The following is a reprint of a previously published post. A few of you mentioned the “retro kitchen” in the last Thrifty Threads post, so I thought I would share my husband’s inspiring project with those of you who might not have been reading this blog two years ago. The painting on the wall is at this moment hanging in our local Coffee Shop, along with an even larger pop-art painting of Lincoln he completed this year.
These are all “after” photos. I know, I realize the main attraction of these transformation stories are the “before” and “after,” but neither my husband nor I had the forethought to take any “before” photos.
Here’s the view into the dining room/living room. We ended up having to use two different colors of paint on the cabinets because we liked the lighter color, but thought the kitchen would be too bright if we painted all the cabinets that color.
