My dreams of white bead board walls are fulfilled in wall paper and paint.
Elv listened patiently to my brainstorms and to my delight liked them. He “sacrificed” some white oak boards that he had slated for a trailer project. Elv, Lance, and Brad helped with planing them. I varnished them. And Elv hung them. The only fly in the ointment is that in this crooked old house, having them level made them look…not level. But by the time I had everything on the shelving, we aren’t noticing whether they are level or not.
(The last few pictures are from Clark’s camera.) So that is just the top half of the kitchen done. Next we will tackle the window and the lower cabinets. Elv would like to change the counter top to our own home crafted wooden counter top sometime this summer. So far, I am enjoying this project immensely. I expect wooden counter top to be a very satisfying adventure for us.
