Here is a reminder of what the before looked like.
You can read about that here.
And here are the details of our after!
I got a little lazy and left the top unpainted.
(You can't see it unless your standing on a chair anyhow, right?)
I knew I wanted something functional and pretty on our bare kitchen wall. It's a perfect place for a lot of the pieces I did not want hiding in our cupboard anymore, and the bottom portion hides all of our small appliances. After a good sanding I decided on a stone grey color with a patterned fabric backdrop. I love that it's a large piece, but not obnoxiously bulky. I think it's a good fit for our kitchen and takes care of yet another untouched wall!
