So it’s been a long time since I have shared something that I have been up to at home. It has been a whirlwind these last few months. We moved into a really swell (keen, nobby, smooth, or some other 1930s slang for great) 1930s farmhouse back in April and we have been working hard getting it togged to the bricks. So in between doctor appointments for hubs and teaching school and landing my new gig as a learning coach and being a wife and mama I have been working like a dog. Needless to say I am joed! But today, I feel like I can say I am finally seeing a difference in the kitchen.
After five layers of wallpaper have been scraped, unsolved mysteries have been found (Why is that pink and turquoise paint there? A piece of plywood right in the middle of the wall? Huh?) and multiple coats of paint have been applied, I can finally say it’s getting there. I would have taken more pictures along the way, but I am a messy painter for sure! I don’t trust my paint covered hands to get anywhere near my camera during the process. (Anyone else choke up on their paintbrush like they are playing ball? I feel like that’s how I have the best control.) But… I do have a really smooth before and after picture to show you today at least.
Here is the kitchen front door when I met it for the first time:
Here is the door now… and the surrounding walls after scraping and scraping and painting and painting:
I’m really starting to get sweet on this place! Now the molding, and we need to do something about that floor… don’t ya think? And one day… the cabinets.
Enjoy the Dance! ;D
