So, here’s the product of last evening. It may look a little mottled because the paint wasn’t dry when I snapped these.
View toward (unfinished) dining room:
Fabulous old stove:
A friend made the very good suggestion of changing the cabinet hardware, since the little scrolled whatsits contribute heavily to the dated feel of the kitchen. It will be a sizeable investment – I counted 26 handles – but I may see if the landlord will split the cost after a couple of months. That is, if he’s still talking to me…I think I call every other night with paint issues.
Tonight: touch up the living room with (hopefully) matching white so we can start putting furniture against the walls. I doubt there will be any photos of note, since touching up white is about as boring as it gets.
I permitted myself to start reading a book last weekend, which is always a little dangerous since I tend to read books all at once instead of at intervals. I’m almost done with The Gift of Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, and it’s a lot better than I remembered (this is my 2nd reading). Makes me want to finish all this moving stuff so I can paint canvasses instead of walls.
