When we traded our huge builder grade mirror for two wooden framed mirrors Kurt made for me, I knew I would have to do some repainting. Before we moved in, we painted the bathroom walls a warm muddy gray to hold us over until we could fully tackle the room decor later. I loved the color of the walls, but with everything else white, the room felt boring… boring, that is, until your eyes rested on our awesome mirrors (thanks babe ;))
After transforming our kitchen by painting the oak cabinets, I turned my efforts towards our builder grade, fake wood master bathroom cabinets. Now, as you know, Kurt and I don’t like to spend money where it isn’t needed so I used quite a few supplies that had been purchased previously for other projects.
Let me just start out by saying I hate Oak cabinets. I’m sorry if I offend some of you with that statement, but they just aren’t my style. And, frankly, in the words of the latest and not-so-greatest Bachelor, Juan Pablo, “Eees Okay!”
I knew immediately when we stepped foot into the house, before we even bought it, that we would be refinishing the kitchen cabinets. Don’t get me wrong, they were BEAUTIFUL wooden cabinets, but their yellowish luster really dated the house even though it was only 8 years old!
For our first Christmas as newlyweds, my awesome husband found me an amazing rustic china hutch on Craigslist.com for $175. This hutch has been a beautiful addition to the dining room in our house however there has always been a corner I was less satisfied with.
I wanted a tall skinny hutch to fill the small space and help bring the room all together. Once I told Kurt that’s what I wanted for Christmas the hunt was on.
We spent our first weekend of home-ownership painting. Unfortunately, the previous owners had some questionable taste in wall color.
