Maple syrup. Maple glazed donuts. Fiery red Japanese Maples in the fall. I love them all, but perhaps none as much as I love our new maple quarter round!
Holy cow, how ecstatic am I to have this over and done with?! I sent this photo to my mom and she texted back, “What? What am a looking at??” Which means we scored big time.
For those of you that are just joining in, when we had our flooring replaced (you can read about our flooring materials here and the installation here), the installers mistakenly encased the cabinetry in thick 1/2″ white quarter round. I went back to the store and was able to negotiate for them to come back out and fix it free of charge (you can read about that here).
Anyway, for the last few weeks, the white quarter round in our kitchen has stuck out like a sore thumb. It was the first thing I (or anyone) saw when they walked into the room. Yes, it was that bad. So for my mom to not notice the quarter round means we’ve successfully remedied the problem! Yippie!
Without further ado, here are a few before and after photos for you.
BEFORE with the white quarter round:
And AFTER it was replaced with matching maple quarter round:
So. Much. Better.
Truth be told, we’re not quite out of the woods yet. The installers are going to need to come back for a fourth time because they neglected to replace this section in the hallway and no one (ahem, his name starts with an “H” and ends with “usband”) noticed until they had left. I was at work or you can be damn sure I would have called them on it. :)
I swear, that blasted white stripe will be the death of me. Good news though, guys! I think we’re buying a new refrigerator tomorrow. So very exciting!!
UPDATED to add: We bought a shiny white fridge! Check it out. :)
