I was quite happy with putting up the shelves in the kitchen: but I did think they looked a little blah.
I had always intended to paint the nasty beige dish carousel: but I had thought it would be white to keep things feeling fresh and clean.
But I was craving colour, so, using paint I'd purchased for another project, I made it yellow, instead.
Then, it was actually an easy job of balancing it with dishes I already had on hand.
I'm much happier.
The other day my daughter said it was "much easier to put away the dishes, now."
Useful and beautiful?
