, and barware. It will also give the cats someplace to sit and look out the back windows other than the kitchen counters. We don't let them up but surprisingly cat footprints end up on the stove nightly.
The desk top has been ground and filled. It will have to hang out a week or so to get hard enough to polish. The white concrete with the green and blue glass looks really good.

The stainless steel hairpin pegs and headboard support for the bed. Everything came from
