This weekend we finally took down the cupboard that has been bugging me for 7 years – why do I never do these things sooner? I can’t believe how much more spacious the kitchen feels and how much lighter the room is in general. The wall needs a bit of filler and love, but it should be fine to put the new shelves on – which is great as I had images of all the plaster coming down with the cupboard!
Here’s the before:
What it currently looks like after taking down the right hand cupboard and with the newly painted cupboard doors – new sink and worktop to come:
One of the fantastic finds behind the cupboard was this 1940’s/50’s wallpaper turns out it’s 1980’s so now not feeling bad about ditching it!
Very glam for a kitchen wasn’t it?
So this week will be stripping off the awful backing paper that’s on the walls, filling holes and then covering the walls with Acrylic White Primer. Then I can decide what colour to paint the walls, cream, white or pale green?? I’m just keeping these images in my head, and hoping I end up with something half as lovely.
