Last BEIGE room hits the dust! {Kitchen}

Saturday I got an itch to paint.
Google stirred up an idea.
I was sick of the beige.
I hit up Home Depot.


I knew from past experience that I don't really want a turquoise with a lot of green in it. 
I prefer more blue and I wanted it to be dark.
I was a little apprehensive, this isn't a color I would of normally chose for such a large room in my house, but I saw a picture online and it looked awesome there.
BESIDES, IT'S JUST PAINT. Right?

The room.


Ugh. I hate the builder cabinets, but refinishing those is a LARGE undertaking.
Like an entire summer big.  I haven't painted this room because I just could not pick a color I thought would make them look decent AND go with the rest of my house.


My servant husband spent a good hour scrubbing the tops of them, ewwww.
I will not be 'decorating' with any knick knacks up there, they just get dirty and gross.



{AFTER}


I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this color!!!

It goes so much better with the rest of my house.


Now, when I peek in the kitchen I don't cringe at the beige walls :)


I'm glad my bold choice turned out! My Husband was skeptical at first, but I think he's on board now.
Or he's just given up bitching.
Either way I'm happy :)

Now off to unpack my Christmas crap and find SOMEWHERE to put my tree!

  2. LOVE! I hate my builder's cabinets, but we want to move in a year or so, so why bother? I'd love a white cabinet kitchen, those are always so pretty.

  8. I love the new color! It really looks great in your kitchen. I know what you mean about decorating on top of the cabinets. Who is going to be climbing up there every week to dust? Not this gal.

  15. Great color choice! I laughed out loud when I noticed your fridge with the "NO Chocolate" on it, love it! I need to do that only my list would be "No chocolate, No Chips and Salsa, NO cheese and crackers!" You get the idea. You are so cute I hope I can stay strong to have a beautiful transformation like you. Thanks for the inspiration!

  16. Oh wow, I LOVE it! I am always nervous trying darker colors but this looks amazing! And the cute thing on your fridge, is that a big chalkboard magnet or like a vinyl sticker? Need the dets on that. When I finally close on my house, can you just come decorate it for me?? haha

  17. It looks amazing! Love it. I also had a hard time picking a color for my kitchen, and ended up going with an olive-y green, which sounds terrible ha, but looks good. Kitchens are hard to decorate in my opinion, I'm not one for stuff on top of the cabinets either.

  26. Can you come to STL and help me with my house? I am white, off white, and beige all around. The only color is in my little girl's room. I need help!

  27. It is sooo close to my hallway color that I just love! I think it really helps make your kitchen less "builder". I'd take your cabinets though... mine are so ugly and horrible, that even these would be about 100% better. I swear! Painting them white would look awesome though and maybe some cool hardware (which you could do now if you wanted).
