Hey everyone! And welcome back to my
channel. In today’s video I’m going to talk to you about the best way to choose the
color of your cabinets. Now a lot of people think that the minute they choose
their cabinet color well, that’s downhill from there and then
that’s going to help them narrow down the countertop color.
Well that’s exactly
what’s going to happen if you choose your cabinet color first. Then that
immediately curates your countertop colors because now your choices are a
lot more slim. But if you don’t know which countertop to install, it’s not
going to get easier when you choose the cabinet color because once you finally
decide what it is, you don’t want to be stuck to a cabinet color that may or may
not work with your countertop so this is how you do it.
I was recently in a client’s home and
when I got there, because I was there to help her choose her kitchen finishes, she
had her countertop and her backsplash and everything was just laid out flat on
her chocolate-brown dining table so there is the first
Because you can’t see color when it’s all just laid out flat like that. So the first thing you want to do is lay your finishes exactly how they’re going to be when you install them. So here I’ve got just a medium brown hardwood floor this is Calacatta Novo with Caesarstone and this is Misty Carrara right here.
what you do is you lay them down because now the countertop is going to be
horizontal along with the floor, right? Let’s do our potential cabinet colors
first. So then you plunk them up and what I usually do is I just turn
around whatever sample I happen to have.
You can see that I’ve got an off-white wall here but just so that you’re always creating a clean backdrop with your samples. You can use any poster board for this but if you’re using my large color samples, that’s the easiest way to just instantly create like a clean backdrop.
Okay so then I’ve got a white, true white and an off-white here and this is [Benjamin Moore] Chantilly Lace and this is [Benjamin Moore] White Dove and then the next thing you want to do … this is a really good tip… Most big-box stores sell white, off-white, and cream subway tile. These are really great control tiles to have with you, especially if you’re a designer and you are helping your clients choose tiles.
Because immediately, you can start to see if you’re dealing with a true white tile or an off-white tile or a cream tile because you’ve got the ones that you know are that color, because there’s so many tiles that are just greige, so how do you know that they’re gray? Well you compare them to your control tiles, which is what I have here okay this is my true white backsplash tile here and then I’ve got my off-white backsplash tile here and then you can start to see which one is right.
Now, can I do a true white over here with
Calcutta Novo well Calcutta Novo is actually a little bit greige and so if
you had decided that okay, I’m just going to go with true white because that’s got to go with their most things, right? And then later you decided that Calcutta Novo was
the best countertop choice.
You could not go with
Chantilly Lace because Calcutta Novo is actually greige and taupe. Taupe actually
looks really good with it. So let’s just walk through what my client was
considering when I got to her house.
So when I got to her house she had chosen taupe LVP flooring (luxury vinyl plank flooring). I don’t have any taupe flooring here but I’m just gonna use this [Benjamin Moore] Ranchwood sample because it is identical to the LVP that she was considering.
So let’s put that down here and then so Calcutta
Novo, you can see actually has this taupe actually has some nice taupe veins on it
so if you plunk that down, it matches great. Now how do I know that
this is greige? Well, when I put my cream sample right next to it,
it’s too yellow and that’s how you know that cream is not actually the correct
way to go at all.
So, basically you’re in the world of off-white or you would choose just a lighter, greige color perhaps for the cabinets so that would tie in with that color. However, she was considering [Benjamin Moore] Collingwood she had a true white backsplash tile and Collingwood was the color that she was considering for her cabinets because she’d seen it in a celebrity designer’s kitchen.
when I placed them all together like this, I said, “You know, if you go this
route it’s all really greige now. You’ve got like a you know gray feeling taupe-y
floor. Now you’re going to Collingwood, which is a bit of a purple
gray, for your cabinets.
You know your whole kitchen is going to feel greige.” You
know it’s 2020 right now and gray is already dated now that the black and
white trend is here so in this celebrity designer’s kitchen
she had this countertop but she had this great classic and timeless medium brown floor so Collingwood worked great because it created this balance of warm
and cool and that’s what you want to do when you’re choosing colors, is that you
don’t want everything to be cool or everything to be warm.
You want to create a balance of warm and cool and so if you’re going to copy someone else’s kitchen
make sure you’re actually copying the kitchen almost identically or you’re
just not going to end up with the same results and you’re going to be
So always choose your countertop first because everything flows from there and if you need some help choosing your countertop or any of your kitchen finishes, I can help through my eDesign department. You’ll be very happy with the results when you follow these useful guidelines on how to choose kitchen remodel colors.
I know, I know you guys, I get so many questions. Where have I been? What have I been doing? Am I still doing a YouTube channel? Do I still even bake? Well, I have somethin’ to tell you. I renovated my kitchen and it took forever so I wanna show you everything about it and why I did it.
I think we should really start
at the front door ’cause it’s new so you can see the whole space. Come on. You probably don’t know it, but
I never really had a good entry. There was an awkward closet here.
This was a window. There was a tight door here that
you couldn’t open and let people in. I never used it. Move the door to that way so
there was a nice throughfare and it made a beautiful entry. I put a bench in here, some hooks,
you can just hang your coat up.
And of course I added some sconces ’cause
art and lighting to me was just like key. So it’s a really fun space
now to let people in. It should be easy, you would think, but
this floor took me quite awhile to find.
