Although we installed the cabinets last week we didn’t start adding doors until a few days ago. We delayed the door installation until after I had painted the ceiling. (I wanted to eliminate the risk of getting paint splatters on the doors) So Wednesday AM I painted for three hours. I hate painting ceilings. I really do.
So with the freshly painted ceiling Aubrey was able to do the door installation and Wednesday night he sent me some photos ….. it looks amazing. I can’t stop staring at the photo. I’m really, really happy with the Ikea Adel Doors. We still have to add crown molding, a valance, backsplash — still lots to do.
Part of the reason for showing this shot is because a lot of people have commented on the exposed brick wall that has been seen in previous photos. Although it’s lovely, it’s not staying like this for a few reasons.
First, the other side of the kitchen doesn’t have an exposed brick wall and I think it would look odd to different back splashes. Number 2 – I don’t think brick cleans very well so food splatters would be hard to get off. Last – although I like the look, it’s not the look I was going for. Now – that being said the interesting thing is that the soft grey of the brick has me debating whether I really want to do a white subway tile as we had originally planned. The grey looks lovely with the cabinetry. Because of this – we’ve decided to wait until the countertop is installed to decide on the backsplash.
Still a lot of things to do, but this shot was too fun not to share. 😉 Have a lovely weekend! xo Linds
