Does anyone remember that song? Muppets? Now it is lodged in my brain. Grrr…
I am sure my friends on Facebook are getting pretty sick of me by now but it has only just begun! Actually, just by the one-liner updates it is hard to decipher whether we are building a house or a lame porno! First I had a hole, now we have wood, and so on. tee hee It really is pretty easy to entertain me lately, think 5th grade.
Check out my wood. Yeah, it looks small here but in person it makes a big impression. tee hee
In other news… my backsplash is D-O-N-E!!! My loving and ever encouraging *ahem* husband really loved it too. No joke. Probably because it turned out exactly just as I had planned. It is the same lovely color as the kitchen sink and all the painstaking labor made it appear that I changed the color of the grout as well. Is that even possible? Sounds like a pain in the arse. I would have just started from scratch but I didn’t have to. It worked out just fine the way I did it. Now look at some pics. Don’t judge. I am no photographer and we actually live here.
You remember where I left off, right? This is washed, sanded, and primer/painted with two coats.
Here I am mid-way, washing over it to help relieve some of the “bright white” issue.
Yes. I know. All of you who are actually good with a camera, who happen upon this page. I know things always look better when you don’t use your flash but there was hardly enough light in that spot and I do not have all the time in the world to navigate my Photoshop program that my super cool sister (who is an actual photographer) gave me to use. Get over it.
Here is a little close up of the wall behind the stove. Remember? Check out the before HERE. See? Much better.
Ta da! Hey… don’t snicker at the ghetto stove! I happen to love it.
…Footloose and fancy free…
