our sunny kitchen

I'm so excited about this post! I finally get to show off our kitchen! And, I'm even more excited that I'm linking to it on Simply Seleta's Fabulous Fridays! Seleta has a wonderful blog, a beautiful home and impeccable taste! So, thank you Seleta for hosting Fabulous Friday's. I'm excited to participate! Take a few minutes today to check out her blog and all the other fabulousness going on. So, the kitchen. We've had the doors off the cabinets since last August. They'd been stripped and primed and were waiting for us to catch up. We started painting on weekends in mid-February. THIS WEEK Chris finished installing the doors! Phew! Ta-da! I could not be happier. The yellow is so cheery, without being overly bright and citrus-y. When the sun is out this room radiates. I love it! I have to share a few things we learned in the process:
  • Paint can and will run off the walls. Panic can and may ensue. Well, from one of us. Can you guess which one? ;)
  • Cabinet doors nearly 90 years old may be warped. Plan accordingly.
  • Built-ins are beautiful. And, very time consuming to paint!
  • My husband is color blind. He thinks the walls are brown.
  • We are not open cabinet/shelving people.
And, of course, here is a before: What is that color, you ask? *Lettuce-alone*. Seriously. I think Chris misses the color a little :).
