Kitchen Painted!

First, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who wished me well and sent birthday wishes. I feel much better!

Now, on to the kitchen. I finally finished painting ...

I don't love the color, but it is brighter now. I'd really like to do a cream, but this will be fine for now. Mr. T had painted it just after the remodel was finished to match my Fiestaware. I was too pregnant at the time to care. The color wasn't horrible. It just doesn't work with the other colors on the main floor. You can see the old paint color here.

I went to HomeGoods yesterday after picking up my car and got the platter for over the range. I really love it!

I also took out my Fiestaware and put milk glass in the display shelves.

That fixture above the table has SO got to go. I've been meaning to replace it forever, but as usual, have no time for such trivial things. Trips to places like Home Depot have become complicated since I can't take the Wild One anymore. She's afraid of those beeping vehicles they use to move the merchandise around! Since they're napping and Mr. T is home, I should sneak out now to see what they have!


  1. Ok, I am so loving the paint color if it is the same as it is coming across in your pictures. It is very lovely with the creams and whites. Hang in there...You are doing a great job!!! Love Tiina...

  2. Thanks Tiina! The paint has grown on me. I'm very fickle when it comes to paint though, so we'll have to see how long it lasts! ;-)

  3. Great color. I really like it. I think you will be able to use all kinds of different colors as accessories and change things all the time. Many colors will go with it and I love to have the background neutral and then just add the splash that I want. Your cabinets and kitchen are gorgeous. Love the new platter, it is so pretty. Hugs, Marty
