our new ((neutral)) kitchen

an item that has been on my to-do list for a while has been to paint. at first I though I wanted to re-paint the entire interior of our house, but I quickly realized that would be a HUGE project to tackle as our ceilings would have to be painted as well (they are the same color as the walls). I decided to just paint the kitchen instead. here's what our kitchen looked like when we first looked at the house...not terrible, but I just wasn't a fan of how dark the red made our home look and as a neutral loving girl I was having a hard time decorating this space...


I decided I really wanted to brighten things up! I went with sherwin williams lightweight beige (thanks to victoria!!) and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.



Thankful that my dad is always so helpful and willing to go along with my crazy painting ideas!


and the final product : )

my mind is already racing about things I can do to this space to make it even better : ) first up on the list..get rid of our god awful table + chairs! ; ) what do y'all think of the change?!

and just because I'm a sucker for before and afters...

  1. I don't think the table and chairs are bad! All they need is a little stain or paint and they would fit right in with your kitchen!