I wanted a really kind of rustic, yet refined black slate floor. So I finally found it. It’s natural slate. I had it laid in a herringbone with a double bond around the edge just to kinda frame it out.
It’s such a small space so this was like a really huge impact. And I love how, when you come in, it has that great almost farmhouse feel and feels like a slight mudroom entrance, which is exactly what I wanted.
The entryway leads you right
into my open living room. Now you might remember,
I used to sit right here. You saw a big oval door behind me when
I would do all my videos and this was just one big living room, dining room.
The biggest change in here – the layout obviously, the furniture is the same surprisingly – is this doorway I put in. This was never here. I raised the ceilings up to nine foot because that’s what’s original in this farmhouse.
And that foot makes a huge
difference by the way. In doing that, we found a beam
that you couldn’t get rid of. And I realized I don’t want to. It defines the two spaces. So I cased it out in original woodwork
that matches the upstairs, which is the only place in the whole house
that had any original woodwork.
Now, all of it matches
and it really sets it off. The woodwork for me: showpiece. Interiors are huge for me. It’s how I feel at home. You know I love to collect, you know
I love antiques, so obviously I had to incorporate them any place I could.
One way was all these vintage and antique
lithographs I collect of botanical prints. They’re all different flowers. You know I love to garden. And I had them framed with just
the perfect look for this space.
They match really cleanly. They’re just white oak frames that match the floor and it really goes well with this English pine cupboard. I love the mix of natural kind of light tones. My house always felt kind of dark and this was a chance for me to really lighten it up and make it brighter and let more light in.
So everything kind of has those cool
natural tones along with some of my favorite pieces here and there. ‘Cause like fish floats. I collect them. Why? I don’t know, but don’t they look good? I love ’em.
Let’s go into the family room and I
usually back, you know, ten months ago and walked into a wall here. There was a huge wall here and I
never would’ve thought about it until I really started designing the space
and realized, without this wall, it’s not open concept, it’s still
defined rooms, but now everything flows and light gets everywhere.
Again, I cased it in the woodwork, so it felt like it was an original opening with that really good, thick, heavy farmhouse woodwork. And now you can just come on in and everything fits easier. I can get better chairs in here for TV viewing.
A bigger small sectional here, which is
awesome because I never had that kind of couch that I can actually lay down in. The biggest change in
here was the TV area. There was a huge deep closet here and
it kind of was just unusable space.
It had bi-fold doors that
I couldn’t do a lot with. Well now, I have a built-in that is
perfect for displaying a few things, it holds the DVD player, the Dish box,
but also then it just has my TV right here and it’s the perfect place for it.
I used to have it on the wall, but it
felt kind of like obscene just out of the middle of nowhere was this big honkin’ TV. Now it has a home and it feels
really defined and it fits the space. I went slight shade
darker than my woodwork.
Same spectrum, little darker,
just so it gave it a little bit of an edge and set it off slightly. Guys, game-changer. Otherwise, you know me and antiques. I had a mix in a couple pine pieces,
a little pine three-drawer dresser.
It is the perfect element to have
just tucked away with a lamp on it. I can put blankets in it. Antique pieces can be
so versatile and usable. That’s what I love about them. And of course, you know, some old
texture right here with these trunks.
It was so fun to get things
out and say, you know what? I’ve been collecting this for
years, how am I going to use it? Traveler’s pottery: I
can put plants in it. Wood bowls to corral remotes. It’s just a great space.
I love the textures, the coziness. I finally feel at home. The dining room didn’t necessarily change
too much other than it feels a lot bigger. I actually have a bigger table
in here than I ever have, and I can open it up to even bigger.
That’s a dream, you guys. I can have more people over. Otherwise, layout, I think it
pretty much stayed the same. I do have area rugs just to kind of
define the spaces and it adds that cozy texture that I kind of love.
The biggest change in here was this wall. There was a big bay window that bowed out. Now, there is so much more light with
two large doors right onto the patio. These doors literally were the beginning,
I think, of the concept for the design.
They changed everything. They match the two new front doors. They open up wide. They let in a lot more light,
but they also make the patio so much more welcoming. So when you’re sitting here, you
can see everything that’s going on outside: the different seasons,
whether it’s snow, ’cause I put a tree out there at Christmas.
Yeah. Whether it’s the sun in the summer with
all the green, it’s fun to have these doors now just really define the space. For me to make a house feel like a home,
I had to add in my elements, my older things and things that had a story.
I love a story. Like these simple little two stools. These are both my great grandma’s and my
great, great grandpa’s milking stools. They would actually use these on the
farm, which let’s all think about how you had to balance and milk.
.. I don’t get it… But it just adds some great
texture, a great little look, and it also has a great story. And for me, that’s what the
whole point of these items and interiors in your space is. It needs to have a connection and
all these things have a connection.
Even if it’s that I went to a flea market
and bought it, I remember when, and it’s a moment and a memory and I love it anyway. So before we get to the whole
point of this: the kitchen… Let me make sure you understand
what it used to be like.
In the old kitchen, it was pretty dark and
didn’t have a lot of usable space. It had a U-shape and then it had a free floating
island in the middle that I brought in when I took out a built-in table
that took up a lot of the main kitchen.
In the new kitchen, I opened up the wall
into an existing breezeway and added a small baking room with its own wall
oven, microwave, and a small island. The main kitchen has a larger stove and
I put a built-in fridge in a doorway and it honestly opened up the whole room.
