We got surprisingly far on our paint job! Here's the post from last week if you need to catch up. So far in fact, that we're done! I was sort of expecting to hit a few snags and this would last into the coming week, but everything went really well and all 4 walls are painted. It looks GREAT.. now we do have to put our whole kitchen back together, but it is a great chance to tidy up and tackle some mini projects too. Here's a few before & afters:
our kitchen decorating agenda, and has us both really excited to tackle a few furniture projects in there. So these 3 side by side photos are showing the aqua bay...
- Sink & Fireplace walls: Behr's Aqua Bay in Semi-gloss, the paint & primer in one. This saved a LOT of time, no priming necessary.
- Glass Door & Stove walls: Behr's Tropical Dream also in semi gloss, paint & primer in one, to the rescue!
I love the teal wall showing through the back of the hutch, and lucky for us the back wasn't providing any support at all. However, I'd love a fun fabric on the back. If you want to see some of my ideas for the back early, check out the board I've started on Pinterest to help us make a decision... The Great Hutch Makeover. I have pinned a ton of the fabric samples I'm considering for the back, this will be a really hard decision! Feel free to comment on them in Pinterest with your opinions, I'll need all the help I can get deciding this one...
I'll have full details on the hutch project in a future post too, oh - we went with chalk paint - and I remember now why I love it so much. Easy coverage! Ralph's a convert too, he was pretty impressed with it. We used the DIY Chalk Paint recipe from the Roll Top Desk project.
What do you think of our color choices? Hope it makes you root for some teal blues in your kitchen, it's given that room such a fresh feeling!
