So what do you think? Are you a fan of grey painted doors? For those hesitant or not wanting the look of black painted doors, I think this creates just as much interest, without a big commitment. If you aren’t painting your walls, it only takes a few hours to paint a door, and if you absolutely don’t like it, just make sure you have some white paint on hand to switch it back. I’ve had to do that before too!
I know what you’re thinking?! Didn’t she just paint her kitchen a new color, um yes I did, but believe it or not it’s been a year. I used that to justify my new color. I wasn’t even planning on painting the kitchen, and one day while I was walking into the kitchen I envisioned it being light gray. Out of no where the thought just popped into my head. With all the white and warm wood, and grey tones, it seemed like it just went better. Here’s what it looked like before:
Sometimes in design it take a few times before you get it right. You have to be willing to take chances, and try new things until it fits just right. For me, this was so true in the case of the kitchen paint color. And I’m so glad I didn’t talk myself out of it because I had just painted the kitchen not too long ago. The key to “Loving the space you Live in” is to truly Love everything in the space. Sometimes you can like something a lot, and love some other things, but if you love everything in your space, than it feels truly complete. If you caught my home tour at Beneath My Heart yesterday than you got to see a few of these photos already, and if you haven’t visited Traci’s blog yet, be sure to stop by and say HI!
I’m so glad you guys enjoyed our updated kitchen tour. It feels so much brighter, and full of personality. Today I’m going to show you how I painted our pendant lights to resemble weathered, antiqued pendant barn lights. I loved those rustic, perfectly weathered barn lights, but right now they just didn’t fit in our budget. However I didn’t want to sacrifice on look. On a routine quick trip to Lowes, the hubby spotted these, and thought they were close enough to what I was hoping for, and he was right!
I will be back with another post, answering some questions I’ve received about sources, paint color, and more details. I still feel in shock that Thanksgiving is this week, but hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Well, I did it! I know, “Did what”, is what you are thinking? And I know some of you are going to be in sheer shock, because what was wrong with the color it was anyways, right?! Well allow me to introduce you to my fleeting thought, that ended up getting stuck in my head, and felt like it was burning a whole through my forehead, so much so that I just had to act upon it, or I was going to drive myself crazy!!!! Still lost? [Read more…]
