|Sweet Husband in a precarious position, priming the last of the crown moulding.|
I decided on Friday that I was going to finish this kitchen this weekend, come hell or high water.
We didn't have either hell or high water, and I did get it finished. I now need about a week of rest and relaxation, but Thank God it is done at long last.
|Preparing the rest of the unpainted portion of the breakfast nook.|
|After a spill (by SH) of primer onto my slipcover and some testy exchanges over same, the slip went into the wash and the dropcloth went over the sofa.|
|Primed and ready to paint. My job.|
|Late Saturday night, the walls and woodwork are all done.|
|The furniture is piled out of the way in the adjoining LR.|
|So happy to see this painted overhead. It took so long! |
Being ordered to stay off the ladder really kept progress at a snail's pace.
|Time to put stuff back where it belongs.|
Notice that we now have a TV overhead.
The kitchen has become a favorite hang-out spot.
|Nice clean, paint-free slipcover, and some new padding, which is actually old pillows and duvets in the cushion!|
|Disgusting yukky old tile and grout!|
|Nice whitewashed tile and grout.|
Don't know how long it will hold up, but anything would be an improvement.
|Painted the backboard of the new addition above the oven stack black --|
think I 'll do the other one over the hutch, which is currently dolled up for Fall, before I
put Christmas up there.
Wish I had a light up there. Hmmmmm....
Next time, I will have everything fluffed and puffed, the furniture put back, maybe even a little tablescape, so I hope you will come back to see me.
I am joining a couple of blog parties, so please visit these hosts and see what else is going on.
P.S. I got myself a blog button -- up there at the top on the right. Please feel free to do whatever you do with these things!
