Well today was the day that I was going to get shit done on the kitchen remodel! I had one last cabinet to prime, a few repairs and then sanding of all of the primed cabinets… it was going to be a big day! And truly all was going well (albeit messy and dirty and overall not fun) and I was moving along at a good clip and on track to finish what I had planned to finish until this happened… (insert lots of bad, bad words here…)
I dropped my mouse sander on the glass cooktop and the top shattered big time! I was lucky that the glass didn’t fly off of it, but I was extremely pissed to say the least. Now granted I hated this cooktop, it is 13 or so years old and it was hard to see the numbers beside the dial but it worked just fine and I wasn’t yet ready to replace it. I mean it takes me a lot of time and research to find just what I want and also what will fit the cutout in the granite that already exists. So my search begins today and I need to find a replacement quick because I cannot use my cooktop in this condition, I guess I will be using the crockpot for a while…
On the plus side we really are at a good point with the kitchen cabinet updates.
All of the new cabinets are installed and everything is primed and ready for the first coat of paint! I’m so excited about the cabinet over the oven and refrigerator that I have already been mentally planning on how to stage that area.
As you can see we got the tile installed (but not yet grouted) over the stovetop, but we had a little scope creep and decided to tile over the window over the sink as well… it just looked awkward without tile there.
So I’m off to find the perfect/inexpensive/right size/quick ship stovetop, wish me luck… I have a feeling I’m going to need it!
Until next time…
Love your tile and so sorry about the shattered cook top! You are invited to bring your sander over and drop it on mine so I can get a new induction cook top and cookware 🙂
Lol… It was a “lucky” drop, but unfortunately I had such a hard time finding an exact fit I ended up buying a new glass top, which I didn’t even know was possible! Hope you get your new stovetop soon!
Oh sh?! You are not kidding! Yikes! On the bright side you get a new stove top. Great progress. Can’t wait for the end result.
Nope, not kidding! But unfortunately I didn’t end up finding a stovetop that fit my opening so I ended up just buying a replacement piece of glass, which I didn’t even know was possible!
Well, crappity crap! Your kitchen is looking amazing, but that cooktop is a little more than spilled milk, isn’t it?
Yes it is, but “luckily” I found out I could just replace the glass… But that means I don’t get a new stove… But finding a stovetop to fit the exact cutout we have proved to be impossible!
Sorry about the cooktop. Always somethin’. : / But the tile looks fantastic!
Thanks so much Joanne! I found out that I can just replace the glass top! Didn’t even know that was possible… so the hit to the budget wasn’t too terrible!
