Busy working mom, just trying to juggle family and work, and constantly trying to keep God in the center of our life, and find and create balance in everyday life. I'm addicted to Diet Coke, thrift stores, and spray paint. This blog is a mix of family and amateur home decorating on the thrift. Glad you stopped by!
Sssssshhhhhhhhhh....do you hear that? I hear singing...
Is it the angels singing??
I think it is...but they aren't singing hymns...
Oh I hear it now...
NA NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA
HEY HEY HEY
GOOD-BYE HONEY OAK!
Sorry for the corny intro. That's what happens when you spend all weekend in the garage.
Like I shared earlier, I've finished 2 out of 3 sections of cabinets. I'll share a tutorial at a later time. But this has been a process. I'm pretty proud of myself for really taking my time. I've even done the inside of the doors the same way...so that is why it's taking me a little longer than I thought. AND I've poly'd the front of the doors, too.
As you can see from the middle picture, I took down the quarter-round that trimmed the soffit/top of the cabinets. I think we've found some new trim that will frame it out nicely. But I'm not committed to it just yet.
If you have been following me for a bit, you are probably asking yourself, 'where is the beadboard wallpaper? Wasn't she going to put it in the insets?' I'm so glad you asked!! (read: delirium)
The answer is yes, the original plan was beadboard wallpaper in the insets. I loved it and I was so excited about it. But I got to thinking about all my cabinets (21 doors), and thought it might be too much. I saw a picture of one kitchen, and it looked beachy--not french country. And I got skeered.
My sis-in-law Tammy who is a builder said she did a kitchen with beadboard only on the bottom cabinets. I thought about that idea, too, but played it safe and left it off the insets. But I will use it on the cabinet ends. And I figure I can always add it later if I wanted to change the look again.
So that is your sneak-peek! Let me know your thoughts! Have a great rest of the week!!!
