Hey. . . I am right here! I can hear you; don't talk about my cabinet color that way!
I do not in any way have permission from the hubs to paint my cabinets. His response?
No na-na-no-no-no. NO. And no.
So you're telling me it's a no, then?
See, the hubby and my dad have this thing about real wood:
it's to be stained. Not painted; stained. And once you do paint, there's just no going back. Am I right?
Anywho, I love open kitchen shelving. Looove. And I love white dishes. Which I've been collecting.
And besides my beloved white dishes, I have thee amazing shelves o'
I'm not lying to you.
Badly organized, looks like someone hucked crap in there and slammed the doors on it, junk.
So, I have this cabinet, all by itself.
It's a loner, Dotty. A rebel.
And so I thought to myself: "self, just try out an open cabinet. See if you like it. Just try."
And so I did. Took those doors right off.
Got to the kitchen, rearranged some things,
and now we can certainly party with the Haitians.
(name that movie)
And I liked it. But I felt like it could be. . . more. It needed that little sumthin' sumthin'. And you just know a project isn't complete without molding in this house. I know you were surprised by that. You wouldn't have been more surprised if you woke up with your head sewn to the carpet, than you are right now.
I'm sorry. I am really into movie quotes today.
So, first things first:
I felt like it needed some new backing. Something fresh. New. And something to hide that giant gap my cabinet has.
You know, to kind of match the spice shelves on the opposite wall.
Traded in those maple shelves for some white bull-nosed MDF ones:
And. . . molding. Will there be molding?
Will I eat the rest of that pizza in the fridge for breakfast tomorrow?? Um, yeah.
Some paint, and then assembling dishes in there for the maximum earthquake damage potential,
and I'm callin' her done.
And maybe my phony plastic croissants and cheese are a little much.
(Note to anonymous: I'm not asking for your opinion.)
I'm seeing a goblet rack to go underneath in this cabinet's future.
