The Painted Kitchen & The Next Item On The To–Do List
I realized today, after my extra long weekend that I never posted any follow-up pictures of the kitchen after our big paint job. And although the lighting isn’t great I thought I would at least give you a shot of our utterly beige walls from another angle. Remember our kitchen when we first moved in? If not, here is an ugly reminder. Blue trim, dirty caulking, stained wallpaper and a generous amount of food left from the previous owners – delightful.
And above is a similar angle with the first item on our “in the meantime” kitchen to – do list complete. The next project on the list is to paint the furniture piece I plan on placing under the floating cabinets on the other side of the room. The colour of the below picture is a more accurate illustration of how the room looks in person. We have to replace the yellow bulbs in all of the lights in this house. They’re awful. But back to the furniture piece. It’s going to go right under those cabinets. I’m hoping that it will help balance the room a little bit better and make those uppers look a little less out of place.Do you remember the chest of drawers the previous owners left behind in their son’s room? Well, I’m taking advantage of their laziness and making it over for this space. Yay for free furniture! In case you don’t remember what it looked like, here it is.I will be removing the mirror, painting the wood and replacing the hardware. And I’ve already picked and bought the paint! Stay tuned for all of the details.
