It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted. The kitchen has been troublesome. I painted the cabinets aqua, then white, then purple. Purple looked good, but the surface at that point was too disgusting for the painted finish to look decent, and since the unit is glued in place it would torturous to sand. I wiped as much of the still wet purple off as I could, fantasized about setting the house down in the back yard and setting fire to it, then walked away, closing my studio door behind me.
Eventually I came up with a solution I was sure wouldn't work, but it did.
This is nothing more than a piece of cardstock, with the doors drawn on with a fineliner, and some subtle shading done with a promarker.
Now I can move on. My next decision is whether to install a faux tile backsplash under the open shelves that aren't there yet. I think I'll go to my favorite rocky beach today to think about it.
Speaking of beaches.....the Tropical Beach House is now a Spanish centerfold. :)
There is a lengthy article featuring in-progress pictures from this blog. I'll have to have my daughter's bestie over for dinner so she can read it to me.
