Since we first moved into our home, there was one thing in particular (among many) that I just could not stand at:
the scallop trim above the sink!
It's just not my style, that's all!
|The infamous scallop above the sink|
One of the first project we tackled (6 years ago) was remodeling our kitchen...but the scallop was untouched :(
I have tried to figure out a way to either take it off or cover it up, but was never successful until...
First of all, I could not remove the trim without taking the chance to ruin the upper cabinets and the crown moulding...the scallop was made to last :)
and it did for the last 45 years or so.
My only hope was to give it a more updated look, so I got busy and cut several pieces of leftover trim.
Three long pieces of flat trim and the curved trim on the bottom. Caulk, prime, 2 coats of paint.
The scallop went bye bye!
This project didn't cost me anything.
I just used leftover trim we already had from previous projects and leftover paint.
It wasn't a big messy projects, and it took a couple of hours from start to finish!
Now I feel MUCH better when I look at this
(which is a lot of times during the day).
Updating a look does not always take a lot of money
