Remember that time we installed our custom counter top for the entryway bar?
Yeah. . . it’s a distant memory for me too. . .because it was in FEBRUARY!!
(March, April, May. . .)
7 months ago to be exact. (And really more than that since it actually went in before Christmas, I just blogged about it in February.)
So hang on to your seats ladies and gentlemen [insert drumroll here] because I have finally patched that awkward rectangle on the kitchen wall!!
Back to the awkward wall patch, the original counter stuck about 2″ further from the stone wall which made it really uncomfortable to sit at our new built-in benches. To fix the rectangle, I took the counter top off (we haven’t glued it down yet since I haven’t fixed the wall yet AND because it’s really hard to move refrigerators in and out of your kitchen with it in place. . . .again, a story for another day.)
Where was I??
I took the counter top off and sanded down the area so it would be as smooth as possible. Since the original counter was installed before the house was painted, the exposed area went all the way down to the sheet rock.
I also took the opportunity to add a little touch up paint to some areas of the kitchen that are already showing wear and tear. We really love our high texture walls, but they do get nicked ALL the time. Behind the trash can is the worst, in less than a year it’s rubbed off an entire strip texture and the lid has left the wall grimy and generally dirty looking.
