The plasterers came in and worked their magic (oh the joy of smooooooth walls!!) and we started to take apart the damaged and old units. Our idea was to reuse the original solid oak doors and update them with fresh paint and new handles and make the units solid and secure…thrifty eh?!
Jumping forward a few weeks to early December and after alot of hard work our kitchen is complete! Mellow sage cupboards and chalk white walls make the room look much more spacious, and the wall tiles which were a bit of a splurge (and from Italy) and the slate floor tiles bring the look together.
I would really like to thank my folks and my dear partner for all the help they gave in creating this beautiful little room – anyone who knows me knows how much I enjoy cooking and baking delicious things and now I have a gorgeous place to do it in!!
Our little house has been a work in progress since we bought it 3 years ago, its over 125 years old and there has been a heap of decorating disasters to overcome! Our next major project is our lounge/dining room which we will begin next year…its time to kick back now and enjoy the Christmas season with family and friends now the hard work is over!
This isn’t an art related post as such, but I wanted to share what we did with you here. I feel that this blog is evolving quite organically to encompass other areas of my life where creativity spills over – be it kitchen makeovers or fresh batches of deliciously decorated cupcakes, inspired inspiration doesn’t just belong to paint and canvas, it appears marvellously in the ordinary areas of our lives and I think its wonderful to be able to put that stuff out there.
Sending you spiced, heart warming mugs of mulled wine and fresh mince pies…come on, its Christmas time and you know you want to!
