One of my Favorite Things


Next Cottage...............

......Old kitchen needed a face lift ..the valence over the sink ...hides a fluorescent light... the old kitchens of the 50's and 60.... not fancy but meets the basic needs of a kitchen....
Gut the kitchen..so much stress and expense...... !!!!!!!

This is LESS painful, LESS expensive . and LESS invasive. I painted the backs of the cabinets purple once I removed some of doors to update. Instead of removing the cabinets completely , I painted and added a detail and changed the knobs to red coral knobs .
Color is everywhere...sheetrock walls and sooooooooo much Luscious color.... Ooozing colors from every nook and cranny .

You have certainly made the most of the scallops! The nautilus is perfect.
