I’ve been getting some requests for kitchen makeover status so I took a couple snapshots for you. I even climbed up on a ladder in my jammies. Whatchyu think?
I know what I think: RAD. Well I still have some work to do, so . . . ALMOST RAD. Everything used to be white, except for the cabinets which were that hideous fake wood – with the jadeite and milk glass and pink plates, it was way too cutesy in here. So I painted it all a deep navy and added a white border to the drawers for fun and bought those awesome vintage pulls on ebay. I need longer screws for the drawer pulls, but I’ll get them up sooner or later (after brightening them to more of a gold finish). I also made that valance and did some fancy stuff to the bamboo shade, but I’ll tell you about that later. Oh and check out our fancy new marble counter top . . .
. . . which used to be a coffee table. *high five* I was trying really hard for white marble, but when this appeared on Craigslist in the perfect size, after weeks and weeks of searching, we jumped. And now I feel so fancy working on cool marble. It’s just sitting on our original workspace – one of those tall, stupid kitchen tables that I painted green – but it’s way bigger and way fancier. I have to repaint the table legs of course – that green looks dumb now – but overall, I think we can all agree, Keith and I are now very FANCY.
Also, we just watched an episode of The Borgias, and someone used an acorn squash to mock someone else’s flaccid penis, and dudes, now that squash on the counter looks GROSS.
