Our Other Weekend Project

Though Glory's pups will forever be the "finest" thing that we helped to accomplish over Memorial Day weekend, there was other work going on around here as well. I would like to introduce you to our newly painted kitchen! Later today I plan to start the puppy introductions... with individual pictures and stats!

This is what the kitchen looked like when we bought the house.
It's hard to get a good feeling for the cabinet color... it was a really light green/grey... I just thought they looked dirty, especially next to all of the white appliances (sorry to the former owner who painted them!).

Here we are mid-project. I took all of the cabinet doors off Saturday. We then sanded and prepped. Sunday we painted. Monday we did touch-up work and were supposed to hang the doors. We ended up doing that yesterday.

And here is the finished project! It's a little difficult to tell color from these pictures. The cabinet structures are the same yellow we've painted elsewhere in the house. The doors are the same color as the wainscoting around the rest of the room. It's a dark mustard/brown type color. I was worried after we picked it out, but I really like it up.

And one final picture of the fridge area/lovely large sunny window that faces the east! Hope you enjoyed the tour!
