Is it Sunday again?

Hey!  I'm painting and thought I would show you what we did to the bar.  I love it.  When we added a few cabinets, one base was left out.  A narrow 12" that was 24" deep.  Originally I had planned on a cupboard here but it would have had plank doors that didn't match the kitchen's and no drawer.  Option two was no door and open shelves but that would not be useful, just for display = more dusting.
 Mark cut down the 24" depth to fit beneath and here it is.  No legs yet, just a template.  There is a tiny little drawer perfect for pens or pills, and storage beneath.  This is the new color, Behr's Riviera Beach.  It's very close to Olde Century Color's Linen but less pink.  I love it.  I said that about the first color too.  I tried SW and Valspar but neither could mix it close to Behr.  Makes sense since it's their color and beige is a tricky bugger.  Eggshell finish Marquee.

 Because of the 12" depth of the above wall cabinets, you can't really sit at the very end anyway, so this filler is the perfect size and it matches.  Bonus - support for the stone overhang.  Ain't it cute? 
I sometimes get excited about something and if I don't share it right then and there, I may forget.  I didn't want to bring it up but I'm sure you've noticed a huge lull in my complaints about hot flashes.  They decreased, became less intense, but my brain didn't heal from the fried cells yet and now they're back.  I'm assuming because of the months of stress with Carole and I thought if I ignored them they would go away.  Doesn't work with extra pounds either.
I'll stay away now until Sunday.  I worked out a little design last night and want to start it today, hope to share it then. 
Have a great weekend - already the middle of June - summer is flying by.

BEige is a very tricky color....too many of them have that darn pink undertone...very hard to find the right one. I'm getting ready to repaint my kitchen cupboards....but between yardwork and other stuff...I am having a hard time finding the time. I love your your little cupboard and drawer....you sure have done alot to your home lately....beautiful!!

I'm so glad you didn't stick to Sunday's only. Life is boring with out you! Love how the kitchen's coming and your solution to the blank space. I had a lull in my hot flashes but now am on steroids for gout so they are back with a vengeance!
Stay cool & Hugs,

I am so glad you were able to finally find a color you are happy with. Also, that little end cupboard looks perfect in that spot.

I do love the way the kitchen is coming together. I totally agree about trouble with paint color. We now paint large poster boards and live with them awhile before we paint a room. Surprisingly that works pretty well.

Middle of June. Damn is right!
You are always so clever and come up with the most wonderful ideas. I look forward to a real tour of the kitchen when it is done.
Hugs :)
