Yipee!! The painting is done. I am loving my new kitchen colors!!
We only had a couple minor mishaps. The painters said they were done last monday, they packed up their supplies, left me a small amount of left over green and gold paint and said they had used every drop of the red. Before they went merrily on their way they told me to leave the cabinet door open for 24 to 48 hours..... so I did, I turned on the ceiling fan, closed the kitchen door and waited....
Finally the paint was dry and I closed the cabinet doors...... wait a minute, I don't remember standing on my tippy toes to open the doors above the sink.... what the heck... did I shrink? Ah ha, the doors are upside down.... well damn!! I sit down at the table to look up the contractors phone #... I glanced at the cabinets and what to my wondering eyes should appear but unpainted areas under the two cabinets next to sink and the little one by the window.... now I am really upset. Those damn painters!! And they seemed really nice to, I even talked about them doing more work for me. The undersides are primed but not painted. Remember they ran out of red paint?.... I guess if you run out of paint that means you're done.
To make a long story short, I called the contractor to register my complaint. The range hood was to be delivered on thursday...( that is another story!!)..... the contractor would come on friday to install the hood and "take care of the touchups" which he did, and now it is done. I still have to hang things on the walls and put out more of my doodads... I have lots of doodads, I like doodads.... here is how it looks now. It is so nice to cook again. There is green beans and ham hocks simmering in the pot on the stove, when they are tender I will add new red potatoes... it will be yummy!
See the white chickens in the window, for many years they sat in my grandmothers kitchen window. I was rummaging around in the attic and found them in a box, now they are in my kitchen window.
This is my granny cabinet that sits on the wall opposite the cabinets. It is dark and dreary outside, snowing yet again, so I couldn't get a very good photo. I have a long antique print that I want to hang over the granny cabinet. It will have to wait until Roger heals from a tendon injury in his shoulder.... poor old guy.
I collect vintage tins. My friend Pat thinks it is weird that I have old tin cans sitting all over my house.
I will get back to claying soon. I need to make outlet covers and fan pulls for my kitchen. Thanks for stopping by.
