here we go. I am not fond of having the washer/dryer in the kitchen, but I tried to make the best of it by using a slab of butcher block (bought years ago at a garage sale for 5$. ) to give us more work space/storage in the kitchen. I've tried different arrangements and never felt that it looked the way I wanted it to. The plate rack cupboard was given to us by our friend Margot, I love it, but couldn't find a way to make it work. This whole look makes me want to de-clutter. I've been looking at plank walls, especially ones made with barn board or reclaimed wood. I imagined the wall done that way, with very little hung on it, a simple, clean look. I searched Craigslist for weeks looking for wood we could recycle. So, I decided to attempt getting the look I wanted using new wood and distressing it with stains/paint. We bought 2 packages of tongue and groove paneling ($9. 99 each) and used some to make a gift for our friend Margot and the rest for the wall.

It feels like one of those urban legends, you know, the one... There are papers strewn in front of me, but I’ve stopped paying attention to them. My fingers are dangling off the side of the table and as if of their own accord, they uneasily start to tap out the ticking seconds in the air. She whispers to me when I think that I’m alone. She looks even more like me now. her hair’s been straightened and trimmed recently, the ends of her hair skimming the tops of her breasts. There’s barely any makeup on her face save for a light glitter of peach lip gloss and a sweep of raspberry blush on her cheeks. She’s dressed in a simple purple tank top and distressed blue jeans. She knits her fingers together contemplatively, and I see that she’s painted her nails with splodges of different colours, just like how I used to do. Her smooth skin isn’t as pale as it used to be. there are distinctive tan lines on the tops of... She sits across the table from me and regards me carefully just like how one would look at a kicked puppy. “You think.
To begin, we suggested painting the walls a color similar to this modern gray color from Sherwin Williams. Replacing the existing red brick with stone would give the entire space a fresh new look. If replacing the stone is too much for the current budget, than we suggested painting the brick warm white for a quick interim fix.
