This is a story that starts with "Long, long ago there was a girl who wanted a cabinet/bead board wall to block the view from the front door..."
The cabinet/bead board wall got built a long while ago, but we planned to paint it when we finished framing all our windows too.
The idea was we would frame the rest of the windows, then have all the window frames, bead board wall, and all of our trim professionally painted in the same color.
While waiting for that to all come together, I started trying out different chalk paint colors trying to pick the "perfect" color...yeah, like that will ever happen!
Finally, the bead board wall-side of the built-in cabinet got painted this summer when Middle Daughter visited. If I haven't mentioned it before, she's a GSD (Get Sh*t Done) type girl!
So much has been going on around here medically that I never got around to showing that pretty painted wall.
Even today, we spent almost the whole day at an Emergency Room with my 95 year old father-in-law going through a whole litany of scans, X-rays and tests.
Someday the bead board wall will be the same color as the front door, but for now I'm just happy that it has paint on it!
Here is a picture taken from the front door. As you can see, the view from the front door no longer allows you to see all the way through the house, which means we have a lot more privacy.
I would still like to add a high shelf and a row of hooks to the bead board wall, but for now it passes as finished if we sell the house before we add anything more to it.
Thanks for dropping by!
