« Part 9: Finally some progress! Part 10 of Kitchen remodel series Part 11: Wood Trim Primer »

I worked on making new door trim moulding, well the bullnose trim anyways. The trim is just painted 1×4 MDF trim from the BORG. The bullnose trim is 1x pine that I planed down to 3/8” and then routed a bullnose profile. It is not much for detail but it matches the existing trim that was already in the house, so I thought it should stay as it was:


After finish nailing the trim, I set the nails and then used wood putty to fill all nail heads and joint seams to try to give the final paint finish a smoother look:



Here is the wall behind the stove that needed to be repaired, it had a big section of plaster that had cracked, came loose and had to be replaced. This is the first coat:


I hope to get the stove wall completed by the weekend, needs another coat of mud, a new baseboard moulding, which is already cut to length, just need to drill the hole in it for the gas line. Then wood putty the nail heads and seams, then sand all the putty down and apply the first coat of primer.

I enjoy this kitchen re-modeling series immensely. Particularly as the photos offer a visual description of how and what and why. The mud wall is going to look fantastic. The rustic feeling offered by mud brick never fades with time. Retaining original feature such as around the door jam is another favorite trick of mine. The doors in remodeled homes can actually take center stage along side all of the wonderful modern appliances that are available for our fast paced lifestyles. Is that terracotta flooring? This is another great material to use with mud brick walls and older homes. I would be interested to know what type of heating and or cooling you are placing in the kitchen and also did you remodel the windows? Well done.
