My schedule for this week was kitchen but we aren't actually going to Ikea for the bottom sink cupboards until Saturday so ...
It has been over a decade that I have wanted to repaint the basement landing. My seven, soon to be eight, year old grandson came for a long visit. He is a helper so what should we tackle??? He likes to paint. That landing!
And after he left I had a new helper, my youngest grand daughter, Jolina, 3. That border is another stash find.
I may need to let that paint cure a bit more to get that old wall paper border to stick. I am kind of impatient. :(
I diluted the original caramel for the top and then ran the rest on the old cement. I figured it'll stick considering a happy face one of the kids slapped on the cement lasted forever! lol Now if I can resist buying new colour coordinated brooms... ;^)
The caramel paint was actually meant for this hutch as I was to repaint it cranberry and the back board a gold. Decided to leave it the natural wood but I did go back later and repaint it old white. I also found some better door pulls than the stark black I had. Looks great with all the white dishes and stuff I collect.
I am sure luving the simpler look to my kitchen. I have decided classic items and timeless colours are way better than trendy items and fads. That is a KISS!
I see my assistant added her Hello Kitty glass to the shoot! :)
So all in the interest of having a pretty blog post...
One landing made acceptable.
One can of paint and a wall paper border used up and out of the basement 'stash'! I luv the benefits!!!
Boy, you really put those kids to work! Great job...
KISS is working really well. I do like your fresh new paint and your cupboard filled with classic whet dishes. Fun times with the Littles!
Oh, your kitchen.....happy sigh!
