Here is the before:
I think I'm taking that poem down one of these days too. Too many people just really don't like it!
So a close up of the before:
I added a lamp. I put contact paper inside the shelf box.
(I really need to paint under the cabinets - those look BAD!)
Now, instead of spices... and sugar and salt which I'm trying to eat less,
I placed a Christmas present Vera Bradley recipe book. It's perfect for holding the recipe you are baking!
So now we have white linoleum backsplash and a cleaner look to the kitchen. And a candle always makes things look and feel better too! The Make-Under! Kind of like a good make-up remover, softer and smoother looking.
