Today I want to show you our new (to us) kitchen! First, a few "before" shots:
Originally the kitchen and breakfast area were painted a nice, sunny yellow. I was thrilled because I thought the color would work really well with my furniture, which it did. Unfortunately, however, once I added my buffalo check curtains (an absolute necessity, as the kitchen faces the back of the house and gets crazy sun) it looked like Big Bird's house. Yellow, yellow, and more yellow.
Luckily, our landlord was OK with us doing a little painting. As soon as I got his approval, I was at the store in a heartbeat! The color? Sherwin-Williams' "Comfort Gray."
Seriously, I had that kitchen painted in a few hours! Nothing like impatience as the great motivator, huh?
The curtains seem right at home now, and I think the new wall color looks great with the trim and the cabinets.
I am also loving the lack of bugs out here in California...we can leave these doors open all the time!
Remember my subway sign? It's got a new home now!
And of course no room (of mine) would be complete without a wreath of some kind. I have an obsession.
