WIP Wednesday: In the Kitchen (Still)


Good morning! I spent the past week continuing to plug away at my kitchen project. I can’t believe this project has taken me the entire summer. Still, progress has been slow but steady, so I guess I can’t complain. In fact, I finished the last of the painting this week, and it’s looking amazing!

Also, this week I learned that peel-and-stick wallpaper is SUPER FUN AND AWESOME. It’s so easy to hang! I found this herringbone pattern on Etsy and wallpapered the inside of my glass cabinets with it. (I haven’t installed the new glass doors yet.) So cute!! If this stuff weren’t so darn expensive, I would tempted to paper my whole house with it! I’m already on the lookout for other peel-and-stick wallpapering opportunities. : )


Okay, so what are you working on this week? Let’s see it!

1. Link up any blog post or Instagram photo from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. To link an Instagram photo, click the “Add Your Link” button below, then click on the Instagram icon at the bottom of the screen that pops up. You should then be able to select any of your recent Instagram photos. Where it says “Link,” use the URL of your Instagram feed (for example, my URL is www.instagram.com/lee.a.heinrich). Please hashtag your IG post #wipwednesday.
3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
4. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

    My work in progress is a sampler quilt from 2014. I seem to spend more time on my computer than at my sewing machine and so it is taking me a long time to finish. It will go to my eldest daughter (she's 32), who lives in Northern California. Please email me at ljbisme at msn dot com.

    I love your kitchen! In my free time I'm working on painting our hallway. But not these weeks, yesterday we returned from holiday in Italy. So no painting or sewing now, but doing the laundry. .

    I absolutely love the wallpapered cabinet backs! That is a great way for someone to incorporate ANY wallpaper that they really like, but maybe it's too expensive or the print would be overwhelming to use it on the walls. Sometimes a little goes a long way, you know? Congratulations, your kitchen is looking fantastic!

    I love the herringbone on the back of your cabinets. It's just the right amount of pattern – a graphic statement without being overwhelming. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Love that wallpaper! Never heard of it before. You do realize you're going to have to change your counters now! Lol! How did you deal with brush marks on your cabinets? I've never been satisfied with things I've painted by hand for that reason.
