Photo from Pinterest
Sorry, I've been a little quiet over the past few days. I decided to take a little vacation from sewing and dive into another home improvement project. . . painting my kitchen! If you remember a few months ago I was itching to give my kitchen a bit of a make over and I was contemplating painting it red. Well, after further research I changed my mind because the concept of having to put 5-6 coats of red on these walls was not exactly what I had in mind. Especially because my kitchen is fairly sizable. So, I shelved that idea and put my kitchen redo on the back burner so to speak. Well, with Spring in full bloom around here I couldn't help myself the other day and I went to Home Depot to start looking at paint chips and I decided on a lovely shade of celery green and I really like it. I had started poking around on Pinterest and saw this photo and really loved the cool and calming feeling it had. At first I wasn't sure because it was such a big change going from a rich chocolate brown to such a bright and sunny color but now we are all loving it! Plus I have to say it makes my kitchen look about 5 times bigger. Today, I will be back at it as soon as the sun comes up and I really hope that I can finish it today. Then to find some really pretty fabric to recover my kitchen chairs and then to accessorize. Then to start working on the powder room.
