My mini kitchen makeover is done, and I am so super pleased with the way it turned out!
I waffled back and forth on paint color for WEEKS! Originally I wanted a lighter gray, something super crisp and clean, but the more I looked into grays the more I was pulled into the darker hues. There is something really complex and beautiful about a dark gray.
I finally picked Gray Area by Behr.
It's the coolest thing because in the afternoon when the sunlight is coming through the window it's a cool gray, but in the morning and evening it goes blue!
I absolutely love it, and it did the weirdest thing. It brought out the warmth of the wood cabinets. I had originally planned on painting the cabinets white this winter, but I'm holding off now because I just love the way the wood looks against this paint!
Another fun little feature of the kitchen is the entry way. I knew I wanted a chalkboard somewhere in the kitchen but truly there isn't any room for one, so I found a space!
Can we talk about that weird yellow bar! That's my living room wall, and I have no idea what to paint it! For a while I thought about going one shade darker than the kitchen, but that's just too much heavy colors I'm afraid. I guess it's just going to stay white until I figure it out, because despite that yellow look in this picture it really is white, or off white, pale beige?
The next step for the kitchen (after all the other rooms get their paint) is possibly painting the trim.
Something like this. What do you think?
Oh, and just so you know. The cutest thing in my kitchen is this...
