Oh yes, the kitchen. We’re eagerly planning a full scale remodel complete with new cabinets, double wall ovens, moving the island out a foot for more work space, and a marble back splash. But that can’t happen right now. Fingers crossed it can happen within the next 365 days. But, there have been a few minor changes since we moved in. Remember the blue wallpaper?
Vincent and I tore it down, exposing the glue backing. Already a vast improvement in the light and bright department.
Then I sprayed the glue, scraping it off. And replaced the windows. I didn’t do that, Ben did. He’s far more skilled than I am.
For months, the kitchen looked like this:
Eeeesh, not good. Scratched walls, filled nail holes, and dingy primed walls. Last weekend I got so sick of looking at the ugly walls. That’s what happens when our weather isn’t nice and I’m stuck in the house a lot. I look for things to do. To flow with the family room, I painted the walls Sandstone Cove, using Glidden’s Duo eggshell.
Ahh, the glory of solid colored walls.
Too bad the rest of the kitchen isn’t as easy to change.
Because the kitchen wraps over to my office, I painted those walls, too.
Black hole of electronics be damned. Hmm, wonder if I could spray paint them… Haha, not going to do that!
If only the paint had been a bolder color to make the change more obvious. One small step for me, one giant leap for our kitchen. Do you get itchy when the weather doesn’t coöperate? Look for something, anything to do?
