Sunday Superdad did some caulking so we could finish the little bit of painting that was left in the kitchen and after it had dried I did the rest of the painting so the PAINTING is finished! *insert happy dance here*
I’m totally loving the new color and it makes me want to eat a delicious mango every time I walk into my kitchen! Note to self, buy mangos at next grocery store visit. We have a few things to do to be completely finished but at least the painting, the major part, is over. We have been unable to find a replacement grill for the exhaust fan that is original to the house and that’s been a bummer because we have looked and researched and looked some more.
I drew up a sketch so we can make our own from wood and paint it the color of the walls and make it blend in much better if it were a cream color anyway. We so will build one, more like Superdad will have to saw and hammer all the wood together and then I can paint it for us. Voila! Then there’s a huge open space above the stove that needs something. I was looking at decorative plates to hang there but I’m in no rush for the “eye candy” just yet because I don’t see it as a necessity. I will also buy some new rugs that will match down the road along with a new glass cover for the ceiling fan.
It will come together one day.
Here’s a before picture of my tiny kitchen:
