South side Kitchen cabinets done.


Hello everyone!

So, I have FINALLY finished the south side. I'm sure there are those of you out there that are saying... "well, why didn't you just do the whole kitchen?" Well, let me tell you. I have to do this in small spurts or I will go CA-RAAAAZYYYYY! It drove me absolutely bonkers to have all my dishes scattered around the dinning room and kitchen! The next set of cabinets I'll be working on will be the west side of the kitchen and those have all my baking ingredients and paraphernalia in them. I'm not sure how I'm going to manage having all those things scattered around!

Anyhow... It's not really too much of a change. But it will do until we can do our total kitchen renovations in a few years.

Before




After



I really like the way the back of the shelf wall turned out.



I still would have liked the beadboard look better but this will work for now.



This is the south side of my kitchen.


It still looks rather old and tired. But if you could have seen the shelves up close you'd have seen how REALLY old and tired they looked. Now at the least the paint perked it up somewhat and it looks clean. I think I can live with this for two and a half more years. One thing is for sure. It was alot easier to cut the wallpaper for the back of the shelves then it would have been to cut wood (bead board)!

Tomorrow, I'll show you how far I've gotten on my socks. (No, I have not finished them yet!)

Hope ya'll have a great day!
