Home Sweat Home: Kitchen Ceiling

As I alluded to in the last kitchen post (with much suspense) I checked another To Do off this list…

  • Paint maroon grout (shudders)
  • Fix baseboards
  • Paint ceiling
  • Paint light fixtures
  • Replace kitchen window
  • Replace kitchen window blinds
  • Replace almond outlets with white ones

A Before:

Doesn’t look too bad, does it?

Incorrect. See?

The ceiling was a beigy-yellow and very greasy. Two coats of white paint fixed that right up!

It could have used three coats but who has time for that?

And a useless After photo:

I surprised Zack when he came home from work and asked him to “guess what’s different about the kitchen!”. He wandered around confused and replied “I have no idea but something about the kitchen certainly feels less gross.”

BINGO!

It’s one of those type of projects; lessening the Gross Factor. Well, yet another project I’ve started and completed. Just like Amelie says when she uses the big girl potty, “Yay, I’m so proud of me!”

More home updates coming. As per usual, with every move forward seems to encourage a step back. Literally. A corner of our front step fell off during the massive snow storm just before Easter.

Classy.

  1. Wow thecandace! I mean I am double triple proud of you. A ceiling. BAZING!!!! That is one of the hardest things to get done without sprinkling paint on counters floors and so on. Go Girl. AND done durning naps and preschool Lv mamap

    • I was hoping any sprinkle of paint that landed on the countertops would help mask the maroon grout. Speckled is nice, isn’t it?
