So, I am continuing to work on my kitchen (and break through my decorating fears and just go for it). Since I plan on documenting this entire room’s make-over, I thought it was important to post some ugly before pictures.
So, there are some things in this kitchen that I can’t change (no matter how much I want to), because of both time, money and skills reasons. Such as the tiles, floor and cabinets. Key areas that need attention include the fridge (and the counter beside the fridge), and the plants at the window.
Today I went to a hardware store, picked up some paint (and so I had to pick up some paint samples too…). I picked a colour for the kitchen doors, and I think I picked new hardware for those doors too (although I didn’t pick them up).
I picked up these Martha Stewart paint samples for only $1! I was only going to buy the light green and teal, but when I found out they were on clearance, I decided to pick up a bunch. I’m sure I’ll use them!
Finally, here is my “colour palette” for the kitchen (although this is a pretty loose colour scheme, it gives a general idea for the colours and moods I am hoping to have):
