Remember where we started?
The kitchen is SO much brighter. And I'm so glad it's DONE.
I still need to get knobs, but I've been without them for a year so that's no big deal.
|It's all done and turned out great!|
|Just a reminder of what it used to look like.|
|Now, much better. Still, those yellow countertops...|
|Here's where we started.|
|Uncovered this groovy wallpaper behind the mirror.|
|Painted the countertops and the vanity.|
|We'll see how it holds up. I painted the countertop with Aged Copper spray paint and then several coats of polyurethane. I'll be surprised if it doesn't get chipped by the kids, but it really couldn't be much worse than the red so I didn't have anything to lose.|
|But once I got to this point, I needed help.|
|I wish I knew more about electrical stuff, but I don't and didn't feel like figuring it out. This is where the fluorescent light above the sink went, and where I'll hang a pretty pendant light.|
|I also couldn't hold the drywall and screw it in place by myself.|
