New color in the kitchen


I am proud to say that I got the kitchen painted and the upper niches decorated.  I painted it two weekends ago and got the decorating done yesterday.  I was in such a hurry to get it painted I forgot to take a picture of the old wall color.  It had a faux finish to it and I wanted a solid color.  I went light in the kitchen since it doesn't get much natural light.  We have a covered deck that wraps around the kitchen so it stays pretty dark.  The color I used is Putnam Ivory by Benjamin Moore.



Here is a picture of the wall color when the last owners lived here.  It is hard to see the faux finish in this photo but it is the only one I have.




Here are pictures of the niches that I decorated.  You can see three in the first photo above and the fourth is on the wall to the right of the picture.




 This little white piggy is going to be brown soon.  He doesn't show up to well so I think that he will look good brown.




I also decorated above the refrigerator since you can't open the doors to the cabinets all the way.  The refrigerator doors sit up a bit higher than the top of the fridge so the cabinet doors hit them.


I found another before we moved in picture showing the breakfast nook (all the furniture in the below picture is the former owners when it was on the market).   I didn't take a picture of that area yet as I am waiting for my new curtains to arrive.

    1. Thank you. My kitchen screams to be Tuscan but I will be changing the color of the island to white so the French Country will blend better.

  8. Great kitchen, I am sooo envious of those niches! I have a chicken collection too, but no where near as pretty to display them in my old house. Thanks for the wonderful eye candy!

    1. Thank you Jann. I don't mind faux finishes as I just did one in my office and my husbands. I was just wanting a lighter color in the kitchen as it doesn't get much sunlight. Have a wonderful day!
