Don't be a prude. It totally rhymes. And you know I have a bit of a potty mouth, and the "b" word is my second favorite behind the "s" word. And what else rhymes with "kitchen??" So go with it. This isn't your grandma's blog.
So anyway, as you know, we repainted the kitchen this weekend. And by "we" I mean me. No cred for Mr. Lowe here. All your girl. The result was ah-maz-ing. I certainly loved our purple kitchen, but the lighter brighter Lotus Leaf was a welcome change! Let's dive right into pics, shall we? Here's an idea of just where we were before. Dark purple walls, dark accents, and (EGAD!) vertical blinds.
And here we are today:
Aw hells yeah. How airy and bright is that?? What a difference!! There's still plenty left to do. I plan to add a window treatment to the window above the sink, replace the green rug with something a little more neutral and durable (maybe jute?), and replace the slipcovers on the chairs with some pretty new grey ones. But how about no more vertical blinds?! Woohoo!!! I'm thinking I'm going to add some bamboo blinds above them a la my fave blog Young House Love, as seen here. Something to fill in the wall between the trim and the curtain rod above the door.
And what about that spray painted mirror above my favorite piece of furniture in the whole house, the buffet? Definitely lightens up that area. Mama likey.
Hope you had a fantastic weekend !! I'm exhausted!! And sometime in the next few weeks I'm hoping my good man allows me to repaint those kitchen cabinets to look a little more like our bathrooms. Fingers crossed.
