I planned to fix our kitchen this summer. It´s the only room we haven´t painted since we bought this house three years ago. I almost made it. At least I started it. So this is what you get to see for now. I painted one wall black (after removing the dado) and the others white. I´ve changed the 28 handles and I am quite happy about the simplicity. Now I will try to spice up the old lamp which came with the house. And get my String pocket on the wall. I think it will be a perfect, cheap fix. I´ve spent more time in the kitchen cooking lately! I like nice rooms. "Just wait and see when it´s all done" I tell my boyfriend. Trying to get some help with what´s left to do.
