BEFORE: beige on beige on beige.
it took 2 coats of base and 3 coats of red to paint over those dang roosters. you can’t tell from this picture, but the tan part is actually wallpaper too. i liked the texture of it, so we decided to just paint over it rather than take it down.
the red made a huge difference! bryan and i had always wanted a red kitchen, and it helped a lot with all the beigeness. we would eventually like to add some tile backsplash above the cabinets and i’d like to add some wall art to the wall you can’t see (the one opposite the cork board with all our pictures/artwork).
but we’re planning on living here a while, so that can wait! as for now, i love cooking here. the shape makes it easy to work in, i’ve got lots of counter space, and i like that it opens up to the den so i can be part of conversation.
