This peninsula was peninsu-lame. And that orangy plywood stuff happens to be one of my biggest pet peeves ever! It’s all over the place in my house. Contractors get cheap and use a totally different material for the sides of cabinetry than the fronts, which doesn’t even COME CLOSE to matching, and it drives me bat-poop crazy. EVERYDAY. “Why don’t you do something about that?” you are thinking. Well, I did, and the guy quoted me about $600 a panel to fix it, sooo … I am living with it for now until I decide to part with that much money (ha ha!) or figure out a better idea. Like this cool fix from Jennifer at Two Butterflies. Tons of personality now! Thanks Jennifer!
