Painting the Kitchen

Alright, I'm back. Yes, I know it's been a while but, well, I've been too busy being lazy to do anything around the house. But on Thursday night, my mom sent me a text offering to take the dog for a couple days so I could get some painting done. (Have I mentioned that my mom is awesome?!) Turns out that was the motivation I've been looking for, so 4 hours of taping, 5+ hours of priming and painting, and a gallon of paint later, the kitchen, laundry room and part of the pantry are done! Things I learned: painting is fun, taping is not. It looks good though, so I guess it was worth it!

Before, with green cabinet paint over-spray.

This is what took so long. Painting the walls and ceiling BEFORE the cabinets were in would have been nice.

After! It just looks white here, but actually its a really nice cream color.

A better idea of the paint color.

Laundry room before.

Laundry room after. So fresh and so clean.

It looks awsome. Thanks for the glowing compliments. We thoroughly enjoyed having Scout down for her first sleep-over. She's welcome anytime (you and Jose too!).
