After playing around with the upper cabinets I decided I liked the open shelves on the outside.That makes the doors open backwards from normal but I am going with it anyway. I found a wood scrap from a previous project with a nice shape to use as the separator between the cabinets. Rather than a range hood I'm planning to use a photo of a vintage wall mounted fan.
I also made the counter tops a bit more gray to give more contrast between the counters and the wallpaper. I may have a finished kitchen to show later today. The current project is turning thin birch ply sheets into knotty pine paneling. I should have something to write about later, anyway. :-)
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
