The preceding was an unpaid public service announcement
My friend and bidness partner, Kris, told me I should intersperse my posts about old work I've done with my new projects. So much for trying to skate by on past accomplishments. Boy, she doesn't let me get away with nothin'.
Today, I will share with you guys what I worked on yesterday with my buddy Lissette.
In order to keep my mental health, I need playmates to share my project victories and defeats. Down here in Florida, I am lucky enough to have three; Lissette, Helene and Joanie. Sometimes I play with one at a time, sometimes two, and very rarely three.
Yesterday, Lissette and I attacked her kitchen with something I have wanted to do for a year, and Helene was more than happy to put her two cents in.
I have wanted to take the doors off some of her kitchen cabinets for an open shelf effect.
Here is the before!!!!!!!
Two years ago Lissette took down the wall of her weird pantry closet and opened the space to the kitchen. Our friend, Nika, who lives behind Lissette, was redoing her kitchen, and gave Lisette these two base and wall cabinets. I drew up the addition of the little open shelves, which Lissette then had added to the wall cabinets. She kept a small part of the pantry closet, and had a small door made that opened into it. Lissette had the great idea to have a glass door with the word Pantry etched onto it. I helped her pick out the font, and added the lines around the outside of the glass. The only reason I am telling you all this, is to make sure she doesn't forget, and start to think that she was the one who did the final design.
So, anyway, last year at about this time, I started pushing to take the doors off the wall cabinets. It is soooooo annoying when people don't take my ideas the moment they fall like pearls from my mouth.
I mean, come on, it was a good idea.
HERE'S THE WAY IT LOOKED WHEN WE WERE DONE!!!!!!
I took this picture today, and I just noticed some of the plates on the bottom right are missing.
I can't believe they had the nerve to start using this stuff!!!
Here's a shot with the lights on, I can't decide which picture is better...
I definitely like the first one better, thanks for helping me decide.
We're thinking about taking a page from Amy at Maison Decor, and using the bead board wallpaper at the back of the cabinets, and painting it a color.
Now we'll fight for another year on what that color will be.