The island has a ton of usable space for
me and looks directly into the now open doorway, right into the dining room. That was a game changer
for the whole space. This is the doorway that used
to come into the kitchen.
It was a lot narrower, probably
about like this, and when you walked in, there was a big doorway here,
too, that went out to that little entry where there was a closet. So we filled that in and put a
fridge there that’s built in.
It has the fronts of the cabinets so
it really recedes and doesn’t feel like a heavy fridge right there. You hardly even notice it, which I love. Coming down the line is my stove. Completely different spot as you just
saw, it was on the opposite wall.
Now it’s right here. I would’ve never thought I could fit in
a larger stove, which I did, with more space, have a big hood over it, and have
all these spaces to put items beside it. I wanted the hood to feel built-in, part
of the wall, but then I made shelves inside so I could put extra spices, my
oils, my salts, my pepper, even utensils if I need them here in the stove.
It’s really a working kitchen and it
really works for how I wanna use it. Doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful. I had to add in elements like a
brass gallery rail to match all the finishes with a little shelf.
You can put some old
cutting boards up there. I’m sure at Christmas it will
change just because it always does. And these elements are all exactly
what helped me have a great kitchen. Even like a spice drawer.
I can fit all my spices, not
all – I have extras – but I can fit so many now, right in here. They’re right beside where I need them. When I’m ready to cook or here at the
island, I can just grab ’em and go.
I love it. When thinking how I wanted it to be more of a farmhouse kitchen, it’s kind of a look, obviously, but it also means there’s not usually a lot of just upper cabinets. That kind of breaks up your eyesight and kind of looks not like a true old farmhouse kitchen.
So to change it up and give
a more built-in feel, I have built-in shelves over here. They’re adjustable so I can
change what I put on them. Right now it’s the perfect place
to hold my yellowware collection.
Ya know I love it. Yellowware and brownware, big crock bowls. I could also put on there stock
pots that I could grab and use. The top ones are high enough that you
can’t just grab ’em as easily, but I’m tall so I actually can grab quite a bit.
But it’s a great place just to add some texture and warmth into the kitchen with whatever you put up there. And those little details make the kitchen. So part of the farmhouse feel was little detailed elements like a small ledge up here out of the countertop material.
I brought the countertop up about a
foot and then I put a small two-inch ledge and it just has a nice little
reveal and it finishes it off. So it kind of has that old washstand feel. On an old washstand, you’d
have marble up and then back.
And so it kind of gives that same effect
and it gives you that nice little detail that just makes it feel a little bit
more thought out and put together. And that’s what makes
this whole space exciting! In my old kitchen, I always
hung my skillets underneath the old island that I put in there.
Well, I loved that so much, I
actually added a small space that I could hang my skillets in here so I
can grab ’em, use ’em on the stove. Those elements that you’re used
to is what makes a kitchen yours.
And that’s what I used all over the place. Since I’m doing such neutral colors
and the palette is all kind of clean and white, I needed to add some color. So this is a great way to add
a little bit of color in a rug.
I can change this rug out when I need to. It’s indoor/outdoor material, so for a
kitchen it’s durable and that’s what’s important ’cause, you know, I also
have my little Kip around here too. I wanted some big drawers
since I have a lotta kettles.
I used to stuff them in
kind of a corner cabinet. It didn’t work. Now I have this peg system, so I can
kind of line ’em up as I need to. And the more I use ’em, I keep
changing them around to make it work, but it’s a great way to have
a lot of storage in deep drawers.
And for all the finishes throughout the whole space: unlacquered brass. Right now, it looks shiny, but it’s gonna age and patina. I grew up in a farmhouse, just across the road, that had a lot of old features, like all the old brass door knobs and handles, and they have a great patina on them after so many years of use, and I can’t wait for these to start getting that too.
To have that country house built-in
feel, ceiling to countertop cabinets were a must for me. I love the look. I love how it’s built-in. It looks more like a piece of
furniture, which for me was so important with the kitchen.
I want it to feel like it
flowed with the house and really fit into the surroundings. And one of my favorite features: I
can push ’em back and have it open. So it’s kind of a slight open concept
feel but without being married to it.
So I can have all my plates,
my glasses, my mugs in here. I’m also able to put my coffee
and my espresso machine in here. And then you can, if you’re having people
over and want it more casual, low key, I just open it up, tell people go grab
a plate, grab a glass, whatever they need, and it’s all right there for them.
So it’s kind of that perfect
feel and it kind of is really exciting for me ’cause it’s really
close to the functionality too. So I have my dishwasher here. So when I unload it, I’m able
just to put everything right away, right into my silverware
drawer that’s right underneath it.
So it all flows together,
which works really well for me. You may notice that I’m able to
walk through what used to be a wall. Yeah, my kitchen stopped here. My stove was here. This was not open. There was a small doorway
with an actual door.
So it felt very tight,
closed in, and dark. This is completely different. Again, a cased opening with
that original woodwork. And surrounding it is all this
shiplap and beadboard on the ceiling. There was a very
strategic reason for that.
This, at one point in the house’s
history, I don’t know when, was an add-on. It was like a side porch that
they added a kitchen into. And so I wanted it to feel
separate from the house. So instead of having plaster put
in here, I put it in shiplap.
