The next victims of my “No More White Walls” Project were the kitchen and dining area.
Here are a few photos of the kitchen from before:
Great space! But a lot of boring white walls and builder grade cabinets.
So, I decided to embrace the beachy color palette and go with a bold blue in the kitchen. This color choice was inspired by my Hadley Pottery that I used as ‘art’ in the space.
Here is the kitchen with its new nautical feel!
The dining area was a dilemma because as much as I LOVE the blue color, I was worried that painting the whole room blue would really close it in. Instead I used the blue as an accent wall in that room. Overall I am happy with the look but I want to carry some of the blue around the room with accessories and art… which I will now be able to do because I just got THIS in the mail today!!!
I am so excited!! (Be jealous!!! LOL) I am also a little scared because the directions look complicated. And I don’t know where to PUT the beast! It is bigger than I expected. But I can’t wait to try it out!! I want to make some Subway Art for different areas of the condo. Safe to say that it should keep me off the streets for awhile. =)
Ok, calming down now…back to the dining area…
Here are the lovely white walls. And a photo of special people brave enough to eat the first Thanksgiving dinner that I ever had to cook on my own.
And here we have the space with some COLOR!
Here are the paint colors that I used in the kitchen and dining room update.
Both are Behr Premium Interior Satin (Paint and Primer in one)
QUICK CENTERPIECE PROJECT
I really love having fresh flowers on the table but since they keep dying on me (and I am too cheap to keep buying them every week) I decided to put together this easy centerpiece idea that I saw on Pinterest. A large glass bowl, a candle in a holder, sand and shells…Throw them together and you have a great beachy touch for the table that doesn’t have to be replaced weekly.
I am really happy with the new color in the kitchen…Now if I would just learn to love to cook!
