Hello loves, I hope you’re great! Here in Casa Cozy things are moving forward as fast as we can, we are stuck in between lots of work and building and since the days are so short now with the darkness it’s going a bit slow. But brighter days are coming and it will all be fine! Now we have at least started with the kitchen which is a big step! Let’s take a look of what we’ve been up to! We also have a new vlog which you find at the end <3Klemens spent the whole last week cutting the wood for the kitchen doors and drawers and it’s looking great. We are using the old wood that we found inside the walls when we did the tear down, just to keep some memory of the building and also because it has a nice look with all the marks and cracks ;) We will of course clean them off and take away all the dust, and then treat the wood so it’s protected. We want the wood to be a bit darker and not so warm. When the dust comes off they get very yellow. So we got recommended to use a product that we got from Sweden that helps the wood age very fast as if it has been laying out in the nature for many many years. So more greyish and beautiful! So we tested that on a piece of wood and it turned out really beautiful, exactly the color we want. Now we just need to figure out how this will turn out in some months and how we can protect it further, etc etc. We will see, this was an experiment but looks good!While Klemens was cutting the wood I was painting the kitchen cabinets in grey colour, which I think is completely blue, what colour do you see? We are re-using the old kitchen cabinets and drawers etc etc, that was here before, but we freshen it up a bit with some colour and care :)Now we just need to figure out with the wood treatments and later put it all together. Today we spent the day at the wood shop talking with the guys and figuring things out which we will try this week. We also got our kitchen knobs today which I’ll show you later. When the kitchen is up we will build the top board and some extra cabinets with micro cement! In the video below you can see more in detail what we did and also a draft of our “future” kitchen – how we’ve planned it to look like and what we’re going for! <3

Lots of love xx Mikuta + Klemens

It looks amazing! Could you give the name of the product you treated the wood with? Thanks and good luck with the rest of your project!
