My Newly Painted Kitchen

The painters have finished and now I am in the process of getting the house put back together again.  It is a slow process, but everyday a little more gets done.  The kitchen, however, was the first room to be put back in order.  After all, the kitchen is my main room in the house.  I had to set my priorities, right?!.  🙂  A lot of you have been asking for pictures of the newly painted kitchen, so here they are.

This is what the kitchen looked like while the painters were busy.  Previous to painting, the whole house was two-toned, with cream on the walls and white trim all around.  We added color.  Lots of color.  New carpeting will have to be next year’s home improvement project.  We have already spent the budget, and then some, for this year.


This is our kitchen nook area.  The teal accent wall is the color we chose as an accent color for all of the downstairs area.  We love it.  Upstairs, in our room and master suite, we went with a light greyish blue.



Other than the painting, the rest of the kitchen stayed the same.  No new appliances or anything.  We have a big house, and according to the painters, we have a VERY big house.  Our downstairs area is very open and just flows together.  Our kitchen opens up directly into our family room, so I thought I would include this picture as well.  You can really see the teal in this picture.  It just makes everything pop.


I hope you enjoy our new color and new kitchen.  I already have lots of good meals that have come from my new kitchen to share with all of you.  Be patient.  They’re coming your way shortly.

  1. I love all the pictures, especially the blue wall kitchen nook. We have lived in our house for 4 years, done lots of home improvements, yet still have more to do because…life got in the way. Seems we have remodeled every house we’ve ever lived in, and that has been many! We celebrated 34 years of marriage this past June so, you can imagine. You learn a lot along the way!
