So, now, instead of at least having doors to cover the utter mess, (they were off waiting to be painted ). The chaos that was the inside of my cabinets reined supreme, every time we walked into that space it was like a slap in the face. Like having a rock in my shoe for the last 3 months, it has been really bothering me, but I’ve just been too busy.
That is until Thursday night, last week. I was putting Etta down for bed and I have some time to just think. I realized I actually had the energy and desire (all at the same time WOW!) to actually work on a BIG project, and because of the snow Justin had a long weekend… So, I came down and Justin asked What do you want to do?… (I love you Honey)
We put on our paint clothes (note to self show you a picture of those… they are pretty
trashed HOT) We dusted off the paint brushes and started painting…. We are not quite done, but I am actually determined to finish, AND organize the space sometime this decade, and it is looking so good that it is making me want to work. Here is a little bit of what we accomplished. Oh and please don’t judge me on the state of the cabinet interiors, floors, shelf organization… I promise, when the room is finished that they will be organized and beautified! But for now people, it is just a true MESS! to quote the rest of the blog world… here is to keepin’ it real!
First one of the doors was crushed and cracked. Justin glued and clamped that baby right back together good as new and patched it within an inch of it’s life. But now, you can’t even tell. Now that is the power of paint! We lightly sanded it all, but focused our sanding on where they would be most handled.
The very latest news? Officially, last night I was struck with a great idea for the pantry shelves, it may take some time yet to finish this project, but it will happen! Just wait…. More to come later!