So it actually feels like maybe
it was a little bit more raw, a little bit more roughed in, which
would’ve been very normal back then. So that beadboard ceiling would’ve
originally been on a porch, so it makes sense that it could
still be here from that original.
I like in my head to think I’m
telling a story and that this is just adding to the house’s history
and the story that it tells. And that is what keeps
me so excited about this. And also in opening that up, I was able
to add square footage that was there and just utilize it and have a baking room.
To mirror the one that’s right on the
other side of the wall here, is another ceiling to counter pantry cabinet. This is all my baking items. And I can push them out when I wanna bake. My mixer is in there.
I sometimes move it over to the
island, sometimes I keep it in there. It’s really a great place to have
everything I need: my sugars, my flours, my sugars for on top of cookies. So it has everything in there.
And then underneath it, I can
put some cookie cutters, I can put a lotta baking spices. So I’m able to really kind of
utilize the kitchen into more of a baking side and a cooking side. It’s a dream. It’s a luxury.
I can’t believe I’m actually able
to use it, and I am so excited. What’s really fun over here
is to make it fully functional for baking, I have a wall oven. And then my microwave is over
here too, just ’cause it makes sense to put ’em together.
So there’s so much storage over here for
all my baking pans, all of my sheet pans. So I can have everything over here
and then I have a small island that I can actually do it on. I can roll out my pie
crust here or my rolls.
I can bake my bread here. I have pound cake going ’cause
I’m having someone over tonight. And underneath, the big thing here was,
it’s not just wood on the second shelf. It is my countertop material. I wanted quartz because I want it to
be durable, but I wanted the look of marble, which is almost impossible
to find a good marble-looking quartz.
I like what I have and what I love is,
putting it on that second shelf means I can take hot pans out of the oven,
put ’em down there, let them cool, so I have a lot more space I can use
without worrying if I’m getting it too hot or if wood would get messed up.
So it’s really usable and that
to me was the whole point. This is all extremely functional and it
works extremely well for what I want. To finish off the baking room,
there was gonna be a big wall here.
And big walls are fine, but I had
things I want to put on that wall. So I got these wonderful racks
that you can hang items from. So these are brass, they
will age, they will patina. And then I have some of my
copper collection on here.
There’s molds, there’s cake pans. Actually I do use some of
it, like, the pans I do use. But it’s a great place to put it all. It adds a lot of warmth
over here, which I love. It bounces that warm light around,
especially when all the lights are on in the evening, and it
really finishes off the space.
It makes it feel like this working
kitchen and that’s what I love. It is extremely a working kitchen. I use it hard. I’m gonna use it hard, but it
actually has beauty to it too. And to me, you need to marry that
beauty with the functionality ’cause I love it both.
And those brass elements keep on going to all the hardware in the whole place. So all the back plates are brass. They’re unlacquered. They’re gonna age, they’re gonna get that patina, especially the more you use ’em, the more you put your oils on them, they’re already starting to show just a little bit.
And then the push button switches. Guys, this is huge. I grew up in a house that still had
the original push button switches, only like one or two though. And I was able to find replicas
with little Mother of Pearl inserts.
And what’s great is, they make ’em now
that you can have a dimmer on them. So they’re a look in themselves. It has a story. It has a look to it. So now when people come over,
they’re like, “oh, your house always had those old switches?” I can either say “uh-uh,” or I
can say, “no, but I found them.
“That’s what I love, when everything tells a story and it really fits in with that old feel I’m having everywhere. And that’s why I chose these door handles. These handles are exactly what my upstairs still has and did have.
So in my head, they were always in the house. They’re rimlock handles, so they have a little bit different way they’re put in. You actually have to inset into the doorframe a little bit. But again, they’re unlacquered brass, so they’re gonna patina and age and get darker.
But moreso, they’re what
the house would’ve had. And that to me is what’s
so important here. The story keeps being told and it
keeps going together and now going forth, you weren’t changing anything. I was really just bringing
it back to what it was.
While the black windows look a little
bit more modern, they’re actually an original style to a farmhouse. And some old farmhouses had black. A lot had a dark green color around here. But these are actually pretty much the
original windows with more functionality and they don’t have the window weights.
I remember those. Those were awful. And don’t worry. If you think you missed something or wanna know more, I’m gonna try to talk about every product I have on the blog post. So go read about it on my website: wyseguide.com. I will put every single thing, hopefully, that I’ve used in here, maybe some links in there to hope point you in the right direction. I want you to be able to find everything, get all your questions answered, and hopefully be inspired.
That’s the whole new space. That’s where I’ve been the last
I don’t know how many months. And I can’t wait to now have all these
new videos for you in this space. They’re so much better. I’m gonna be talking to you
live as I’m making the food.
That’s a complete difference
from what I was doing before. But moreso, it’s gonna be more me
because this is completely me and I poured my heart and soul into it. So I can’t wait now that
you have seen it too.
So I’m gonna keep inviting
you into my house. I’m gonna show you awesome recipes. I want you to keep sharing them around,
telling me what you want to see. If you want more of my outside,
keep checking my Instagram ’cause I am giving garden updates all the
time and telling you information.
I love to hear from you and I love to see how you are inspired by this. So, come back and I’ll meet ya in the kitchen.
