I had posted some photos of things in our kitchen that I liked, and the delightful DeeDahLahDeeDah remarked how large the room seemed, so I figured I’d shared what it looked like when we moved in and what it looks like now, with a little paint and some scrubbing …
As you can see, in the photo, for the love of god, there were blue mother**king sponge-painted walls and a freakin’ chair rail. Also, what I politely called a Porn Lamp above where a table might sit. I went an olive green on the cabinets and a sunny yellow on the walls and ripped down that stinkin’ rail.
In this picture you see more brown than should ever be in a room, as well as an old, OLD, OLD Jenn Air Downdraft stove and the skinniest fridge I’ve ever seen. We kept the stove a while until we had a gas line run to the house, but the fridge went away instantly, as did the cabinet above as the new one was ‘human’ height.
This is the other side of the room, with the old and new paint, as well as a new dishwasher and, yes, I have one, and no, I’ve never used it, a trash compacter. I have decided that since we are not, as yet, redoing the entire kitchen, I am going to buy a small wine fridge because I need wine more than I need my trash compacted.
And these last photos are the kitchen today … well, the kitchen about a month ago when I took the photos. Lighter, brighter, and with new lamps, a new gas stove, and without a freakin’ chair rail!!
There you go, Duchess Deedles.
