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
-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:)
