Kitchen Mini Makeover ~ Paint


One weekend I decided I needed something fun to do.  Actually, back up...a couple of years ago, we bought our first house.  The window in the kitchen looks like this, with the original red paint.  I like red paint, but these shelves needed some love.  The top shelves usually sit empty except for major holidays (mostly Christmas), or they have something weird sitting on them.  I have had a really hard time coming up with a way I wanted to decorate them. Well, I was so sick of how boring it looked and decided this was the something fun I needed to do.

I have been planning on doing my kitchen red and teal for about a year now, and just haven't really done anything to add some teal.  So, let's meet the teal...


Well, the first coat at least...


I was a tad bit worried after the first coat I must say.  I was really hoping I didn't just make a big ugly mistake.


Once all the red was covered up though, I knew I loved it!  It is so bright and fresh.  I used to sort of hate...not entirely hate...the "fancy" woodwork bordering the whole shelf/window.  After the paint, I love it.  And I like it even more now that things are completed!


Come back tomorrow for the Stache Party, and then on Wednesday, I will be sharing a topiary I made!
