Shutters...part one!

My Obsession with White

Several coats of paint later...

The cats are forbidden inside because of their love for mauling anything wool...but it doesn't mean they won't try.

A little Good, a little Bad

Good: The parlor kitchen cabinets are now white. Again with that sticky, glue-like, utterly aggravating paint...but white. And done.
Bad: When cleaning the 2 inches of dust off the counter tops I realized that the contractors actually broke the back corner off of my double basin sink, never said anything, and tried to glue it back together.
What other surprises are there waiting?

Good to have Closets...

Our friend Mark built these closets for us in the downstairs bedroom. Not painted yet of course--but the idea was to make them look like built-ins.
My standards have been so lowered by our crappy contractors that I just can't believe what a great job he did.
Everything is level and lines up...no weird ramps leading to nowhere...super solid and strong....

Coming soon: The Painted Version!
