I wish I had before pictures of our kitchen… from four years ago when we got the house. There was orange brick half way up the wall, faux wood tiles, a naked lady oil lamp and stenciled birds and hearts all over! Ugly. Nightmare.
We had recessed lights sitting in the boxes in the closet since we bought our house. Hubster and I finally decided it was time to get them into the ceiling. It took him several nights to accomplish what would’ve taken him one, when he realized that our house originally had a flat roof and he have to cut through the tar. After we got all the lights installed, he swirled the kitchen ceiling and took the light fixture and switched it with the old bubble in the hallway. Way to go Hubster!!
Recently I’ve decided to paint the stark white trim a chocolate brown. Above the sink there was a wooden scroll, and we cut it down the make the bottom on the cabinet flat, painted it, and added stemware racks. We also cut out the bottom shelf of the cabinet above the stove and replaced it was a hanging microwave.

We have a far way to come in our house. Mmm. Chocolate paint in the kitchen? I’d always want to eat chocolate! How did it turn out?
It’s still in progress…
