I have spent the past few days painting walls. Kitchen walls to be exact. Back in December, when we layed the new floor, I foolishly thought our kitchen remodel would be complete by the end of the year. Silly girl. But it is plugging along. Whenever visitors come into the house, they see something new. The new thing they will see this weekend is color.
I extended the orange from the old dining room across the back wall. That chair is my "perch" and those windows look out to the water of Puget Sound. To the right, the last row of drawers still need to be installed.
This wall used to be a color that is hard to describe, a sort of mauvy beige. We all love the new Monticello Yellow and may use it to paint the "big wall" that runs from the vaulted roof line to the basement. The fronts of the pantry drawers were taken from the old cabinets. Originally we were planning to paint them, but I love the way they look as is.
The window trim has been cut, but not painted, and we cannot seem to make up our minds about a back splash.
This space will be getting trim and an additional shelf for jars. Don't you love the way the jars look against the yellow?
It has been over a year since we began our kitchen remodel. All of those days have not been easy, but the results are worth every inconvenience, worry, and pile of dust. I love this kitchen, it is so right for our family and the way we live everyday. It is downright perfect in every way and one day it will actually be complete.
