This weekend we worked on painting and putting up open shelving in the kitchen, well really it was all done on Sunday believe it or not. We were only going to take down the old cabinet box that I took the doors off a while ago and put up some open shelves……… well it turned into a bigger project so we painted while we had the mess. It needed to get done anyways but we had no idea it was going to be this past weekend. LOL See things seem to happen like that around here, last minutes things that seem simple turn into a project.
This is what I had before………
We took that down…..
Made wall repairs…….
Then painted……. of course hubby made the new shelves and now we have THIS…..
I just love how the open shelves opened up our small kitchen even more. Also the added light color helped as well. Now the color is the same that we have in our living room that we just painted in Nov. I loved that green, still do but part of me is really glad it is gone.
The molding on the right side of the shelves still needs to get done as hubby has to make something for it that will match the other side molding.
We also added the bead board to the bar area making it easier to keep clean with the kids and all. Really shows off the Mahogany bar that my hubby made a while ago.
I do have to say that I am so truly blessed to have a hubby as handy and creative as mine is, we would never be able to afford all these changes if we had to pay someone to do them for us.
Tonight we are working on getting up our coffee bar shelves, this way we can keep it all in one area of the kitchen. Right now the coffee pot is kind of lost…….
I am still unsure what to do with the space over the kitchen table…….
I guess I will put back my iron thing but I was also thinking about my old window that might look good hung on the wall. Just not sure yet, stay tuned I am sure it will happen soon. LOL You can always follow me on my INSTAGRAM to see what I am up to on any given day. LOL
Well thanks for stopping in to see my current updates, I will post more pics once the coffee area is done. I am hoping soon I can get more house tour pics once the weather gets back to being sunny.
I hope you all have a blessed day….. Leave me a comment and let me know what you have been working on lately? I would really love to hear from you all.
