Can anyone tell that I'm not getting a lot of work done today? I'll probably go mute for a month after this.
Don't get your hopes up.
Remember I was blathering at great length about stripping the wallpaper behind the washer and dryer, building new doors, etc., and that I was going to put pictures up Real Soon Now?
First, the before. Oh, the humanity. Dark walnut stained cabinets, poorly made out of dimensional grade lumber. Silly twirly latch in the middle. Dark red, small-scale floral wallpaper. These are the washer and dryer that came with the house - those went to the curb immediately.
After! As you can see, we just added a cat, and Presto! everything was improved! The wallpaper is gone - that was the easy part. These cabinets, unlike the kitchen, got painted on the inside too. New doors - these two were the biggest of all of the doors that we made. New hardware, and if you look carefully under the cabinets there are four LED under cabinet lights courtesy of IKEA. It's a much nicer place to do laundry now.
Next I should get pictures of the guest room. I "finished" it months ago...
