Let's do really bad before pictures, just like in the weight loss ads, so that when I show you the final result, you'll be more in awe. Here's one that really showcases the color and my housekeeping skills in a great way.
How about a couple from when the kitchen looked even more like a war zone?!?
Okay, now let me show you what a lighter color and some deep cleaning can do in your average, run of the mill kitchen. Disclaimer: I am not a designer with beautiful photography and a plethora of styling products, so you too can do this at home.
Pretty different, huh? I ended up going with Benjamin Moore Classic Gray on the walls. It's a little lighter than I had hoped for, but I can always paint again in six months after I forget what a pain it was this time.
How about you? Are you trying to finish up any projects before spring break? Are you like me, full of energy before the project starts and then crawling across the finish line at the end?!?
Post Update: Today I'm linking up to Kelly's Korner. She has challenged us to show an area of our home that is difficult for us to decorate. If you're visiting me from there today, I'm open to opinions on the paint color. I've lived with this light, almost white, gray for about a month and I'm still not sure if it's working. This room is a challenge for me with all the dark woodwork. I'd like a color that brightens the room while also complimenting the cabinets. Any suggestions?? :)
