I've Been Tagged by Lisa!

I have been tagged by my friend Lisa!
Here are the things to do:
1. Go to the fourth folder in your picture file on your computer.
2. Post the fourth picture from that file (here's mine):

3. Explain the picture:

This is a picture of my kitchen we renovated in our home which was built in 1890. We took the cupboard doors off above the sink and added a cornice to create a little display area for some of my favorite things! I redid all of the cabinets myself (boy, will I ever do it again, NO!) Because the cupboards were in such great condition I did a paint technique on them to give them that old world feel. Below the sink, we took out the board and added tiles to create the effect of the old farm sinks you spend a fortune on! You have to come up with creative ways when you are renovating an old house! The wallpaper has monkeys swinging on vines and they really make me smile when I get up to have my morning cup of coffee! On the wall opposite this area, I had a great lady come in and do a trompe loile (oops, not sure I spelled this right, did a spell check but it didn't come up) of the monkeys swinging on the vines with their little vests on to match the wallpaper! My granddaughter just loves it and so do we!

4. Tag 4 more people, so this is who I tagged:

Jennifer ~ Bella Lucille

Debbi ~ Marionberry Cottage

Mrs. Charlotte ~ Mrs. Charlotte's Boutique

Melissa ~ Adored Before
