The New Kitchen (again)

This was the baby blue kitchen with brass handles before we moved in 17 months ago.

We painted it Celebration Blue, changed to chrome handles, added chandeliers, black counter tops, and glass backslash.
Now with brown distressed cabinets, stone backslash, light counter tops, and dark hardwood flooring.
Why so many different looks in just 17 months. No, we are not that wasteful with money. We had a house fire.

Then our changes to the Kitchen.

Then We had a Garage fire that did a lot of damage to the kitchen

The New Kitchen

The color is Celebration Valspar

So to cover it up we told them to put some panels of beadboard up on the sides of the cabinets.

Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.

In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
