A tale of spraypaint and no cockroaches

So there I am...trying to reorganize all the clutter in my kitchen when I had an a-ha! moment. One of the things I hate about my kitchen is I have a lot of counter space but no backsplash (it's an open kitchen) and hardly any cabinets. All my cooking spices, etc. just sit out by my stove adding to the clutter. A few weeks ago I bought a funky little cabinet at a garage sale for 5 bucks and it was just sitting out in the garage so I thought I'd see if it would fit by the stove. I dragged it in but the color was yucky.

Which is something a little spray paint can easily fix. I had my oranges, pinks and reds leftover from when I made my board and floormat artwork so I masked off the tiles and started painting.

It was kind of too pretty so I put some copper glaze on there and then spattered it with some copper paint and since I always like surprises I spray painted the inside bright orange.


SURPRISE!

And then I dragged it into my kitchen and put all my kitchen cooking clutter in there! And here it is along with my glass tile projects!





I was going to start painting more kitchen walls today but it ain't happenin'. I'm done. I'm tired. I should do it cuz I didn't see even one teeny, weeny cockroach today and I should take advantage of their field trip or whatever reason they are gone for the moment.

But I can't. I need to rest. They don't call it Labor Day weekend for nothing.

Sigh.
