What do you think of that color? We are getting ready to paint our kitchen, cabinets and all. I will spare you the hideousness and hold out on the before pictures til it's finished. We have one of those pretty little hallway kitchens, you know what I am talking about right? Seriously. I hate out kitchen. But it's mine and I have to live with it so I am hoping some paint color and making it my own will help a little. It is SO SMALL. We have no cabinet space at all, none. Our fridge is gigantic, our stove is itty bitty and green. I believe it's an apartment size. Though we won't be updating the appliances just yet we will be updating everything else. Out cabinets were put it in about 2 years ago but they are ugly wood color and fake, no hardware. I do like our countertops though. They aren't bad. We are painting the cabinets black, I know gasp ( my gramma probably just fell out of her chair, sorry grams ). I just told you my kitchen is itty bitty and I know your thinking black? In a little kitchen? But we do get pretty good lighting in there as we have a big ugly window over the sink and 2 more littler windows in there. I like the look of the white cabinets but it's just not for me, I cannot imagine having white cabinets with 3 boys in the house. No way. So I am wanting that green on the top of the walls, and white on the bottom with black cabinets? Can I do that? Have the bottoms of my walls white with black cabinets? I need help, I am HORRIBLE with paint colors, hence the completely red living room and dining room. In the kitchen we have the chair rail? but there isn't much of it and we were going to paint the bottom of it white and the top the green. Oh heck here is a small picture of what I am talking about....
Seriously I cannot believe that I am showing you these pictures. Am I the only one that has a list of a million of the simplest little things that needs to be done? Like replacing that awful disgusting mini blind for example. I am trying to knock out all the little things around here, we need to paint all the trim, yep we skipped that part when we painted the walls. The new wall we added still needs trim, lots of blinds need replacing, there is just so many easy little fixes that I am determined to cross off my list in the next couple of weeks. Oh and about the green stove you are all drooling over. I know you are all wondering where can I get a beauty like that? I promise when we get new, I will let you all know and you can fight over it. Seriously it's a beauty.
These are the cabinets I told you about. And really this is about it for our cabinet space. We have 2 more one above the stove and one above the fridge that you need a ladder to get to, so needless to say they don't get used. I have no room in here to add any storage so I am working on a solution for that. Any ideas? You are all brilliant, help me out.
I made hubby hang that shelf above my little cabinet in the dining room, and I hate it. I don't know how to decorate it. I kind of like what's on the shelf but I need help with decorating the cabinet. Any ideas? I think it looks junky as is. Should I take the shelf off the wall and hang a picture or mirror or something else? What do you all think?
Ok enough with the kitchen issues. Menards has these bags of 50 clothespins for .99 cents and I can't wait to show you what I am doing with them! Nothing seriously spectacular but cool!
Ohhhh and I stocked up on some much needed spray paint! 2 cans of heirloom white, 1 glossy black, and 1 cinnamon color for some fall projects!
Target has all these cute little letters marked down to like .48 cents, These will be cute for some monogram projects.
These were in the dollar section which was loaded with half off items. Half off a dollar, I will take it! haha! These are nice big magnet letters, These will be great for something!
And letter stickers for 1.00, can never have to many of these!
These little water squirters were clearanced for .24 cents, I bought about a dozen as I think they are great for goody bags for my sons upcoming birthday. Something to fill them up with.
These cute sprite tins will be great redone and hello they were half off too and only .50 cents.
Well are you still reading? Did I bore you? Would love to hear your feedback on my kitchen colors and cabinet setup! I need all the help I can get! Over the next few weeks I will be showing you my living room, craft room ( eek! ), dining room and other rooms. Have a Wonderful Tuesday!
