Between moving and Christmas, I ran out of time! I stayed super busy through Christmas with local and online orders, and it seems I’m just now catching up! It’s been long enough that I’m not sure what I posted and what I didn’t. Most everything else really isn’t finished enough for an “after” photo, but I will show smaller projects as I can.
One thing I worked really hard on – in close quarters – was the pantry in the kitchen. The way some shelves come out to the facing and some are half shelves, it made it interesting to maneuver through for painting purposes. Some of the wood was not attached, though, so that helped the process!
Before, covered in wallpaper (this was before I purchased the house):
The wallpaper was a bit tricky but I got it (I had removed some of the shelves but remembered to take the picture before I started scraping the peeling paint):
It’s painted now! All clean and pretty white….ready for shelf lining, painting the door and changing the door knob:
The shelf liner was like finding a needle in a haystack…I wanted the red and white gingham check….it just reminded me of a picnic table cloth my family had growing up. Of course, there was only one roll and I needed wayyyy more than that for the entire kitchen. Did I mention that shelf liner rolls in large quantities is a small fortune? Yes, yes it is! This photo isn’t the greatest but hopefully you can tell how it looks:
The outside with the fresh paint and door knob, (again not a great photo as it’s night here and that’s the best I could do with my phone tonight):
The paint I used on the walls is actually a Disney color called Mickey’s Shadow and is a light color with a gray tone to it and I LOVE it next to the bright white trim. The doorknob is a satin nickel, not sure how well that’s showing up in the photo.
I would show you the inside of the pantry, but I’ll wait until my organizing is finished in there. The pantry, though, is WONDERFUL! I’ve always wanted one!
