How was everyone's weekend? Mine was spent in a flurry of deconstruction. My house is torn. up. I did start clearing the clutter as I mentioned was on my weekend to-do list last week. I started with my kitchen, which resulted in a little detour in my first project and I ended up painting my kitchen and kitchen cabinets. It's been on my to-do list for a long time. The last time I painted my cabinets I was lazy and unfortunately not long after I painted my paint began to peel. So this time I vowed to do it right. I was going to strip those cabinets down. I got through heat-gunning two cabinet doors and decided that maybe every time I paint I'll just strip a couple doors at a time. It took me three hours for two doors. Anyone who has a job stripping paint with heat guns, I am sure they don't get paid nearly enough. Labor i.n.t.e.n.s.i.v.e. I did sand and prime the remaining doors, so hopefully they will hold up, but those ones I stripped, they definitely do look better. And there may have been a little contact paper involved in my kitchen make-over. But in the spirit of procrastinating an even bigger job, I finally got this one done, so no complaints. Unless you want to hear me complain about heat guns some more. I could go on about that.
When I finally finished my kitchen project late Sunday evening, I headed online to find some inspiration to keep going in my endeavors and I found this beautiful Swedish flat in Kungsholmen. I love the open feel of this apartment, all the light and large rooms give it such an airiness. I also really like how they kept the neutral feeling of the space by turning their books around backwards. Unfortunately I buy books much faster than I read them and have not read half of the books I have lining my many bookshelves so I need to see the spines, but I really love the look of it.
