The Final Kitchen Color

Well I'm going to consider myself lucky.  I only had to repaint once.  This is a record for me.  I have to thank my husband for pushing me in the direction of the Wickham Gray.  It's one of the ones I was thinking about, but just wasn't sure if it was going to be too light.  Turns out that it looks really fresh and happy (for a gray).

 It's insanely difficult to get an accurate picture of the color, especially when the weather has been so dark and cloudy.  It actually looks like a soft blue-green in person.  We like it so much that we decided to just go ahead and paint the family room the same color, but don't have pictures yet.  It helps give the illusion of one unified room, even though they aren't, technically.  

So what's left in the never-ending kitchen project?  In no particular order:
-Backsplash- We just picked up samples today.
-Hanging all the light fixtures which we've had for what seems like forever.
-Inside mount valence- I picked out a different fabric since the old one was not cutting it.
-Some sort of shade for the window so that we don't look like zoo animals on display
-DIY narrow farm table
-Seating bench
-Clean up
-Sand/polyurethane the floors

That's it.  Ok, that's still a lot based on how long things seem to be taking.  I promise you that one day we will finish a room.  Stick with me:)


  1. Oh how great it looks! Yeah, to the husband. I can't wait to see how you DIY a table. I want to do one, so I will take notes.

  2. that looks fabulous! So soft and airy.

    You are even building a table?? I am impressed.

  3. so far so good... love the grey!

  4. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

  5. check out ana-white.com. Great source for DIYing furniture.

  6. Thanks Lisa! We'll see how the table goes. My husband will have his hand in it as well since I'm new to this.

  7. I know. I'm totally stoked (yep, I'm from California).

  8. Just visiting for the first time ;) These projects are so tough! The wall cover is lovely. We put in our downstairs hardwood floors .. sanding is kinda messy but well worth it when the job is complete. Enjoy your day!

  9. oops! color - not cover!

  10. Thanks for stopping by! You're right. Home renovation is definitely a lot of work. Hopefully the end result will be worth all this trouble;)
