Kitchen Painting Progress
We wasted no time trying to make our kitchen look a little bit better when we first bought our house in the middle of November. We started stripping wallpaper the day after we got the keys. And of course, that exposed a, better than stained wallpaper, but still ugly paint job and walls in need of some attention. We lost a little bit of steam in the kitchen while we worked on other things (carpet removal, basement demolition, mudroom sprucing) and the kitchen had pretty much sat with globs of drywall mud on them for the past few months, just begging for some attention. I’m happy to say that this weekend our kitchen walls finally got the attention they, and we, deserved. In case you don’t remember what we walked in to, here is one of our kitchen walls when we first moved in.And here it is after the wallpaper came down. And again here after two coast of utterly beige went up and a fresh coat of semi – gloss white went on the trim! Is it just me or is the new paint job even helping the floor look a bit better? We’re still planning on doing a full renovation in the next year or so – fingers crossed that nothing comes up and sucks our kitchen money down the drain. In the meantime though, this is helping me enjoy my kitchen just a little bit more. And I’m not finished in here yet. I plan to paint the cabinets to match the trim, move the hardware, and figure out something to play down the ugly in the countertop. Stay tuned for pictures of the rest of the kitchen later in the week.
