Anyway way back in February (can it really be that long ago) I purchased a new oven and microwave - apart from Doug's offer there was the fact that I saw a Bosch oven advertised for a little more than half price. When I went to purchase it the sales lady suggested a Panasonic microwave that almost matches the oven.
The week before last I helped Doug remove the old ovens. We were not able to separate them for removal but were able to bring in a trolley and put the whole caboodle on that and wheel it outside.
Of course, the new oven and microwave are different sizes to the previous ones so Doug has methodically been getting the area ready. Finally, last night, the electrician connected the new oven for me. No cooking as yet but I am looking forward to it.
The old ovens
Was surprised to find this old wallpaper in behind the ovens.
The start of the process with a new lining on the back.
The timber moulding and shelves in place
Then the back panel was painted and the moulding and shelves given coats of polyurethane.
Ta raaa - the finished product
and with the little drawer made at the base for cookbooks opened.
