My Kitchen Walls

I did some painting the other day, I promised I would show where I'm up to, so here it is. 

Signature Grey (the dark one) needs a second coat, but for a single coat it was fantastic coverage! Ooo! I've had a few comments about the size of my Kitchen Pallet Frame Chalkboard. It was hard to see how big it actually is from the original post- So this photo should give some size perspective. It's bigger than the latest pallet wood project I did above the piano! 


I took the Signature Grey all the way round the Kitchen. I love it.

There are a lot of things that are in my sights to change.... See down the bottom, the kick-boards? I painted them white to see what it would look like ha! Imagine a beautiful white clock, flowy white linen curtains, antique phone, white awesome cupboard doors, no things on top of the cupboards (none of it belongs to me, my cupcake friend owns all of those pretties) an ice dispensing fridge- no more ice fights! 

Oh! So this was the best "before" photo I could find.

Pallet Wood creations...
Still have the ceiling white to do and half of the trims... just to name a few.

Since I was on a roll, I did a little spring cleaning -er- Autumn cleaning. Dusting, vacuuming, wiping, tidying, and cleaned the air filters in the ducted air and split systems.

With the change of season we will be using the air more, so efficiency is vital!! 

Check out the dust bunnies on this this bad boy! This is only a few months worth of dust. 


Much better! Gave it a good hose down and put it on the line to dry.






Took out the little filters and hosed them down too, then wiped down the unit- Dust bunnies be gone!! 


Determined not to get a huge-a-moungus electricity bill from this coming winter. One clean filter at a time tehe!
