First off let me show you the envelopes I sent the girls this week:
Then……do you remember this? This is my kitchen not that long ago:
AND…..ta-da……this is my kitchen today! All bright and happy and I LOVE it!
I did not match the tile to the paint color……actually, if you'd see the glass tile in person, you wouldn't believe it even looks green. It's a beige color called "cloth". AND…behind the tile, the wall was painted with white primer so you can't blame it on paint either. I was surprised to say the least that it took on a green hue, but not in a bad way. I really like it. I just hope I don't get sick of green!
Note the creaminess of the cabinets next to the underside of the soffit which is painted "ceiling white"…..the color on the cabinets is "Maritime White" by Benjamin Moore. They match my bisque Corian countertop perfectly. (It only took 3 tries before we got the right color……that's a whole other story.)
This morning, I popped over to Target and bought pale green towels and washcloths for the kitchen….matchy-matchy, you know! lol Next is a new refrigerator. Believe it or not, mine has been working perfectly for about 15 years and it's almond. Hubby is insisting on stainless. I guess I'll cave this time. Ten years ago when we put in the countertops, and did the original back splash and bought the other appliances, I insisted that the almond refrigerator was fine…..and even now, it seems a shame to get rid of something that still works okay.
So, that's the news here! Needless to say, I didn't read a book this week…….BUT, I am working on a new pair of socks which you will see soon! Have a super week……!!
