Do they really come in 4 foot sections, or can you get longer ones to cut down?
i believe we purchased an 8 ft. section and a 4 ft. section which was plenty for our small area. i'm honestly not sure what the largest size is that they sell though. i would assume you could special order whatever size you need. what we got was just precut and "off the shelf" so to speak. as for working with them, my dh didn't seem to have any issues, but that's the type of stuff he's good at, so i'm not sure if that's typical.

first of all, LOVE your green glasswear!
next, you could totally work with that kitchen! paint those cabinets white with new hardware and they will look so good. change a couple other things, like wall colour and countertops and i think you'll feel so good about that kitchen in the end.

Thanks! Yeah, I hope those changes will make a difference. Believe it or not, the kitchen was MUCH worse when we bought the house. It had an orange linoleum floor from the 60s and wallpaper with red and green strips. Add that to the yellow counter tops and it looked like a bad trip !

To be honest, I'm not comfortable with white cabinets. I am afraid that they will be a mess in no time. What if I painted the cabinets a color and left the walls white (or cream as they are now). Also, If I paint the cabinets white (or a color), do you think I should paint the wall shelves (with all the green pottery) to match?

I have that same fear.I plan to paint mine a blueish gray.

I would wait and see how the shelves look with the cabinets before deciding to paint them since they match the furniture in the dining room.

Lovely house! I especially like your children's room...what a great play area. I also love your master bedroom (We have the same bed frame from IKEA! http://www.flickr.com/photos/archymo...7608688239541/ ).

In the summer, the curtain comes down to let in all the nice sunshine and breeze through the screen door.

The window and door are extremely leaking though. : My kitchen get's quite cold in the winter. Both really need to be replaced. I had the window priced and it would be a custom piece at over $400. : The other thing I hate about the window is the trim around it...whoever installed it did a lousy job. My DH has a friend who does etched glass designs on windows and mirrors. We've talked about having the window etched with a craftsman-style image so that we have more privacy, but still have all the sunlight.
Hey, I just came across this kitchen in Rate My Space - it reminded me of your kitchen layout/cabinet colors. Check out the before/after pics - amazing what a can of paint can do! And that cornice (or whateve it's called) - above the sink. Love it! It's going to be my DH's weekend project.

okay, i must preface this post with the fact that my "snobby" interior designer is coming out on this.

first off, it really is an amazing transformation! kudos to the creativity.

but.....and you knew that was coming, didn't you?! lol! there is no way on earth that this only cost $17. no way. cabinet paint is atleast $28 per gallon and they have WAY more cabinets than we did and used an entire gallon on our few cabinets. not to mention the glaze for the cabinets, the paint for the counter tops and the rest of the room, the joint compound for the backsplash, and the wood for the cornice. sorry, not buying it. minor irritation, but nonetheless true.

the other thing about the backsplash.......it's going to get nasty in no time. you can't "wash" joint compound, atleast not THAT much, without it turning "gummy". it's kind of like "popcorn" ceiling material....once wet it breaks down.

and the counter tops.....they look great NOW, but we tried to paint our counter tops and realized rather quickly that they would have to be "babied" in order to stay looking nice. and since we actually USE our kitchen, i knew that that would never happen and they would be a scratched up mess in no time. poly will only seal for so long....and you have to reseal it every once in awhile. once you start wiping up messes everyday it will wear down. and scooting a bowl or something across it can also scratch the finish.

all around it looks very pretty on the computer screen, but i don't think those ideas are practical in every day use. it's best to use the proper tools and materials for both quality and longevity. especially in a room used so often as a kitchen.

i do think the cabinets (if she used the proper paint) look really nice though....and should hold up just fine.

but i'm seriously impressed with the creative use of materials! honest!

Thanks for the inspiration, greenmom! I have to agree with vm though, there is no way that cost only $17...but I get the point - you can make a big difference without spending a ton. I am envious of her open soffits - I really wish mine were like that. I would love to have that area to display things. Last night I told DH about my brainstorm to remove them and insert a butcher-block shelf above the cabinets. It would really transform the kitchen and make it look a little more like the period of the house, but I'll probably focus on painting the cabinets and replacing the counters for now.

vm, thanks for the info on the IKEA counters. I hope to make a trip there in March to price out butcher block counters and *maybe* a porcelain sink - to go with the porcelain backsplash that we have planned.


Thanks for your help gals!

Totally agree, it looks great in a picture but wouldn't hold up over time. The backsplash would drive me crazy, just knowing that it wasn't real tile - I'd rather have nothing there, to be honest. But looks great on the computer screen!

That woman is very creative though, and much braver than I am! Gotta give her credit for that!

And all of it for $17? Hmmm, doubt it as well, she probably had 75% of the supplies already at home! But she's an inspiration nonetheless!

we had an off-white (not done by us) on the cabinets in our old house and i never found them to look dirty or yucky at all but i see no reason why you can't just pick a colour you like instead of white! we have black and i think i'm going to leave them black to match our appliances when we re-paint our kitchen (i wish that was going to happen soon!! it's so ugly in there.)

Here's a repost of my bathroom. The reno was in October and it's still nice and clean and perfect.

And here's a new pic of my uncluttered but not quite perfect living room.

I'm hoping to pick up the materials to redo the window wall this weekend. It needs new insulation so dh is going to pull the wall down, insulate, add drywall, paint and then build a bookcase that will cover the entire wall from floor to ceiling.

At a later date we'll be doing another floor to ceiling bookcase wall unit on the wall not shown, refinish the floor, add a computer table, refinish the coffee table, get an area rug, new cushions, new curtains, a throw for the love seat...

Then it will be perfect.

OOoh we started on the bookcases. Are books minimalist?...lol. Dh is staining them as we speak. We also bought an area rug and some wallpaper to wallpaper the back wall (with the blue artwork on it). Teaser pics on my blog.

Now I need to switch out the curtains they look weird with the bookcases. I'm so excited this is my dream living room coming true!

I LOVE your bookcases! Where did you find them? Or did you make them?
