This is my second try at the whole blogging thing. I neglected my first blog while I was pregnant. But, I have a handsome, healthy baby boy, that is a direct result of my laziness! Now I am ready to get back in the game with a new blog. And, I am ready to finish what I have started in our kitchen. Our kitchen started out as one with maple cabinets with a honey finish, nickle hardware, stainless steel appliances, wood floors with a nutmeg finish, an awful "bubble" light, and blah Formica counters. My wonderful husband bartered website design for some incredible granite counters. I love them!! I think the name is Star White or Diamond White. They are beautiful! They are creamy white with flecks of warm greys and black. So, I thought, why stop there? Why not redo the whole kitchen in this not even 3 year old house? I then proceeded (with the help of Mr. Hughes) to install a white subway tile back splash. It looks good, especially for our first tiling project. Then, we got rid of the AWFUL bubble light... can you tell I hated that thing? Bugs would fly up there and die. Gross! So, we installed a new large schoolhouse light and installed a coordinating pendant in the breakfast nook. The pendant could be a little larger, but we are living with it for now. Now I am ready to paint the cabinets. Our kitchen is small. So I want to brighten the cabinets with creamy white paint on the uppers and possibly paint the lowers grey like this:
I have been toying with idea for some time. I am concerned how the grey will look next to our floors. I am getting the itch to paint them soon. The real project is going to be keeping the little one out of the way!!
