You ladies have been so sweet and supportive on my kitchen I thought I would give you a sneak peek of it.
So without further ado....
I dug up this bookcase out of the basement and gave it a new paint job and some distressing for all my cookbooks...
...and of course the countertops that I painted. The urethane is not cured for 72 hours so I can't put things on them yet. All of the beadboard is up and painted too.
A close up of the new backsplash and a couple more piggies. There is another piece of trim that goes around the top and sides but I am going to have to wait for Jeff to come home. He has a wet saw somewhere and I need it to finish it.
The eating area with the table I found awhile ago and bench. There is also a trim piece that is going across the top of all the beadboard. I was getting a little tired.
These jars sit on the counter. I did a small patch of chalkboard paint so I could mark them. I am so tired of having my oldest fill the sugar bowl with flour!
So that is it for today. Tomorrow I plan on doing the window treatments. I thought I would get to them today, but no luck! The kitchen looks soooo much bigger and cleaner now. I actually can't wait to cook in here!
P.S. I am posting this at The Nester's Risk Taking Party. I chose this post since it was something that I did to the kitchen while my husband was out of town for the week. I had talked about painting the countertops and he thought it would look like crap. The whole time that I was doing this I was afraid that I would screw something up and make him angry about it. Thank goodness he loved it!
