Are you in Holiday Mood yet? The season officially kicks off tomorrow with the big meal!! We are busy getting ready to host tomorrow (have I mentioned that before?!?!?), but I thought I’d quickly share some progress we’ve made in the kitchen. Hey, that is where everyone seems to spend their time, right … especially on Thanksgiving (or in front of the TV watching football … ahem, men).
We’ve been busy painting it … wait for it … white and light grey. Shocking, huh?
Here’s a couple before shots (notice the red brick, lighter brick, yellow paint, and blue):
A couple months ago, we painted over the brick wall and the blue:
And as for the blue walls:
And now on to our more recent progress…
First up, tackling that red brick backsplash here:
Red brick is now white (Valspar color matched to Benjamin Moore’s Cloud White) … MUCH better (in my opinion) ….
Next up, tackling that yellow. I found a great grey at Lowe’s, Gravity by Valspar:
So that’s all the progress for now, but it does make a HUGE difference (again … in my opinion).
We still have quite a bit to do. Here’s our Kitchen to-do list from when we moved in:
Paint over sign and brick pillar/column Paint over blue Paint over red brick backsplash Paint over yellow
- Paint inside of cabinets (white)
- Paint Green ‘overhang’ above peninsula
- Paint all trim … yep, white.
- Refinish floors … we’re thinking dark brown
- New rugs
- Eventually …. replace brick backsplash with something more fun
- Fancy fume hood … ha! Maybe someday in my dreams??
One more time, for my sake …
And now … some progress:
Now, I wonder if anyone will notice tomorrow on Thanksgiving???
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I hope everyone has a great day with their families or friends! Happy Thanksgiving!!
