Painting Project


As I waited for big sexy hair I pondered what I could do to sex-ify my old as all hell basement kitchen. We live in Marc's Nana's basement as a favor to our family, and a favor to our finances, so we take what we can get!



Then I thought. Gold.



Then I thought, wow I'm smart.




Than I thought, lordy I need to clean up those nasty black lines, but look at how awesome that gold and blue looks....



Then I thought, crap I hope we don't get in trouble.



Then I thought who cares.. I like it!


I should have taken a before picture, but the door was white and had old yellow grease stains on it I couldn't get out NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRIED which was not from me, I might add. To begin with the cupboards were five different shades (aqua, white, yellow, 1970's era dark wood, and orange) the colors didn't even make sense as only a few things were colored a certain way! At first, I hated what I had done and Marc didn't particularly enjoy it, but I like it now! What do you think? Tell me the truth!

Now look at my teeth almost a year in braces, can i just say how in PAIN I was in the first picture?!




Before...










After...

I think what you did in the kitchen looks AWESOME--very creative!

And braces suck--I had them for 5 years! But I'm sooo glad I did, because they're worth it.

That door looks sweet. I love that shade of blue and one day when I own a place I will have at least one wall of it. And the gold stencil is genius. I had braces in 2nd grade.. which you may notice is MUCH younger than most people have them. It was awful. I had a horrific under-bite (I looked like a bulldog) and was told that if I waited til later I'd have to have surgery. So I endured them for about a year. I should also mention that 2nd grade is the year when most children begin losing their baby teeth. I lost 2 with braces on (had to go to the dentist when they fell out because they were still attached to the braces). Then when they removed the braces ALL the rest of them came out at the same time. Okay, it wasn't all of them, but it was like 9 teeth in a matter of 2 or 3 weeks. Sucked. Okay, that's enough of that. Love you girly! Props on your sexy kitchen door.
