If you know me well, I'm sure you're as sick of hearing me talk about my kitchen as I am of thinking about it. There are always those darn lingering projects, and coupled with our new normal being busier than we're used to, things just take a lot longer than what we prefer.
But, we are pretty much done. And I absolutely love it.
There was drama with these counter stools. I searched for days to find the best ones out there. Do you realize how expensive wood counter stools are? I found some on Overstock and they looked white enough; I figured they would be pretty darn close to the cabinet color. Wrong. They looked YELLOW in my kitchen. I could not return them, so I geared myself up for another painting project. Sanding, priming and painting chairs is a project I will never do again. But they are really nice. And the color is an exact match now. Just don't ask how many weeks it took me.
And of course the crown moulding. My dad is smart and handy and after playing around and learning how to cut those angles for a good portion of the morning he started making awesome cuts and now we have moulding up that adds the perfect touch. It's all about the finishes. (And the ceiling has also been patched and painted since this picture was taken.)
I do love it. White kitchens are modern but classic and so clean looking.
But, I would love some help. With so much white, I feel like the light green color I have in there now is too light. I need a color that will be a contrast. I know I don't want red, but any other color suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (I'm even considering brown!) It will have to wait until 2012, because I'm decorated out for the year.
