So after four long years after paying off debt, saving, and hunting for the perfect home, my husband and I finally found it. We closed on May 30th and have been working hard over the past couple weeks to make it our home. Me, being the perfectionist, wants everything to be done quickly but I have had to step by and let reality hit me in the face and realize that we have the rest of our lives to make the house perfect (or as close to it as possible).
My recent projects have included the kitchen and downstairs bathroom. I want to go on record saying I hate shelf liner. I hate it with a fiery passion. Yes, it is beautiful and yes, I wanted it very badly but it was not "easy liner" as described on the packaging.
I was not anticipating how many cabinets and drawers I was going to have to do either. In our old kitchen, we had very limited storage. Now, we have a lot more (I actually have empty cabinets for the time being...can you believe it?!?). Two days later, I still did not have the shelf liner finished. It kept causing problems like not sticking or sticking to me or I ran out (three times). Whoever replaced the cabinets in the kitchen put the shelves upside down (cannot be easily fixed) so the grainy part is on the top and the smoother part is on the bottom. This proves very difficult when trying to stick shelf liner onto the shelf. However, finally, after a few tears of frustration, I gave in and got the rubber kind (in a brown to match, of course) and it has worked thus far. In conclusion, I dislike shelf liner very much and I need to do it in my closets and I am just not going to fool with it right now.
So then begins my mission of painting. I knew exactly what color I wanted in my kitchen. I wanted a turquoise/teal color and I am happy to say it turned out great. I am going to use coral accents in it.
I should have taken a picture of the whole kitchen but I forgot and I don't feel like getting up to do so right now. Just trust me...the color is great.
Until next time.....