If you want to remodel your kitchen using a rustic theme, you have to consider various design factors. Among these is the aesthetics. It is important to consider a design that emphasizes natural elements and works well with the kitchen’s functional needs. Moreover, it is best to include accessories that give a personal touch to the kitchen’s design.
Another design element that can make a kitchen look rustic is the use of weathered wood. You can incorporate this in the kitchen’s cabinets, walls, and beams. Similarly, you can use porcelain tiles that mimic real wood. This is a practical solution that you can use when you don’t have access to real wood. Aside from that, you can choose a color palette that matches the look of the wood. Lastly, you can add a textured area rug to tie everything together.
In the end, you can also consider adding a drop-down desk, which is perfect for a small home office. By choosing the right designs and materials, you can have a rustic theme kitchen that’s beautiful, functional, and livable.
Rustic Kitchen Essentials
Designing a Rustic Kitchen: If you’re looking to create a rustic kitchen, there are a few things you’ll need to take into account. First, you’ll need to choose the right materials. Rustic kitchen designs often incorporate natural materials like wood and stone. You’ll also want to choose rustic-style fixtures and appliances.
Choosing the Right Materials: When it comes to rustic kitchen design, the materials you choose are key. Look for natural materials like wood and stone. You can also incorporate rustic elements like reclaimed wood beams or antique stone flooring.
Creating a Functional Layout: When designing a rustic kitchen, it’s important to create a functional layout. This means incorporating elements like a prep sink or an island into your design. You’ll also want to make sure that your appliances are easily accessible.
Bringing Your Rustic Kitchen to Life: Once you’ve designed your rustic kitchen, it’s time to bring it to life. This means adding rustic-style furniture and accessories. You can also add personal touches like a rustic-style backsplash or a stone fireplace.
So you want to give your kitchen a fresh makeover, but you neither have the time nor the money to make any major renovations. Today, we’re going to show you how to give your kitchen a makeover all in the time it takes to make a Pot Roast.
First, in order to have a delicious dinner
ready by the time your kitchen is done, let’s get the Pot Roast started. You’ll need a crockpot to cook everything
in, like this crockpot by Cuisinart. You’ll also need your basic cooking utensils,
like knives and a cutting board, and a pan.
The ingredients you will need are: 4 lb. beef chuck roast, 2 large sweet onions, 2
red bell peppers, 2 cups celery, 3 cups peeled baby carrots whole, 4 cloves of minced garlic,
4 tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 3 tablespoons tomato paste, 3 tablespoons
dark rum, 3 cup water, 1 cup beef broth, 1 can (14-oz) whole tomatoes in juice, 2 teaspoons
chili sauce, 2 teaspoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper.
First, chop the sweet onions, bell peppers,
and celery. Now brown the meat in a large skillet with
the olive oil. Transfer it to your crockpot and add all the
ingredients except for the flour, onions, bell peppers and carrots.
Set it to medium and let it cook for the next
6 hours while you go about making over your kitchen. Update or add new cabinet hardware to your
kitchen cabinets. They not only add new dimension to your kitchen,
but are affordable and easy to install.
For these knobs, we used the Sleek collection from Amerock. When it comes time to install the knobs, use a template, which you can find at your local Lowe’s, to ensure the knobs are installed correctly and evenly.
Check out our “How to Install Kitchen Knobs” video for the complete instructions. Light fixtures are often the focal point in any room design, so switch out any light fixtures or add more light to dramatically change the atmosphere of your kitchen.
For this makeover, we replaced this older pendant with a more modern pendant. Consider adding under cabinet lighting, which is a great way to increase counter visibility and accent your kitchen style.
Plus, under cabinet lighting is often very
easy to install. To learn how to install a pendant, check out
our How to Install a Pendant video. Replace your plumbing fixtures to introduce
new design elements to your kitchen.
When choosing the finish for your faucet,
take into consideration not only the sink, but the kitchen surroundings as a whole. The finish of the faucet will complement the
knobs and other accents of your kitchen.

the little details of your kitchen. Swapping out items like a new trash can and
soap dispenser will put the finishing touches on you makeover.
Now that we’ve updated the kitchen, let’s
finish our Pot Roast. After 6 hours of slow cooking, add the remaining
ingredients and raise the temperature to medium. Let it cook for two more hours. Once the meat breaks apart easily with a fork
and the veggies are cooked, remove them from the pot to a serving dish.
You will have plenty of juice left over, which
you can simmer into a gravy. Just ladle 1 cup of juice into a pan, set
at medium, and add some of the flour with water until you reach your preferred thickness.
With a fresh, hot meal ready, behold your
Hey everybody, Sam here and Angela, and welcome to our channel welcome back to our home, where we’re doing a renovation of our 1988 palm harbor single mobile home, we installed the back door in our last video.
This awesome wonderful residential door. In today’s video we are going to kick off by doing some electrical cleanup and then we start building the wall to kick start the video we’re going to come back in time with me to yesterday, where i spent a little bit of time doing some electrical work here at our back door in preparation of today’s wall work with our door installed.
I can now focus my attention on this wonderful bundle of mess, the original wiring from the light switches, the outdoor light and the outdoor outlet that we used to have here in our back door. We’Re going to replicate everything we’re going to still have our switch for our new laundry pantry area right above us there’ll also be a switch for an outdoor light on the back side of the house right here at the door.
