The kitchen is finally all repainted and knobs and handles all installed. What a project!
I was finally able to use my fancy brackets. I bought them years ago and could never figure out where to use them, thinking I would put a shelf up somewhere. They were sort of an off/antique-white but I just sprayed it a rustic brown like the rest of the kitchen cabinet hinges. I think it works quite well for under the countertop - just in case the boys have any ideas of hanging off the countertop.
