I can't tell you how happy I am that now we have a usable kitchen.
This is the larder.
The first photograph shows it as I found it, with old paper on top of the shelves, full of dust and dirt. I removed the paper and cleaned underneath. There was this blue lino and wood. I painted inside the walls, varnished the wood and covered the old lino with sticky fabric ( I am sure it has a name, but I don't know it). I wouldn't normally go for zebra design, but there wasn't much to choose from, and since it is temporary I thought I might as well go for something outrageous and fun.
Well, maybe I should do something outrageous and fun when we design our new kitchen, rather than going for a plain classic style....what do you think?
