It has been almost a month since the last time I updated about my Kitchen on my other blog. After determining that I really didn't like how my kitchen was turning out my inspiration left me.
Here are the cabinets we weren't so happy with when I last posted.
Well guess what... at the moment they are still this lovely orange. I went out and bought my gallon of Behr Silver Dust and I painted the first coat on the walls and then I didn't touch the walls again until yesterday. I just couldn't seem to get myself motivated to start working again.
Not only was my motivation gone but I was pretty upset that I had already spent $88 which was basically now wasted. I initially decided to start the $200 budget over then I decided I would stay with the $200 and hopefully not go over too much. So I guess we will see if I can make that happen.
As you can see I got the new wall color up and it is almost white. However it does have silvery/grey undertones and in certain lighting you can definitely tell it.
So today I was sitting around thinking about all the money I have already spent, $111 to date, and I started rummaging through all the paint and supplies I have from other projects. Even though I had planned to go with pale greens and greys to finish up the kitchen I thought maybe I could save some money.
So I found 1/2 a gallon of Valspar that was my first bathroom color that was too pale. I then mixed it with about 1/4 of a gallon of my new bathroom color and 1/4 gallon of white. Oddly enough this new mixture almost perfectly matches Behr Porcelain Blue.
I painted just one door so I could really think about it and then let my hubby check it out. It does need one more coat but here is my newly painted door.
I really like it and so does my husband so I will be painting everything that I did in the Sweet Carrot this new blue color. Yay for a free gallon of paint!! After this I will be going back to my original list of what I need to do in the kitchen.
Painting the cabinets
Painting the counter tops and backsplash with the new counter top paint
Painting the linoleum floor (yes this works I have been reading up on it )
Painting and reusing all the hardware
Painting an old farm table and my small pantry cabinet
Painting my fridge to match my stove with appliance paint
I have a lot of trim work and cabinets to do in this new blue color and I will update with pics as soon as I am done. If you haven't read the posts that got me here you can check them out now.
