monday again but with that being said can't believe that only two more are left in the month!!! seriously,where is this year going y'all?!! so last month I had a mini update to my kitchen done and hired painters to paint my dining room, kitchen and kitchen cabinets. I had painted the kitchen and dining room red seven years ago and decided it was way over due for a change. My style has changed and I wanted to update our most lived in spaces to reflect that and not cost a fortune either. I am in love with the results but have two more upgrades (countertops) and new fridge that I will tackle next year.
I had them match the color of my living room walls, which is Ralph Lauren(dovecoat) paint, which they no longer make but luckily I had an old can and my tweeps calmed me when I was panicking about the color. I love the clean and crisp look of having one color throughout the three spaces. The black (color-sherwin willams: domino) on the cabinets with the stainless steel appliances make it pop that much more!
I really dislike clutter (but it is a constant battle) so when I saw this cute black storage bin at Target, I knew exactly where to put it. Misc. chips, paper towels and paper lunch bags are in here, organized and unseen!
updated the hardware on the cabinets with nickel pulls from home depot. I love the ergonomic feel of them and how it continues the stainless steel appeal.The cabinets were painted with an enamel gloss and the walls with a satin finish (best for kids).
When I started brainstorming on what I wanted to actually get done, possibly removing the brick but quickly revising that plan once I found out the work/ how useless my kitchen would be for a few months, budget, time and dreams vs needs. I must say I am very happy with the updates made and LOVE the brick with the current color scheme so much more than with the red walls. So that's my mini update around my casa, thanks for taking a peek and hoping you are having a great start to your week!
