Here's the start (after the taping and spackling!) -- beautiful yellow paint, which Kate called the color of lemon yogurt. We did the half-wall pictured here, and the wall behind the fridge, at the backsplash and along the side. I don't have the things on the wall yet -- I'm being pretty careful before I put nails into my fresh paint! But I'm looking to put a shelf for my teapot collection above the microwave soon enough. And, by the sink I'll probably put back my rack with the Hall crocus collection.
Best of all, it was a great day, topped off my an intermission -- Kate's husband Mike made terrific spaghetti and it was the perfect break.
Here is the sink corner (where the Hall collection will go) after painting (Why didn't I clean it up first?!)
Sunday I hit Home Depot -- bought new trashcans and clean white switchplates! Then I started putting things back. Being an over-clutterer (and not necessarily liking it!) I am trying to be careful and not do that!
Such a nice time and good job done! Thanks, Kate!
