This is the rest of the story

Well, you have seen all of the other walls of the kitchen, here is a picture of the last wall. It goes up the full height of the 12 foot vault. It, also , was the most difficult of the walls to paper. I had to stand on a chair on the counter top to hang the strip that couldn't be reached from either side on the ladder. I got a great deal on the wallpaper I got all 4 double rolls on e-bay for $ 45.00. and the color was just perfect. I couldn't believe my luck.

I built the shelves and mounted them on iron brackets which I painted the same color as the cabinets. They house a large part of my Fitz & Floyd collection. I bought some of them at a F&F outlet and others were gifts for either my birthday or Christmas. I am partial to bunnies and ducks. The canister set was a garage sale find and the sugar and creamer were from a trip to Kansas City several years ago. The tray on the top shelf was painted by my Mom over 35 years ago.

The shelves look great. I love how you have the things displayed on there. That is so neat that you have a plate painted by your mom. Awesome to have special things like that.

What a wonderful collectioin Diane, and to have something so special as the tray,well that in itself is wonderful. Hooray for you, I have never attempted wallpapering........never....have helped, but never ventured that journey on my own.

Thank you so much for reaching out to me. No one truly understands our experiences with breast cancer unless they have also been down that road. I am not saying others can't wish us well, or hope for our best, but until you've walked a mile in someone else's shoes... so here's to many more healthy years of life ahead for both of us.

Keep on reaching out... it's wonderful.

God bless,
Penny Sue

Just wanted to drop by and thank you for weighing in on my latest post. Everyone's thoughts and opinions are very valuable to me.



The shelves and the wall paper look so pretty and I can't believe you put a chair on top of the cabinets to put the wallpaper up! Oh the crazy things we will do to decorate!!LOL.
