skills come in handy, lol - almost finished now.
And I have started on my dresser
and then in the midst of this - I have decided I have to do some kind of quick mini face lift for the kitchen.
I can't look at it anymore really - and do not want to do a big change in there because I think next year we
will be relocating it entirely - we have a small office off the dining room and would like to have the kitchen
installed there - makes more sense, which is going to be major work, indeed. ( back in the day builders thought it was smart to put kitchens at the end of very very long hallways - and the dining rooms near the
front of the house which would work if you had a cook I suppose like a mini downton abbey, lol )
So have to do a little magic that does not cost too much money for now. It is very dark and dingy - and the decor is horrible - the previous owner had very peculiar taste to say the least................
I am painting the cupboards - and putting a stencil pattern on them................the walls are being
painted white - and that back splash - oh God how sickening is that, will be changed for this
|and I will have a jar of old cutlery - love it - and a spritzer bottle laying on it's side too, lol|
from Home Depot - 20.00 a panel but they are large and I don't think I need so many - I am
going to try to install these myself - hopefully it won't be so hard to do.
my next dilemma is the counters, they also have that sickening orange tile on them ( I refuse to
call them terracotta ) what can I do on the cheap? I was thinking of a granite tile perhaps.
Or even a laminate of some type - they are usually a good price - and at this point anything
would be better than what is there - a sheet glued on would look better - astro turf would
look better - a pc of plywood - anything except those tiles - I am crazy enough to have a slab
of quartz installed even if just for a year - but I have to stop doing things like this - it's just plain
stupid and a complete waste of money ( still - the thought is very very appealing to me and if
it wouldn't cause world war 3 I think I would )
and if that wasn't enough on my plate I have started working on this too!
the top of this piece had tack paper all over it - with that faux grain wood, lovely.
have peeled it off -
when I say I am out of control - I mean I AM OUT OF CONTROL - nuts -
and ready for a vacation.
