One of my first projects was to remove the spindles on top of every cabinet in the house. Thanks to my friend Roy I learned how to make short work of these little puppies.
After - not done with decorating up here yet
They were everywhere and just screamed "this house was built almost thirty years ago".
I think the cleaner lines make it look more updated and certainly made cleaning up there a nightmare. After the cabinets are painted I want to add a nice quotation I found to the area on the blank wall below the shelf.
