Happy not only because it's finally finished, but because we really love it! It's so cheerful!
Green is our favorite color. For those who have asked - the color name is "Grape Leaves" and we got it at Home Depot in the Behr paint colors, we chose the semi-gloss kitchen and bath finish. We fell in love with this color when we saw it in a gorgeous kitchen at the Street of Dreams at Marina Bay here in Gainesville.
It was quite a job for the two of us to finish this by ourselves. I'm not usually scared of heights, but I did not enjoy being 13 ft up on a ladder trying to reach the peaks of that ceiling!
It's not perfect, but it's perfectly fine with us! We will hire someone to come in and do the crown molding when the times comes!
This was the hardest room in the house to paint, especially because we could not use the sprayer. The overspray was too much, so we will have to use that when we get the walls up down here in the basement, before any molding or floors are put in.
I'm very proud of us for deciding to "just do it" and really motivated to do the rest of the house.
We've decided to turn this into our dream home, there's plenty of room and potential for adding all the elements we want.
Now the only thing I need to do to finish the kitchen/breakfast room is decide on a fabric for the window treatments.
I keep thinking a black & white toile might be nice, but would sure love to have some suggestions from anyone who reads this.
Tell me what fabric and style of window treatment you think would look good in my kitchen (and please feel free to share links to any fabric samples you like!)
Hmmm, could this be a good idea for a contest?
Who wants to win something pretty???
I'll figure out a prize and post about it tomorrow. Meanwhile I have to get some work done while you look at my "new" kitchen!
