Cheap re-do

May 3, 2008

Home 'Improvement', Lauren

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve actually been whittling away at the kitchen. Every so often I’d scrape a little more paper, and then decided to use up paint from the basement stash. We have so many leftover cans of paint you wouldn’t believe it. There are several cans from the previous owners, and various gallon, quart, pint and spray cans from my projects. It’s nuts.

The first attempt was the yellow from Brad’s room, and it was nice, but it didn’t go with the dining room. So, I used brown paint from the downstairs bathroom for the top part, and tan paint from the upstairs bathroom for the bottom. There: it’s all done and I only spent 4 bucks for new roller covers. To honor the event, I have made a movie! Cricket just loves when there are projects that require the ladder. It’s the ultimate cat toy. (Something went wonky when we uploaded it, so it no longer fits just right with the music. I do not care.)

    I love it! And I think the ladder is a nice addition to your kitchen, too.

    Looks great! What a cute video. The music seemed like it synched up fine. Precarious tail-chasing spot!


  5. Peggy Said on:

    Wow! You finished that project really quick — 1 minute 51 seconds! Can I have some of whatever you were on?

      It actually took longer than that, but we didn’t film the torture of Bob Vila. Once we learned his secrets to completing any home project in 30 minutes, the rest was cake.
