Remember this kitchen?
What a mess...
Well, we cleaned this kitchen up and painted and primed it before we moved in, but we just tackled the final paint job and other odds and ends this weekend. Steve painted the ceiling first.
The prior owners left us an abundance of paint. We went through it and salvaged all that could be salvaged. Steve combined like with like so we have plenty of paint for ceilings, hallways, etc.
Look at all this paint and joint compound! Hundreds of dollars worth of home improvement items!
After Steve finished the ceiling, Jennifer touched up the wood with stain. It's not perfect now, but it looks so much better!
There used to be a table attached to the side of this cabinet but we took it out due to the need for space. Look at Steve's finish job - beautiful!
After miscellaneous trimming we opened up our yellow wall paint. :)
First little bit on and Jennifer was giddy...loving that bright, warm color!
Steve is the master trimmer. He can balance anywhere....
The yellow is better, yes?!
Painting left the kitchen a mess for a few days and it felt so good to put all this stuff back. Our kitchen is vital to peacefulness in our house (good meals, coffee, tea).
Steve smartly waited to do the second coat of floor paint till after we finished the ceiling and walls.
And here the kitchen is all put back together! Flora and Bounder are fans.
The view from the dining room shows the orange, red, yellow all together. Love it!
Antique towel rack, dish towel and door. We left the door with chipped paint...it's very Country Living or shabby chic. :)
We found a few antique wall pockets in our house here and hung them in our kitchen with others Steve's mom gifted to us.
This is where the built in table used to be; we put Steve's jelly cabinet there with all our grains and homegrown herbs. The two crocks hold potatoes and onions.
Jennifer's parents gifted us this pot rack for Christmas; the cooking station is very user friendly. Steve's oak leaf carving is hanging above the stove. He will add more of these (different styles) to Etsy!
Old, dirty crates are handy in the kitchen when cleaned and painted.
A new faucet too! This kitchen is happening!
We have some quarter round trimming to finish and Steve is going to make us a dough table for more prep space, but we're almost there!
