Summer is looking good around here. I'm still cleaning up the yard, but today I hung out on the beach with a good friend, then we went to a local beach cafe for lunch. This afternoon I painted a small bookcase that I've had for quite a few years. It started out as a bathroom organizer but I moved it into the kitchen about a year ago. It was white with white baskets but now, thanks to the quick work of a can of spray paint, it's yellow.
It's a pretty lightweight piece, so I only use the bottom shelf for cookbook storage. The baskets hold napkins and dish towels (tea towels is the name we used when I was growing up). Our small kitchen has so little storage space, that this has been a great help. Plus, Gracie likes to perch on top of it so she can look out of the kitchen windows.
Here she is, inspecting the weird new smell.
I don't love it as much as I love the turquoise basket I painted a week or so ago, but it does add a bit of color to the kitchen. And now I have to go get the smear of yellow off of the wall. Steve caulked something there and left a smudge which I hadn't noticed until now. Sheesh.
