Way back when, I decided on a color for the kitchen. And just last week, I finally ordered the paint.
Friday night I came home and started cutting in the edges of the big wall. Then needed to take a break to order some tasty Mexican food for dinner and watch a movie on the couch… painting could wait until Saturday. Around 1am, I woke and noticed that Patrick was still awake, so I decided to go see why he wasn’t in bed. I smelled paint when I walked into the living room, so I mosied on through to the kitchen. Much to my surprise, he had painted the whole kitchen while I was snoozing. (Gotta love that husband of mine!) Saturday, I did some touch-up painting and fiddled in the kitchen most of the day…cleaning and reorganizing and whatnot.
The color is much more gray than I had imagined. The paint sample that I picked up a while back had more brown in it, but I’m still pretty satisfied with the results. It looks a million times better than the red that it was before. Don’t you agree? Its so much brighter!
As soon as we get the cabinets painted white, I think that will make a huge difference as well. Since the walls turned out to be grayer than I had anticipated, I’m now trying to figure out what color the countertops need to be. It will probably be a while before Patrick gets around to making them, but my mind won’t rest until I finally decide what color they will be. The hubs is going to make me a few samples so I can set them in place and see which color looks best (after we get the cabinets painted, of course).
Since taking these pictures, I have ordered the paint for the cabinets and Patrick has taken the doors down to sand and spray them. I can’t wait to say goodbye to that natural wood finish and hello to some beautiful crisp white cabinets!
One thought on “Work in Progress: The Kitchen”
If you give more importance to the elegance of the material despite the price, you can opt for kitchen countertops which involve stone materials like granite, marble, and ceramic tiles.
