Our kitchen is facing north and has one small window, hence there was not much light. The knotty pine look was getting on my nerves and so did the ugly, red Formica counter top, including
a 70th look linoleum brick floor all worn and the wood work being a very dark brown didn't help to make this kitchen into a cheery place to work in. I love light! Especially during Colorado's long winter month. I remodeled this entire kitchen from top to bottom for less than $900.00
Not only was the wall blinding, it was an eye sore to their beautiful property. Since they could not remove it, and the cost of a remodel wasn't what they wanted, their solution was to paint their dream landscape trompe l'oeil mural. They customised the mural completely choosing the plants, mountains, fountain and even the pot and flowers growing around the outside. If you have a spot you just cant seem to find the right painting for, or a full construction and remodel arn't in your
budget range, you can consider an affordable artist like myself to help you find what is right for you. No matter how large or small, we can create somthing new for you! Based out of both Boise and Orange County and serving the whole west cost! Designers are welcome to inquire and refer.

@Douglas - I had the same thought about a nice container plant completing the illusion. But,
Have a new issue that I have never dealt with. One client has cats using her slate chip patio as the litter box, and another client has cats getting into the custom firepit we built and
are using it as a little box. The firepit has a gas burner under a sand layer. Any ideas on how to discourage cats from an area?

I think this would work for cats. To keep rabbits from eating my zinnia seedlings, I cut 1"
chicken wire into 12" squares. Then, I snipped several places throughout the square. Every place I snipped and all around the edges I turned the wires up. The rabbits cannot see these lying in the beds but they do not like them.
