I told you that I've been busy in the kitchen.
I've been wanting to make over the kitchen for a while now.
The white ceiling was a dingy grey and in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint
and I also wanted to change the color of the cabinets.
I just wasn't sure of what color...
They've already been:
and the cream color that they are now..
What color haven't they been?
I found myself scanning pinterest for white cottage kitchens for days..
There were so many gorgeous kitchens!!!
At first I wanted to paint the entire kitchen white..
but decided to start out with the cabinets and pressed tin first..
I used Behr bright white paint and primer mix.. it's the best!!
I worked my way around the kitchen
... one of my favorite changes is chalk board back splash.
I just slapped a couple of coats of black chalk board paint on it.
After finishing the cabinets
I decided that white on the walls and ceiling would have been to much.
I needed another color.
My eyes kept going to the color of the corn in the picture above the sink.
and I ended up with a harvest yellow.
Another thing that I've seen on Pinterest that I love are black window frames.
It's a scary thought but, What the heck... I'll try it!!
I wanted to change the mess of hanging pots and pans.
I love the convenience of them hanging on the wall ..
but they really needed to be neatened up a bit.
As I was searching online for ideas..
I looked up from the computer and Pauls old sled caught my eye.
I sat looking at it ... hmmmm???
And then I put my idea into action...
I also needed some new colorful curtains..
so I recycled one of my favorite tablecloths to make these little valances.
Are you ready for the final reveal?
There are still some things that I am not sure of..
such as the black windows.. I'm not sure how I feel about them.
I am also still searching for the perfect new OLD rectangle table or island .
Meanwhile.. I love it!!! : )
