I decided to do a few things a bit out of my comfort zone this time. I decided to paint the back-splash between cabinets all the way around AND paint the actual cabinets. I kinda hated to paint the cabinets because hubby and I both love natural wood, but they were needing something washable and I knew I just wasn't up to refinishing the poor old things. Several of the cabinet doors have broken & been glued together, so really, paint is the best thing. I picked a brown hoping it wouldn't be too much of a change for us. I also detest fly specks, so I was NOT painting anything white. I know it's not a norm, but brown is what I decided.
My dad asked why not just do camo wallpaper? Well, wallpaper is WAY too expensive. I haven't seen any on sale around here in YEARS and it's not something I'm comfortable buying online. But, I do really kinda like the idea. I love outdoorsy things, even though I'm a homebody and don't get outside much, I like things inside to remind me of things outside... without the wind, dirt, bugs, pollen... Okay, I'm a wimpy country girl. LOL
So, you have a peak here of "before" (see how yucky!) and the priming process (oldest is helping). Hopefully we'll be done in a few days & I can post "after" pictures next week. Wish me well! zzzzz......
My favorites from last week are:
