...food will no longer be prepared on THIS stove. Oh, I know. That rule will only last until "they" get hungry. But you see, I've finally made a few visual enhancements to the area. Finally!
The first thing I did was repaint the backsplash towards the sink a lighter, almost coconut color. I loved the butterscotch I had previously put there, but seriously, the coconut went better with the chocolate wall and soffit. I love that my walls look like
desert a collection of some of my favorite colors. Then added a couple of those plastic faux tin tiles, from a home store, behind the stove. They're awesome...might pick up a few more and do the rest of the backsplash.
Then I added some "L" brackets behind the stove. This is because my counters are extra deep, causing the stove to be over 3 inches away from the wall. The "L" brackets are for a special metal pan I picked up at Second Hand Rose in MN. It was intended for seasonings...but when I saw how nicely this was coming together I grabbed a few of my sweet ironstone milk pitchers and put them in the pan.
Now who would want splattered spaghetti sauce on that?! No. More. Cooking.
