Paint and So Forth



I decided to paint the new kitchen yesterday morning.  I climbed on and off the ladder several times and I inched along the counter tops, trying to reach the high corners, and then I began to fear for my life or at least I feared a broken hip or arm and so I stopped.  I will find someone younger and taller than I to finish that taxing job.

I intend to carry on with painting other rooms once the kitchen is finished as they now all look shabby next to our new kitchen.  That’s the problem with a renovation.  The stark contrast between a beautifully finished room next to a room that hasn’t been touched in 10 years is too much to bear and so — well — you know what I’ll be doing with my spring and summer 🙂

  1. Kitchen looks great. At least you have a kitchen. We’re homeless, living with my sister… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  2. It all looks lovely, as did our smart new paint job…not quite one year ago! Very wise to find a ” juvenile acrobat” to do the awkward places!:-)

    1. I painted almost every room in our house myself about 10 years ago and I didn’t even give it a thought. No more! I do not think I can do it all alone these days. It’s good exercise but it feels a little dangerous now.

  3. Is that a picture of your actual kitchen? If so, it’s gorgeous. My house is like the Golden Gate Bridge. Both are continuously being painted throughout the year.

    1. It IS our actual kitchen. And thank you for the compliment. British kitchens are small, you know, but believe me, it’s a big improvement on the old one. And I know exactly what you mean about continual painting but I don’t know how you do it with your full house!!!

  4. I think I’ll eliminate the stark contrast between old and new and just leave everything as is. Even my peach-on-steroids kitchen. I’ll just enjoy looking at yours.
