The new floor is in! It looks fabulous. It feels wonderful. The floating floor is vinyl-cork. Wonderfully easy on one’s back and feet.
I am thrilled with how beautifully the rich coloring of the flooring works with the newly painted cupboards. The make-over is not quite finished. Just one more work project and the kitchen will be Cinderella at the ball. It is amazing what a little paint can accomplish.
No kitchen cabinets were destroyed in this make-over. Every thing we could re-use, re-cycle and even re-invent means very little going to the landfill. In this day when so many of us want the “latest shout” in kitchens it is important to think of our planet. The arbourite was perfectly good. The cabinets made of solid wood. All that was required was a great deal of elbow grease and the perfect shade of gray paint.
Infusing joie de vivre into your kitchen has less to do with the quality of your cabinetry and more to do with the quality of your conversation Less to do with the BTUs of your gas range and more to do with the volume of your laughter. (Carolina Fernandez)
