The old color was yellow, which is not necessarily a bad thing. But...and you knew there'd be one...we're pretty sure that it was the original paint from when the house was built in the 70's. Couple that with the soot from long time use of a wood stove, and I think you get the picture. If not, I've posted some before pictures below. :-)
|Lovely sooty yellow, isn't it?|
|Over the stove and refrigerator. That shelf isn't going to make|
the final cut. ;-)
|If you're wondering why the electric outlets|
are sideways, so are we! Convenient, though,
having them so close to a water source. :-p
|This light fixture? Yeah, it's going with that shelf you saw.|
|That lovely green light hanging over the table? |
It's also not making the cut. While you're looking,
check out that floor. No, that is not an optical illusion.
We really do have two different floor tiles.
|Stunning difference, huh? Shelly rocks, no doubt about it.|
|I told you that shelf was a goner. ;-)|
|It all looks so clean. Sooty yellow never looked clean.|
|Our little dining area. Check out those open windows.|
March in northern Michigan, and we have the windows
open. Bizarre weather, but we're enjoying it!
|The new light fixture over the table. The green chandelier would have|
clashed...well, with everything.
|The matching, but much larger, light fixture over the sink.|
This one was a PITA to install, and there just might have
been some profanities uttered. OK...a lot of profanities
Until next time!
