Well...I have been very busy here at our
crooked little farmhouse as
I begin to do some minor reno's in the kitchen.
The upper kitchen cabinets
have been driving me crazy
(they were all hung at slightly different heights)
and none of them could be made clean
even with serious scrubbing with TSP.
So...I ripped them off the wall only
to reveal a NEW surprise to deal with!!
Who would put lino on the freakin' walls??
Not to mention...there was a huge
hole in the middle of said lino!!
Well...luckily I happened to have a box full
of scrap tongue and groove pine that
filled in the gaps quite nicely.
I then painted the kitchen in Martha Stewart 's
new paint line in a color called Lemongrass.
I opted for a semi-gloss finish as it is the kitchen
and it should wear well on these walls.
We also decided to go for open shelving
and I found the brackets at Ikea...
they are super easy to hang!!
I wish I could have found some big old
corbels instead, but these will do for now
(plus they are much more budget-friendly!!)
And yes...I know I need to finish painting
the raw end of the shelf boards!!
My hand painted GROCERY sign
and a small collection of mixing bowls look great
with my red enamelware colander!
A cool vintage looking sign with
an old ceramic canister that lost it's lid
before I claimed it to corral my utensils.
My collection of vintage graphic
coffee mugs I found for just
$2 each at Surplus Herby's
(a rather odd surplus store in my old town)
ANd even some of my own artwork
found a spot to rest next so the sugar...
isn't it sweet??
(sorry... stupid puns this early in the morning
should not be permitted!! lol)
And look who found a nifty
place to hide from the kittens!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hopefully I will finish another
project to share soon!
