Please post pics of your organized cabinets and drawers

We are almost finished with our kitchen, just need to have the island slab installed (next week) and the new wood floors put in. Unfortunately we're doing this backwards and should have decided on wood first so the demo of our tile could have been done before our kitchen renovation; my DH only decided yesterday that we should add it to our budget.

I've decided to start putting some stuff back so we can begin cooking again. I really want to be organized this time around. It's not in my nature but I'm going to make every effort!

Some of the organizational skills here on GW scare me in their thoughtful thoroughness. I'm hoping some of it rubs off on me as I put all of my things back in place.

I would appreciate photos.

What did you introduce to your GC that impressed them?

I think this may be along the lines of favorite things in your kitchen.

What had your GC never seen/installed before (and maybe tried to talk you out of) that after they saw it installed and in action did they love.

Did they then encourage others to use the same item(s)?

I'm tired of making decisions on pendants, DW's and faucets so thought this would be a great thread diversion. (And of course might give me new ideas too!)

Showing Off Paint Stripping Efforts

posted by: SK97232 on 11.21.2012 at 12:40 pm in Old House Forum

I'm pretty excited that after a month or so of hard work, my entryway is stripped. I stripped the paint from this woodwork in place because the wood was so nice, I didn't want to risk breaking any of it.

I started with a heat gun to take off the bulk of the paint, then I came back for a second pass with KleanStrip. Then I finished with some sanding. Overall, I'm pleased with the results!

Only one without design software?

I've been searching and searching and searching for a way to draw my layouts on the computer, as I've gone through a forest of graph paper, and which necessitates redrawing every component again even if I want to sketch a minor change. Sigh. So, looked through here, and found only mention of Sketch Up, which I gave up on fairly quickly. Also, it doesn't seem to be what everyone else is using. So those of you who are able to draft layouts in the time that it has taken me to write this message, what do you use? I'm willing to pay, as long as it's user-friendly. On a Mac at work, PC at home.