There will be the light for an outside light and there’s going to be an outlet box down closer to the floor for an outdoor outlet as well. Our door is not trimmed out, so we need to be forward thinking enough to realize we’re going to have our drywall, then we’re going to have some door casement molding, and then we want to have our outlets or our light switches beside them.
We don’t want to crowd up the casing, but we don’t want our switches to go too far down the wall, that we have to make our pantry smaller or, in reality, not make it as large as possible. Just because of where you put the switches looking here.
What we’ve got our king and jack stud? This is probably going to be the thickness of our trim molding on the door once it’s done, so i’m going to put another two by board right up against this. It won’t be a floor-to-ceiling stud.
It doesn’t need to do anything but space, the outlet box off and then i’ll put the switch on the other side of that two by the switch box itself is going to be a two gang or one of the square ones where it holds two different switches.
In it that way, we have one box to control the light inside and outside. At the same time, i’m going to do the same type thing down below for the outdoor outlet i’ll have a two by thick material just to space it off of the king, stud i’ll, attach it there, then we can cut the metal, siding and let it attach And go through the wall at that point up here for our outdoor light, we’re going to put the box right about here, i’m going to attach it to the stud i’m going to mark where i need to cut the siding for this outlet for the light box To go, let’s see if we can cut it with the oscillating tool, foreign we’ll be reusing.
The original outdoor light wiring there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s 14 gauge copper. It’s going to feed it in through this little tab, just like that, give ourselves a service loop and then I’ll staple it here on the stud.
So we have several walls that we’re going to have to build for this, but we’re going to go ahead and try and tackle the biggest one. First, and that’s going to be the one. That’s right here behind me that separates the kitchen from the closet and pantry to do this wall to lay it out.
I think the easiest thing to do for me is to take this scrap 2×4, which is the thickness of the wall. We’re going to frame up we’ll, go ahead and lay it here on the floor. I’M going to reference off of this face of this stud, which is the last remnants of the good wall, lay it this way and then measure from the wall to make sure it is parallel with the wall.
I think it’s gonna be the easiest way to lay it out, so we’ll try that first 53 and a quarter now that we have that wall’s location marked on the floor, we’re going to change direction and we’re going to give ourselves our reference point for this Wall, this is the pantry wall.
I went ahead and cut this 2×4 to go from the floor up to the ceiling, which is not conventional when framing walls. Normally you do top bottom plates and your studs are in between them this one. Since it is floating it’s going to be floating in this space, it’s going to be easier to do it long, so we can attach it to the bottom plate of this wall and the top plate of this wall.
This also gives us our point from here. We will measure out, we will square up a line and scribe where this wall will go. So we can find that mysterious intersection out there in the middle of our kitchen and make sure it’s square.
We are going to space this wall, three inches off of the electrical switch box. Here that way, we still have half inch for our drywall. We still have enough room for our plate cover and we’re not just crowding things too much all the while making sure we make our pantry as big as possible too.
So it looks like three inches. Is the magic number for us i’ll go ahead and put it here? Attach the bottom plate get my level, i will plumb it and then i’ll attach it to the top plate, the new wall? Okay, now we can just grab our lines on the floor.
This way and find our like, i said, magical intersection, so it looks good down there. Let me stand on it. Did we ever find our speed square? Alright, let’s see if this matches our pencil line, it does sweet mark it hey.
What’s that look for, I ate the line. That’s all right! I have what’s going to be the top plate of our wall, and this wall is going to be right where these wires run through they’re going to run through the middle of the top plate.
So i’m going to hold it in place, put some lines here and then drill our three holes here. So we can go ahead and next thread the top plate up and go ahead and attach it to the ceiling. I don’t know if that’s in a ceiling truss or not so don’t think i’ll trust it to stay.
Put all right, let’s measure, for our stud, if you don’t know what ceiling angle you’re dealing with which we don’t really know, we know our roof outside’s a 412. But who knows what all popcorn in here is doing? You can take a scrap piece of wood.
You can hold it up: plumb, like I’ll hold it right up there against my wall and mark the angle then I’ll take this over. My miter saw fidget with the bevel on it and find out what the angle is. Save it, and then i know what angle to cut all of my studs out so a little bit of relative dimensioning for figure out angles and a little bit of mathology.
Lessons too moment of truth. First, one cut – and we don’t have many of these nine foot boards to waste good. It is not too short, but you always worry about our first wall is done, and that was actually pretty easy overall, so we’ve got the studs here, spaced 16 inches on center.
What we’re going to do next is go ahead and start framing the partition wall, the one that separates the pantry from the closet. It’s going to go right about here straight across and the way i want to build.
That is very similar to how i put this stud here. First, we’re gonna have our left side go from floor to ceiling right side floor to ceiling, then we’ll fill in our bottom plate top plate and studs in the middle.
It is not conventional, it is not how you normally see walls framed how they’re framed all in one piece and raised up it’s really difficult to do that in a space like this, and since this is not a load bearing wall, it is just for a place To hang drywall and hang some stuff, it will still be fine.
It’s gonna be rock solid anyway much more than the 1x3s we had to begin with. So I believe we are rocking and rolling pretty well got Angela set up here in the cutting station bedroom and I’m over there calling out measurements, and you know she’s trimming them as need be because I don’t measure right or she’s telling me it’s better.
