pantry redo

So I have been working on refinishing our deck and our newest purchase is this power sprayer!

It is great! It took me about 2 hours to paint 20 railings but only about 30 minutes to paint over 100 using this sprayer! a paint sprayer is well worth it. We bought ours for $100 at Home Depot.
So in between painting the deck (i will blog about that later) I came in to grab something to eat and I decided it was time to do something about these ugly shelves.

When we bought our house the kitchen had black and white tile and fairy princess bordered wall paper (don't ask) lol. And then of course the shelves were lined black and white checkered. I have looked everywhere for (cheap) shelf liner or wall paper but its so expensive and if its going to be in a closet then I don't want to spend that much soooooo, i decided to paint them.
So we have to pull everything out and of course it's a hassle, big mess and even Zuko thinks i'm crazy...
and I just want to throw in the towel, but then I wouldn't get this...
What a difference paint makes! It amazes me every time!
It just looks much cleaner to me.  
And then I painted the inside of the door.  Much, Much better. I kinda want to do some cute geometric design on the inside. I know its pretty plain right now but there is just NO TIME  :(  This is the best I can do while  I work a full time job so to fit projects like this into the mix is a huge challenge.   Just trying to fix up my house one weekend at a time.
Thanks for looking! I'm going to link up to one of my favorite blogs:

  1. It looks great. Did you just paint over the liner? Sometimes it is really hard to get up the old liner and I was wondering if you just went right over it?


Thanks for your comment!
