Last night I had 3 hours of sleep in a row and felt positively rejuvenated :) I got up bright and early and got to work.
I started by painting the ceiling and installing a new light fixture. The ceiling paint is a very light blue, barely noticeable.
Next, I cut the bamboo blind down to fit into the frame rather than outside the frame. I should have done this a long time ago, it’s made such a difference. Before it was too small for the window and I had it sort of centered, but it was weird. See what I mean?
After trying out a lot of different paint colours, I settled on French Silver by ICI paints. It is blue during the day and grey during the night, love it. I had some repairs to do to the walls, so it nearly took me all day just to get a coat of paint on.
I framed out the new pantry door and added a handle to match the cabinets.
This is the eat in area. My daughter pleaded with me not to remove the chalkboard wall and although I’m tired of it, she isn’t. I picked up some wrought iron and wicker chairs for $10 each. They work better in this space than my old chairs.
I have a few teapots that I adore, so I decided to display them together.
The tiling is next and it’s going to look smashing! I hung a couple of pieces up on nails to see what it is going to look like.
It’s coming together.
Still to do. Install the tile. Paint all of the baseboards. Get a new panel made at the end of the dishwasher as the old one is now too small, after removing so many layers of flooring. Install the same flooring in the dining room.
Oh, and clean up this mess!!!!
I hope you are having a great weekend!
