Well here are my before pictures for the kitchen. These are not pretty pictures in my opinion but that is what the kitchen looked like. I knew I could not live with these colours.
In this picture you can just see the white drop leaf table that I use as my kitchen island. The table has been in the family for two generations. It will have to wait for next spring to be re-painted. The kitchen cabinets, the window trim and the baseboards were all painted in BM Cloud White. My walls are painted in BM ( Benjamin Moore ) Gray Cashmere which is a soft green with grey in it. I love the colour. I love pastels. There is a new countertop and a double stainless sink.
Now the table and chairs are painted and I had this material in my stash so the other day I re-did one seat cover to see if I liked it. I have not made my final decision as yet. I think I would like some material with some pink in it. I am planning on painting my china cabinet a very soft pink colour. I am really very pleased with the table and chairs being white.
I guess I will have to do something about that sad looking ceiling fan. I do not really want to take it down as it has three light bulbs in it and gives me lots of light in the kitchen. Perhaps painting the blades and the hardware with white or silver would make it look better. For now it will stay like it is as painting season is over for another year.
Sorry if this picture is not clear but my hands were a little shaky when I took the picture.
