My Kitchen

I have been wanting to paint the kitchen since we moved in (almost 2 years ago). I finally got around to it yesterday! I have to say, I LOVE it! I don't know why I waited so long now. I was extremely intimidated by the thought of all that cutting in. I finally did it, and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be!

Before: (this is a picture from the listing when it was for sale)




And after!


The paint looks slightly greener with the flash, and slightly more blue without the flash.


I think it makes a great backdrop for pictures!


I don't know what color it is though. I bought the paint from Lowe's...it was in their bargain bin marked down to $5! It must have been a custom mix that the person didn't like. I'm so glad I was able to find it. I love the color and you can't beat that price!

I can't remember the last time I saw my kitchen so clean! If only it would stay that way!

Ohh I like it -- and it matches the eggs! I'm so jealous of how clean your counters are too. I feel like no matter what I do, my counters always look cluttered!

Allison, don't feel bad! The counters are never this clean! That's the thing about lots of counter space...lots more room to store stuff! ;-)
