Kitchen redo

While we still weren't finished with the bathroom or our bedroom, I decided that I wanted to paint the kitchen.  I was bored and wanted to be doing some kind of house project, but I was waiting for Jason's help to finish somethings in the bathroom and the bedroom so the next project was the kitchen.  I headed to Home Depot and got my gallon of paint (by the way I LOVE the new Behr paint and primer all in one paint, it works awesome).  I put the boys down for their nap and I started painting.  I was able to get the whole kitchen painted doing two coats that day.  The only area I didn't get to was where the fridge was I needed Jason to help me move the fridge.  I was able to get to the fridge area a few days later and Jason and I got up the baseboards.  The only thing we have left to do is paint the baseboards.

I am pretty happy with how it came out, it is much lighter and fresher.  My inspiration for the color was some dishes that I found at Tai Pan.  I loved the color and knew that was what I wanted my kitchen to look like.  Jason thinks I am weird for this but now I want to get rid of all my dishes and go buy new ones that will match the kitchen.

I do need to make some curtains but I am still deciding what I want to do, so until I figure that out the blinds will have to do.

Here is the kitchen before.  I couldn't find any recent pictures this one was taken will we were in the process of finishing the kitchen years ago.  We had the lighter green in the kitchen and the darker green for an accent wall in the dining room.

PRETTY!! I like the green too, but it's always nice to have such a (relatively) quick change. Anytime you are bored, I know a house that you can work on. hahaha
