Although I’ve been busy quilting lately, I don’t have permission to share photo’s, so it’s been quiet here on the blog. And the art pieces I’m working on are for another Art on Main showing in August and not yet ready for public viewing.
But, we have started a project I can share! The dungeon kitchen is getting a facelift!!!! No more will it be a dark dreary corner of the house:
That photo is a before photo of one of the darker corners of the kitchen, taped and ready to paint, with ALL the lights on to brighten it up!
This is what it’s looking like after just the first coat:
MAJOR DIFFERENCE!!!! I am going to love this on so many levels. First I’m a sunshine/bright days kind of girl, I don’t like caves! No, you’d never find me living in one of those built into the hillside underground houses (shuddering here at the thought). And of course, if your walls aren’t BLUE, you can decorate with all sorts of different colors and shades and accessories!!!! Without walking into the dungeon kitchen and going on sensory overload at the loud noise the clash of certain decor items makes with the walls!!!!
Hmmm….. this new kitchen might even inspire me to start seriously cooking!!!! Okay, I won’t go that far, but you already knew that!!!
Of course, you shouldn’t expect this done quickly. I learned the last time I painted that it pays to take your time, don’t do too much in one day, especially when you’re painting over your head, as you just might want to be able to lift your arm again before a few months time passes. My goal for this is to be done in two weeks…….. a little at a time…. working on it in the evenings after work and on the weekends…… surely even I can do that!!!!
