omg. and please help.

omg. i blogged about my laundry yesterday. this is supposed to be a home renovating blog. clearly i was without caffeine.

luckily – the plumber guy saved my day yesterday (and gave me a lecture about vegetable peels and the garbage disposal) along with the washing machine delivery men. i’ve never been so happy to do laundry in my life. this morning i woke up wondering what else i could wash….

anyways – time to get back in the saddle with improving bungalowhutch. now that my dishes are no longer piling out of control in my sink, i can see this again.


that is a close up of the window sill over our sink.


in case you need some perspective. or in case you we're thinking our house was totally beautified - here's what this sucker looks like.

so – this needs to change. but what should we do? and how should we do it? i’m thinking of bright white paint over that nasty off- white paint to match the cabinets and make the windows pop out of their little caves. (they are set back so far because we had to build the wall out from the original plaster/brick walls to accommodate for things like plumbing and electricity. and our walls were so uneven hanging cabinets would have been a disaster with out the new walls…(i’m talking like you care, but guessing you probably don’t.)

my other thought was something more bold for the trim on the window itself. like a deep grey… would that look good??

my real problem is what to do with the trim. we originally wanted to just do a white wood trim around the window box itself to match the existing window trim in the house. but – there is no room. we didn’t really think about that when we built out the walls and got the cabinets. oops.


there is definitely no room for trim around the window with this little guy...the other window in the kitchen.

and keep in mind – we eventually want to put in a glass subway tile backsplash. either an olivey green to pick up on the accent paint or a bluey-greeny-gray….you can picture that, right?


something like this (found randomly here).
or this green - but only as a backsplash - not covering the whole wall. we couldn't afford that.

or this pretty stuff. (photo from country living)

oh and also keep in mind, when we win the lottery eventually something like this will be hanging over our kitchen sink.


oh restoration hardware - can you give me this for free?

so…. what should we do!?!?!

just trim on the bottome ledge? no trim? bright white paint? dark grey paint? i’m all over the place – clearly. so tell me what to do.

oh. and can you also tell me how to do it!?

mr. hutch and i have taken on our latest adventure - redoing a 1920's bungalow in denver's park hill neighborhood. we have no idea what we are doing. follow along to see our progress. we're determined to see if we can jump on the DIY bandwagon and have the home of our dreams. with some help from our knowledgeable contractor friends, kidnapping tools from my dad's garage and stalking all the other DIY home blogs - what's the worse that could happen?
