My Kitchen Before and After!







Remember the Polish pottery I got at the thrift store a bit ago? I've finally found a way to display it! The floral kitchen look was fun while it lasted, but with all our other stuff around, it looked very "busy" and could use a good update anyway. Well, here it is! And what a dusty job that was. My house is *relatively* clean, but jobs like wiping down all the windowframes and cleaning under the microwave during the painting process were a bit... humbling. It took me all morning to complete most of the painting, and a good part of the afternoon hanging stuff and touching up the edges. *whew* Patrick paid me the highest compliment when he told me that the look is so country rustic that he will have to look out the window frequently to be sure he's not in the countryside. :)

  1. Great job! I love it. When we decided to get rid of our wallpaper and paint our apartment a few years ago I found out that it is a LOT of work, especially when trim is involved.

    I am highly impressed that you tackled that by yourself!

  5. LOVE! I am painting today too. I took off the motion detector in the living room and the wall is marred. I thought about painting everything a new color... just decided I don't have the energy. So, I am painting two walls... the exact same color. Anjou Pear by SW.
