Progress in the Kitchen

No. I did not learn to cook. What would make you think that?

While we're on the subject . . . . This weekend Michael's aunt asked me to chop an onion for her. As I chopped she and her husband asked me what kinds of thing cooked now that no longer work. "Oh. I don't cook. Its all peanut butter and jelly until Daddy comes home." They thought I was joking. Maybe I should learn to make something . . . .

Anyway, I am excited to tell you that the wainscoting it up in the kitchen! YEAH! It looks fabulous.

I am less excited to tell you that I tried to paint my desk but forgot to sand it first. I'll be redoing that this week and I need some advice. Bearing in mind that the desk is going to be black like the wainscoting--which drawer pulls do you prefer?

You should also know that if I use the dark leafy ones they will both be the same. If I use the hand painted ones there will be one of each.

Also, I decided I still don't like the yellow and bought a gallon of green paint to replace the yellow. What do you think?

In the picture you can see the yellow I painted before and the green I am changing it to. The darker blue strip is the painters tape so just ignore that.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to say that painting is a lot harder when you don't have a tall friend visiting. Seriously.

I must weigh in on the green. It is awesome. Wainscoting is beautiful.

I like the knobs on the left best, but both are equally cool. I love the idea of drawer pulls that don't match perfectly.

I agree with the first. I like the nobs on the left and the green paint. The black is awesome! I can't wait to see the final project!!

I like the pulls on the right, they fit perfectly with your personality. I love the green and black too :)

You can never go wrong with green. Forget that it's my favorite color. (o; I like the colorful knobs more.

Use the colored knobs.

Green is better than yellow.

Good job.

Painted knobs.

I'm NOT coming to visit to help you paint. Jessie set a bad precedent.
