rust-oleum REFUND

Slight progress on the kitchen cabinet end: rust-oleum will refund your $$$ if you aren't happy with the result...  Getting the $150ish back is nice, but having to spend another 40ish hours on cabinets = not ideal.

The bonus of an unfinished basement is that it is semi-barn like.  We paint (well, Matt paints), store, etc. all in our boxy basement.

The timeline for the cabinets has been pushed back, ahem, several times because Matt is busy learning about "drugs of the day" and other anesthesia things, but I am hoping they will be finished in the next week or so.

We also invested in "soft-close" hinges.  Matt is stoked about this:

Last, but not least, I'm plotting the next decor move for our living room.  I am inspired by clashing color.  Here is a link to a color scheme that I love (the decor is amazing):

I would never have put this together... but I started thinking about brightening up our living room and have a few ideas that involve either a bright mustard or teal + an old window.  The bright mustard may win.


  1. I just stumbled on your blog through the yhl forums. I read the first few posts, and thought it looked familiar. I totally already follow you through google reader! :-)

    Can't wait to see your finished cabinets. I painted mine white when we first bought our house a few years ago, and now i am thinking of painting the base cabinets turquoise.

    1. Ooh, I like the turquoise idea... I would love to see before and after pics!
