Kitchen project complete
The change is complete, just in time for Thanksgiving.
And after some of this …
And a little bit of Mark Twain Gray Brick …
… we’re left with this:
I decided on the galvanized lights … mostly because they were $24.99 at Lowe’s and the others were four times the price. And although initially I planned to paint these lights to look like their expensive counterparts, they would have been lost on the charcoal-colored wall. Matte silver-tone looks quite nice and I’m so happy with them. I did learn that it takes me a long time to make a decision these days. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad!
Farmguy did an awesome job on the PB-inspired wine rack. He even made a couple of extras — one holds bottles at Twigg Winery.
I do have plans for the blank wall space below the lights. If I tried to explain it would probably sound silly. So I’ll just show you a photo of my inspiration:
We love beef, we eat beef, we work at Certified Angus Beef, so why not a cuts chart on the kitchen wall, right? I’m not planning on the words, just the cuts and their names. I think it will be cool. (And bonus, it will help the kids remember for future 4-H projects!)
Now I’m off to clean for Thanksgiving. Then I’m going to arrange the tables. And come up with some fun kid crafts. Gotta keep those little people busy!
Cost of kitchen transformation:
Two gallons Sherwin-Williams Twilight Gray latex paint: $80.00
One gallon Mark Twain Gray Brick Valspar paint: 25.00
Two galvanized lights from Lowe’s: 50.00
Miscellaneous electrical supplies: 10.00
Total transformation: $165.00
That’s my kind of remodeling!
