It all started because of the opening over the stove was not center and had driven me mad for years! Hanging things there just made me madder when I couldn't center them.
Look real close and you'll see how it is off. Over too far on the right over the counter and over too far on the left over the stove.
Drove me NUTS I tell ya!
So Guess what me and the hubby did?
He's my sweetheart because he loves me in my madness and helps me. Even though we argue throughout, lol!
We added a spacer over to the right...see the wood in the corner?
There...now that's better. If you listen hard enough you can actually hear me sighing and saying ahh...
Now here comes the part that I have wanted to do for years but couldn't because of it being off center.
I come up with the ideas and the MR builds it...now isn't that sweet?!
(Well, we actually build it together)
He truly loves me!
See how we cut the moulding to come back in on those corners below the box? Well, it took a couple of tries until we figured it out...but I love how it looks!
Of course I still had some painting to do.
Can you tell that there is something else different?
I changed the knobs too! I am so in love with my kitchen now...I have my dream kitchen!
I am still thinking of painting the scrolly piece pink like over our sink. What do you think?
I kind of like that idea...
I was finally able to hang my plates above the stove and center them...I love plates and couldn't be any happier with how it all turned out!
The new knobs and pulls made such a huge difference on lightening it all up...plus it goes so much better with the hood over the stove.
I love how they bring out more of the grey in our counters. The other knobs pulled out the copper color speckled throughout and that was ok, but I love this so much more.
Looks better with the shabby chic look don't ya think?
I know to some this seems trivial...all for 2 inches and a decorated piece over the stove. But to me, it was the stars and the moon! Just ask my Mom, I bellyached about it for years! The hubby didn't seem to remember...I think he tunes me out sometimes....
So there ya have it ladies and gentlemen...my madness continues...
