All of the things I love here on the ground and up in into outer space.

My lease has officially started on my duplex in the city!! And boy, are my plans for the kitchen WAY more work than I had anticipated. I was at it all weekend and I'm still not done. But it's looking SOOOO much better! Here's a quick sneak peak:
This is quite obviously the before. The wood is old, in bad condition, dated, and makes the space look super tiny. And here's after a coat of primer:
There's definitely a lot more work to do (splotchy white isn't the design aesthetic I'm going for). But how much better does it look already?!?! Even the scallops along the top piss me off less. And the green counter/backsplash looks way better with the white too. B came over to help me with the first coat of paint last night (it's about 80% done) which was a HUGE help. I've also brought over 4 stuffed-to-the-gills carloads of stuff so far. There's a lot more to do, and after the amount of work I've put in so far (I'm tired and sore all over) the rest is still intimidating. But it's going to be worth every aching minute....
