I knew that painting my kitchen was going to be a beast of a project but I really had NO idea how much of a beast it really would be. I borderline went on melt down mode but a nice conversation with my sister picked me back up.
My house was built in the 50's and my kitchen has all the original 50's decor. I love turquoise and red together, especially in a kitchen and that is what I did! I can't believe it took me so long to re-do my kitchen! Long time coming and I am very happy. It reminds me of an old school soda shoppe.
Here is the before, I apologize for the dark pictures, I took them at night.
So, that is the before of my dreary kitchen.
Here is the after...
I am going to paint the cabinet that the mixer is on white. Just haven't quite gotten around to that yet.
Cedella like to get in all my pictures.
I made new kitchen curtains to go along with the theme. I used red seersucker fabric, turquoise rick rack, and red pom poms.
I spray painted the kitchen chairs white and recovered them with red and white checkered oil cloth.
Still my most favorite find for this kitchen is the vintage bottle opener.
I used all Behr paint from Home Depot. The wall color is Spa and for the cabinets and baseboards I used Ultra Pure White. I still have some work do and will post when I get it accomplished. But, for now, I am happy with it. Now, on to my craft room!
