The finishing touches...

The finishing touches are scheduled for May. The painter is scheduled, and the drapery panel should be complete. This should just about do it for the big changes, but I do have a few straggling things lingering.

When I replaced my appliances I removed the microwave and had a hood installed. That move has left me with a back splash hole. I'm happy to have more lighting and I like it for that reason alone. However it's really hard to find a tile installer with such a small job.
So it has remained the eyesore that I just don't see anymore. But that's coming to an end, because I have an idea! I searched on Pinterest after thinking of a solution and found exactly what I wanted!



As you can see in the photos, by adding a stainless steel back splash and 
shelving, I can fix this problem and have some extra storage for work
tools! Problem solved.



I'd also like to cover these little beauties and refresh them with a new slip covers.
Seeing that the paint will be a fresh coat of white, and now with the warmth of the wood ceiling,
I'd like to add some color. Now if I could only find the right color...



A community garage sale is scheduled for my friends neighborhood. I'm joining her as I have purged and cleaned out every nook and cranny of this house. I love a good sale. Not to mention how organized I feel.

Have a great week,

Sharon

  1. The addition of a shelf on a stainless back splash is a great idea! So handy to have the most important things right at your fingertips. Wish I had the space for that!
