If you're wondering what's in the basket....here you go....
Those would be extra dog food dishes, travel cups, etc. All the ugly things that we needed to keep but didn't really have space for elsewhere.
Isn't the color amazing?? I have been considering taking the bowl to Home Depot, having it color matched and painting the kitchen this color.
Well, there you go my lovelies, I hope it was worth the wait. I think it was, I love my shelves!!
A little financial breakdown for you:
I only had to purchase some primer, I didn't have enough left over from other projects. I use Zinser and I got a quart for $12.94, I know the left over will be used for something.
I did buy new dishes, but obviously if you do this project you could use your current dishes.
I got the seagrass baskets on sale at Kohl's, $11.94 for both, but I had Kohl's cash so I only paid $1.94 for them!
Besides the Goodwill finds I used what I had. So it was rather inexpensive for a huge change!
Now, for your entertainment and what happens when I'm in the kitchen trying to take pictures. This is what Boston Terrier owners call "bitey face." Trust me it's not as viscious as it looks but it does make taking pictures difficult.
It all begins with a look....
And then it starts.
Craziness I tell you!!
Oh, one more thing. The jury is still out on this addition. While I LOVE the industrial look of the card catalog and it was intended to hold recipes, menus, etc. I think it's a bit big. What do you think?
