If you were following my blog before Christmas, you probably got to the see the madness of our unplanned Kitchen Makeover!
Though I didn’t think we were going to make it through that renovation at times, we finally made it! Literally just a few days before Christmas.
When we got finished right before Christmas, we didn’t have any energy left to do anything else! We were wiped out!
One of the little things we left undone was putting the shelves back in the cabinets by our microwave.
I just put a few things in each cabinet and called it a day. As you can see, I have never really decorated the space above the microwave since Christmas either.
Part of the reason I didn’t fool with putting the shelves back in is because I couldn’t find them! I thought maybe Cy thought they were scrap wood and threw them away in all the chaos of our renovation.
I went to Lowe’s and bought some wood to make new shelves for the cabinets. Then I thought I would check in the “basement” of our guest house (where we were storing the other cabinets that we took down in our kitchen) and see if there were some shelves I could borrow from them.
To my surprise, I found the four missing shelves for these two cabinets! We had never taken them down to our house in the first place!
All I had to do was prime the shelves with Kilz Spray Primer and then paint them with white spray paint!
It feels so good to get these shelves finally in place and to have some extra storage.
Why did it take me so long to get this done?
Do you have any “little” projects left undone in your home? What are they? What’s stopping you from doing them?
(besides time, money, energy) hee.hee.
MY NEXT PROJECT: We still have to make little open shelves below these two cabinets to hold my cookbooks and spices. I am hoping to get that finished when I get back from SNAP!
I am also hoping to finish my sister’s laundry room. I’ve been waiting for her to buy some more paint, but she keeps forgetting or something! That stinker!
Why don’t you go visit my sister’s blog and give her hard time. Tell her to get busy and go get me some paint!
Maybe I can have an update for ya next week?!
BTW, many of you have been asking me about Jonathan’s performance at the Ky Opry this past Saturday.
It was a wonderful evening, and I took a bunch of pics to share with you.
Have a blessed day!