Do this than that, it’s it’s! A great team work how we work. It is that’s how it works. Yeah, i made the comment. You know we married almost 18 years. This summer will be 18 years. I have very much learned to be okay with being wrong.
When is it applicable when i really need to be wrong, i’m okay being wrong, because honestly, you’re usually right in that sense, i save him more work. You do i’ve learned that i’ve learned it. I’Ve learned in this situation.
If you’re like you know something such i’m like, okay, it’s just easier, so sam’s tip of the day to anybody out there, it’s okay to be wrong, learn to be okay of being wrong. It’Ll make you feel right all right, so we’ve reached the point.
We are starting to go ahead and frame out um. Well, i guess our door frames our door openings for the closets angela and i did some quick online surfing of home depot, which is the store that’s close to us that we like, but they had in stock.
For doors found the doors we plan on buying, looked up their rough opening for framing and that’s what we’re going to start the framework? Would you like to tell them anything else, not really tell them.
Where is the doors? Oh tell them? What your thoughts are? Oh geez, i’m ready to work um. They are going to be white, bifold doors they’re about 36 inches wide, which will give us just a little bit of a.
I don’t know. What do you call it door, opening book yeah a reveal – i don’t know so. We have, i guess, small little walls that we’re going to be building, which means that i get to use up all my little bitty scraps, which makes me happy, because wood prices are crazy.
Yep and most of these cuts have been like just a hair over 49 inches, which means you’re burning, eight footers left to right, yeah. It hurts yeah, we’ll use them, though all right, so we’re going to start building the closet here in the bedroom.
First, that’s going to be the easiest one work away from here towards the kitchen: well, laundry room, pantry, it’s a whole other space. We’re gonna learn we’ll just keep at it until it gets dark or we run out of steam or the kids right out of steam.
Let’s keep going um. Look at the precision. Look at the precision every bit used to make it easy for cutting this piece. Here so that angel wasn’t left with a bevel cut and honestly because it really doesn’t matter either way.
I had her just give me a square cut and ah it’s kind of floating. I then had her cut me a shorter little block when this goes here. All i have to do, then, is butt this up to it and attach them this way and we’re done there’s a little gap here.
Yes, but none of this is load bearing this is just honestly places to put your drywall. Hang the door lower down the door. Will hang from it, but up here it’s kind of dead space, so maybe that could be something helpful for anybody else out there.
You know if you’re fighting with angles and you’re really not wanting to waste your ten dollar, eight foot, two by fours, just get a square cut edge, close enough and cut you a little spacer block that way.
It really takes the guesswork out of it and saves your sanity. Maybe i’ve reached the point where i’m tuckered, i’m done it’s uh 7 15 and i feel pretty accomplished with what we got done so far. Yeah we got walls, we do pretty much.
They may not be filled in yet, but we have walls right sit tight, though we’re going to continue the party tomorrow, and we will finish out framing this thing promise so don’t go anywhere. All right, guys! Welcome back to today, which was tomorrow yesterday, it’s today today, we are going to finish out framing today, we’re going to put in our headers our little mini headers for our closets here paint your closet.
There finish framing the actual divider wall between the two and otherwise be done with framing for this project in preparation of installing drywall. Let’s go. Oh I’m going to space my s. No! It’s yeah right there, yeah! Okay, since my drywall joint, I want it to match up with the drywall over there.
I’M measuring off of it to find where to put my 16 inch on center studs or short little studs up here, so that when it comes time to do drywall, I don’t have to add any boards all right. These are square cuts.
Six and three quarter: you can tell me ten and a quarter and 13 and 3 4. hey uh. We have come down to the time that we need to put the studs in the dividing wall. That’s between the closet and the pantry.
We can get away with. Probably only doing two studs, but i want to do three. We’Re gonna have several closet systems like you’ll see later, but i want to have multiple areas of stud strength behind it.
So i don’t have to worry about too much weight of canned goods or anything like that. That’s going to pull the drywall off the wall make holes that sort of thing. So Sam has already made the points that we’re going to put the studs on and I’m going to get in there and cut them for him.
So he can slap them up and i think that makes us just about done with all the framing nope blocking. That’s not framing, though that’s drywall, that’s part of framing, so let’s get going, let’s go 95 and a quarter 92 and a quarter 89 and 3 8.
.Well, the framing is done, and it’s great, it’s so nice to be able to see what it’s going to be. What it’s going to look like that type thing, the finished depth is going to be about 16 inches for the pantry, and, while that’s not as deep as we would have preferred, we had a set amount of space that we could work with.
We had the light switch right here. We wanted a certain amount of space away from it and then the wall in the bedroom. So we had to kind of work with what we had and we did – and this is so much more pantry space than we had before and it can be floor to ceiling and we didn’t have that anywhere else that we could have done in here.
So this is a thousand times better than it was before we kind of ran into the same thing for our closet in here, as we did in the pantry, with only a set amount of space, we had to kind of move the center wall to make the Best of use of the space, the google term, for how deep a closet should be, is 24 inches.
This one is going to end up being 22 inches finished, but i feel like that is still going to be plenty of room for us to be able to hang up our shirts we’re not trying to get big puffy jackets or anything like that in there, and That enables us to keep this flat wall and the closet out of the bedroom space, which is what we really wanted now for sam’s boring part the technical bits.
