The Happy Crazy House

remodeling and other family adventures

As seen in my previous post (click here), I painted my lowers white.  I am working on the long game for the kitchen and narrowing down my design choices for its future.  I have a lot of ideas swirling in my head and quite frankly its hard to get a grasp on all the things I want to do.  Fancy stove, restaurant style reach-in fridge, island with drink fridge, new pantry….the list is long and funds will definitely not stretch that far.  I think I should distract myself from the long game…don’t you?

Yeah!  Distraction time.

I had some left over chalkboard contact paper from the Bathroom project and I decided to use it on the inside of one upper cabinet.

turned into this

As you can see, I had a rough time cutting off the bottom edge but otherwise it was an easy install.  I then used some command hooks to secure my measuring cups.

Another contact paper project – was just your standard lining of our drawers and cabinets.

More pretty distraction!

The contact paper was an easy and quick project that really cleaned up the kitchen.  Our cabinets are the old 1979/1980 dark wood style that seems to suck the light away from you…so getting those insides painted out and lined really helped lighten everything up.  I kept the chalkboard contact paper on the inside of only one door so I did not negate all the good the other contact paper did.
