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!