What else we got left to do? Obviously, we’ve got to make sure all of our corners and junction points for drywall have sufficient blocking or support behind them. We have a lot of three quarter inch plywood left over from the subfloor that we are not going to use for any more subfloor ever in this house.
So we’re going to use that with some strips fill them in here and there and that work out great. In addition, if camera lady will paint up to the ceiling for one second yeah something’s a little bit out of place on the new closet, we need to move that light, we’re going to hope and pray that it’s a simple procedure of undoing the box.
Taking the wire feeding it through drilling a new hole and putting the old worm box back in place, but we’re not entirely sure yet either way that needs done and another question may pop up of. Are we going to keep a nasty old pool chain full cord piece of twine? Yes and no? We’Ve already bought our new closet light, and it’s one that i never knew such a light existed and is a perfect solution that is very similar to what we have.
But it looks a lot better than the whole silence of the lambs hanging. Light bulb type, weird situation that we’ve been rocking for well ever since we lived here in here with the pantry we have talked back and forth on.
Should we put a light in here? Should we not? What do we want to do? We currently have one single light right here above the door that is not centered with the door anymore, since we moved it down, we’re thinking, we’ll probably go to the store and we’ll look and see how expensive track lighting is, or something of the sense to give Us linear functionality with lighting, allow us to re-center it or at least take away the obviousness that it’s not centered anymore and then give us.
Maybe some task lighting have one shooting here in the pantry one down below and one at the laundry station kind of sounds. Like a cool idea to us, but we haven’t seen how expensive those lights are yet so it may change our minds on that in the future and last but not least, as far as technical stuff, with the area we got it to do, there are some wires Still hanging from the ceiling this one here i don’t know if the camera can see it, can you see it yep sure you can see it it’s hanging down pretty far, that was an original junction box and hard-wired smoke detector for the house.
We had one of our viewers: send us some hardwired smoke detectors and we’re going to absolutely put one back in place here and up front in our living room. Reconnect them. So if something happens, we should be going off.
You know two alarm fire. I guess maybe two arms we also are going to put in some junction boxes in the ceiling for the wires that have used to go to old things in the wall, we’re just going to close them off seal them off, but put them in a junction box.
So it’s all legal good right and tight and you can get to it in the future if you ever have to. I think that’s it for the technical bits as far as the closet and pantry situation, but, as usual, that’s all subject to change as we progress through this fun journey of what it is we’re doing do do so do do.
We have reached a stopping point for this video. This has been a three day video and we have reached a good point to say goodbye. That’s enough! That’s enough! You guys have ingested quite a bit. We’ve made some great progress and gotten to a really good milestone for the work.
I’M very excited to be able to see what we’ve been thinking and dreaming about in our heads pause. I feel like you’ve said that, like the past three or four videos, i know, but this is like huge differences in our house: it’s not just slap paint on it.
It is like taking down multiple walls and putting something in that we’ve only dreamed of having for the past couple of weeks. These are new dreams, but they’re our dreams. All the same. I’Ve always wanted a good pantry, not something just on top of the dryer, which is what we’ve had yeah.
So it’s also nice that we actually have walls. We can’t just float through these fictitious tape. Walls we well, i cannot fit through you might both fit through. That’s an 11 inch stud spacing so let’s see go ahead.
Huh! No! Don’t talk about me. I would say in the next couple of days this is going to be getting covered up too, and so our visions in our head are become visions in real life. There. You go visions, well guys, thanks for coming along as we framed out the pantry in our closet and if you have any questions or comments, leave them below.
Otherwise, we’ll see you guys next time on the homestead see you guys bye, but also not go so far. That way, as we end up not having to what as we would have picked in a perfect world, we had a definite amount of space that we could use.
Is that the right way of saying it? Hi camera, yeah, hey camera, i’m right here and it’s like? No, your face is better with me, not even in the there likewise down below. I will use additional one buyer.
No, that same it won’t be the same. One it’ll be different. Well guys, thanks for coming along, as we did some more work in our single wide. That’s kind of weird okay walking backwards to frame up the shot stuff.
We do don’t want to face with the camera. Okay think that’s about it for technical bits, but again we’ll show you guys all this stuff whenever we finally get to do it. But that’s that’s fizzle! Closed sizzle, sam fizzle, yeah elijah! I told you not to mess with that booger we’ll get in trouble.
So we’re going to use that with some strips fit them in here there heading in here there thanks for coming along, as we framed out the you didn’t say: well guys, okay, that threw you off like that. Like this, i’m looking at where i want the camera there, we go.
It’s like that movies. Like I’m looking right at you. Can you see me that’s a new one. It is my eyes are looking at you that’s hard to do all right. Sorry guys you’re taking a back seat, I got ta, be able to see this.
I can hammer it right at least show a little bit of competency here with a hammer. Oh trying to show off and I broke my box – there’s one for the blooper reel see if I got another box man we’ll see you guys next time on the homestead see you guys bye.
I think there might be a ghost or something in there. What is that? Is it either? No they’re outside there’s, probably starting to go across the floor? What was it i don’t know it’s very windy outside, so it could be that well, we got all the windows open in the doors, the awesome new door.
You may need to close those. I got. Ta get some b-roll to show people what it looks like then we’re done. I’M just closing these most of the way. That’s fine! So we’re going to the store and we’re getting our closet doors right, yeah all right, I’m gonna go put my clothes up online.
