Last week was monumental. I decided on kitchen paint colors!
Benjamin Moore Snowfall White on the top cabinets and Forest Moss on the bottom.
I know, you might wonder at me for not going all white. But while I LOVE the look of an all-white kitchen, I realized that with mustard counter tops, a mustard stove and a black dishwasher I simply wasn't going to achieve that fresh all-white look.
So I went for the green and white mix I'd kinda always had in my head, and really do love the result.....such as it is at this point. ; ) Bravely letting you peak in on the progress and hoping that you can look past the crazy mess and see the potential in progress. (Got my light fixture hung :)
I can't even believe how much work this kitchen has been, but never in a bazillion years could I have accomplished this much without Sister. We started Monday night and worked until she left Thurs afternoon and from morning till night did absolutely nothing but remove wallpaper, caulk, putty and paint, paint, paint in that kitchen.
Okay, we also ate chocolate. And took one break to have a 30 minute cake date in all our sweaty, paint be-speckled glory. But seriously that was the only thirty minutes of technical "fun" we had. Thankfully, any time with Sister is the best good times and we got pretty much every single Very Important Topic talked about and sorted out as we worked away.
It was so, so great having her here. I can't believe how blessed I am to have such a Sister.
Her positive attitude is absolutely unshakeable. We were messy, tired and achey but the happy note in her voice never gave out. She's just pretty darn amazing that way.
We were much sad to see her go, but I'm so thankful we both have iphones. : ) Happy news is that my mum in coming in this week!! so I hope to finish up the kitchen and share many-many pics and tips on that soon. Also on the "to-do" list, paint that Master Bedroom already! And seriously considering painting some floors, am I nuts?
