Painted kitchen

Bungalow blogging catch-up. Not using complete sentences to try to bang out a post. Painted my kitchen last weekend. Big deal because I’ve only finished painting a room once in five years ago. (I painted the living room before I moved in back in December 2006; the bathroom has been half-painted for a few years.)

So I got the new range (for which I need a wiring fix for it to be fully functional). I cleared out a bunch of the shelving/portable furniture I had added to make up for the tiny galley kitchen’s lack of counters and cabinets. The paint and clearing of space has refreshed what had been a depressing symbol of the futility of my efforts with this house (which in itself is a symbol of all sorts of other futility.)

A brief history of my kitchen below. I had to go digging to find a picture of the kitchen pre-move-in. I remember now how pics from that time were on a flashcard or SD card that had been corrupted, and the recovery process had been tedious and only half-effective. But I digress…

October 2011 – painted and (mostly) decluttered though you can’t really tell from all the dishes that need to be put away

Geez, it takes a good half-hour to create a blog post when the photos aren’t all up on Flickr already and the photos are on two different cameras.

  1. looking good! i’m about to send you an email about our container store adventures, but i think it would be really cool to get some slim racks to hold your pots and save your precious cabinet space for things that wouldn’t look as cool fixed to the wall 🙂 we should make a trip together to brainstorm and then buy them somewhere else since the container store prices are ridiculous.
