After teasing everyone Monday with the sneak peaks of the color I painted my kitchen, here is the promised reveal of the new paint job:
Again the color is Glidden's Whispering Wheat. I did the whole kitchen with one gallon of $20 paint. I had a giftcard so the project was almost free. I say almost because I happened to find this chandelier at Home Depot that was only $65. Hubby was nice enough to install it for me although there was some grumbling involved because nothing is ever as easy to install as it seems. It all worked out though and I love the color of the fixture and warm glow it casts on the room.
Even Emma enjoys the new color. Only one cat walked through the paint this time. Luckily, kitty paint prints come off of tile easily.
And here's one more before shot with the yellow paint and boring light:
And the more neutral and fresher after:
Now I just need to figure out what to do about curtains. I'm not sure whether to do just add valances or roman shade style curtains or to add long curtains like I had before. I'm not crazy about the blinds, but they are the wooden kind and are in every window of the house. I will be fixing the one slat on the left that is broken. I need to replace the curtain that covers the door to the laundry room on the right. We can't shut the door because the litter box is there so I need something to cover it. I may look for a pretty fabric shower curtain to hang there. I also need to decide what I want to hang on the walls.
My living room and dining room look really dark here, sorry for the bad photos.
