If you follow me on Twitter or if you ever saw my post here, then you know that I have struggled with redecorating my lower level and especially my kitchen. Like struggled BIG time. I have whined and moaned and stressed over what to do with my kitchen for over a year now. Ridiculous really. Well, enough was enough. It was time to just be rid of the red and do something…anything!
I have had red and yellow in my life for eleven years and am just over it! I tried three different grays on my wall and thought I had found “the one”. But then after living with a patch of “the one” for a month it depressed me. Gray is trendy and I want to be cool and trendy, but I’m just not. Gray was making me feel sad. Sadness is the last thing I need, so I finally decided to just plunge in and and paint the kitchen a neutrally tan. This is what I ended up with.
Whaaa??? Wait a minute. Didn’t I say I was over the whole yellow thing? Isn’t that color yellow? And while we’re asking questions here, how in the world did my kitchen get so incredibly cluttered? So, yes. After a year of debating and whining and stressing, I chose a color that was one shade darker than the rest of the yellow in the rest of my house. NO!!!
I hit Twitter and begged once again for help. Rhoda, Marianne, Myra, Chris, and Layla came to my rescue! Sea Salt was voted as a potential winner. Layla sent me this mock-up picture with a Sea Salty-esque looking kitchen. Although this color is way more blue than Sea Salt, I was sold on it.
Click the video below to see (sort of) what it looks like. Excuse the mess but whatev. Keepin’ it real peeps! Tomorrow hubs and I are going to start on board and batten. Yikes! Pray for us. I want to still be married at the end of this!
And here are some fabrics that I’ll be using on our lower level for throw pillows and some mistreatments. I also have bamboo blinds going in.
