Here it is!

Okay readers...drumroll please! This is the finished product! My old,ratty,banged up microwave shelf transformed!
I tell you it looks brand new! Another pat on the shoulder to moi!
The recipe box on the left belonged to my grandma. I had to throw out a lot of recipe books...don't worry nothing gets thrown out here! they all went into a box for my up coming garage sale....So the kitchen is really nearly done....The remaining doors should be installed tomorrow as well as the new hardware!
Also (I didn't mentionned this....) but 2 of the cupboards will be converted to showcases to display...Pyrex (what else????lol) I can't wait!
The back will be covered in bead board painted green, and the rest will remain white. Oooooh! It looks amazing in my head (I hope it will look good live too). I can't wait to take pictures to show you all!
Last night I went to a happy hour for one of my friends (who was canned by my ex-employer). It was nice to see some old acquaintances, friends,ex-coworkers and people who give you a peck on the cheek, but you see in their eyes that they're just phony baloney and don't give a %$#@ about you ( To think I used to work with them....). I didn't stay too long because to tell you the truth I was overwhelmed...the heat, the noise, tons of people in a small space. I did make a couple of phone calls (and emails) today to apologize for not saying goodbye...Oh well!
I hope to post again over the weekend....We're expecting a heat wave tomorrow, sunday and monday.... It's just too soon!
