Yesterday I shared the story behind choosing a new color for our kitchen, and today, as promised, I'm back to share more pictures of the room with you.
So just a quick update in case you missed any of the post leading up to this one.
I painted the wood range hood mount white - Post Here
I also painted the tile backsplash white - Post Here
And then I painted the walls from Benjamin Moore/Horizon Gray to Benjamin Moore/Aegean Teal - Post Here
And actually, Here's a before before, this is how the Kitchen looked when we first moved in:
What a difference a couple cans of paint can make, right?
I have a ton of pictures to share so I'm going to try to keep the chit chat down a bit, and welcome you to take a look around. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in a comment below.
I had originally planned to replace my wicker (food cover) lamp shades with something else, but in the end I really felt like they belonged in the room. Plus, you all know I have a thing for wicker :)
When I shared a picture of my kitchen on Instagram, I got quite a few comments about my bamboo stools. They were actually a yard sale find that I made over and shared in this Post.
Speaking of Instagram, a few friends and I are hosting a #HomeYouHave challenge. The challenge is to restyle a spot in your home using ONLY items you already own. The point of it is to inspire you to fall in love with your homes without feeling pressured to buy anything new to achieve that feeling.
This week's Challenge is Kitchens, so if you want to play along you can by sharing your kitchen using the hashtag #homeyouhave. Be sure you are following me on Instagram for more details. Every Monday we announce a new challenge, and every Sunday we pick a favorite to share on ALL of our feeds.
It's really fun, you should play along.
With that said, I just want you to know that I re-decorated our kitchen without buying anything New. Even the paint was leftovers from another project.
I did say I was going to keep the chit chat down, right? ha ha! I meant from now on.
The personalized photo magnets from Tiny Prints are still a favorite of mine. See more Here.
I know it's a bit hard to tell, but I removed the curtains I had before and opted for vinyl blinds that I had custom cut at Lowes. These blinds actually made a big difference in the room. Not only do they give us the privacy we were needing, but by removing the curtains the window just looks so much bigger and clean lined now. We are really liking the new blinds.
Oops, I guess I did buy something new for the room, The blinds, and a pineapple :)
So that is my Fresh New Blue kitchen!
I hope you enjoyed the tour.
