Today (or maybe tomorrow), I will begin the (insert sarcasm here) ever so wonderful task of removing shelf paper. I've been stalling, I admit it. I know it needs to be done so we can move ahead with the kitchen, but ohhh, I just don't want to do it. I've got three different kinds of shelf paper in various drawers & cabinets and it just doesn't want to budge. And I have to start packing up my cabinet contents before I can begin the peeling process. So wish me luck as I go from cabinet to cabinet, drawer to drawer and try to remove this ugly, sticky paper. Hmm, must make note to buy "goo be gone" so I can also remove any sticky residue that may remain. Here's my question...how on earth am I going to reach that very top shelf? I'll tell you now, I am afraid of heights and climbing up a ladder just doesn't appeal to me. My kitchen cabinets are tall...forty-seven inches tall, to be exact. I could probably get away with standing on the counter top but that doesn't sound appealing either. Don't worry, I may not want to climb up there, but I will. It's a job that must be done (shudder).
Since we're talking about kitchens right now, I thought I'd show you one of my inspiration photos. I love the way this kitchen looks. I've thought of adding molding to my existing cabinet doors (like this shows) but I'm not sure if it would look good with the scallop edges my cabinets have (see pic above, you can see a bit of the scallop & the flat face of the cabinet door). I do like the molding on top of the cabinets and have decided that it's a close match to my the crown molding in my livingroom and it might look pretty good here in my kitchen. We'd take it around the top of the cabinets and entire perimeter of the kitchen. All my cabinets are flush with the ceiling. What do you think?
