Keeping up with family gatherings and general summer yard work and responsibilities has kept me from working on many projects but we did manage a small shelf at the end of the cabinets in the kitchen.
And as you know...
If you give a shelf a coat of paint
you begin touching-up those little nicks on the doors
which makes you notice the tiny chips on the trim work
that in turn, highlights the dings in the surbases
that brings attention to the scratches in the foyer
that magnifies the grime around the handle on the front door
then reminds you the shelf needs a second coat of paint...
So here is the little shelf that stared it all.
My project was twofold. I wanted to add a little interest to the end of the cabinet and, since I often serve from this counter top, I knew a little shelf would give added space for glasses or utensils. We had the wood scraps and brackets in the garage and came up with a simple design.
A little decorative and functional shelflink to take a peek at the painted cabinet process we did about ten years ago.
