We have finally come to the time when we simply have to change the kitchen. When we found the house was sold in Nov. 2011 Judy said "They are going to flip it. We should call them and tell them what colours we like". We did not call and they used what to some may be nice but we enjoy brighter colours. Now it has been five years it is time to make the change.
So far, if we were doing this job for someone else they
could not afford to pay us for the time and
effort going into picking out colours for the walls, back splash, and
counters. Those who know us know that Judy is the brains behind the big
jobs and although having eye trouble goes all out making sure it is
just right. On the good side that part is, as of 24/05/2017 been
completed. Counter tops have been picked out and the staff from Home
Hardware in Tecumseh ON. will be here to measure the sizes we will
need. There are three counters, Judy and I will install two as
are just set in place and screw down. The third is large has a corner
and we do not want to be responsible for installing it. It will be good
to give it the Wheeler touch.

the breezeway it was always too dark. Now with the new door it is
always brighter. New door for new kitchen
We are very pleased with the new paint colour
on the walls
We think the paper on the doors look very good with the paint colour on the wall and door.
The colours are just too dark
This is the counter with the backsplash painted. When all is said and done the now white backsplash will be given a strip of painted wallpaper to dress it up.
flat inlaid panel of the upper doors where not nicely done so Judy
decided that the best plan would be to add imbossed wallpaper. When it
is dried it will get two coats of paint. The first will be ivory and
then sorbia will be applied and gently wiped off to leave a very nice
I am trying to get a photo that shows the colour work Judy has been struggling with. She painted the paper with the colour of the back splash and then the walls. She then spent a lot of time wipping down the wall colour to gige a nice soft look to the doors.
