kitchen progress III: paint colors

DSC_0191Now that the cabinets are up, we need paint! Paint on those beautiful cabinets, crown moldings, walls, and ceiling! That’s a lot of paint! I suggest bringing as many samples as you want home. Then, check out the lighting in your space with each of the colors. We did that during the day and at night and were able to see some of the undertones you may not see at the store. Some have blue, yellow, reds…

Our contractor is a Sherwin Williams guy, so we had it color matched in an acrylic semi-gloss. It’s such a glossy goodness; I will suggested it to all!

DSC_0195We then moved on to the wall color! I bought a bunch of samples and painted those on the walls! We both liked Ozark Shadows AC-26, but I wanted a little less bold/dark color with the white kitchen… So, we went a step down on the color palette with Harbor Gray AC-25. Here’s the samples with both wood and white cabinets.

Painted!!I’m just loving our choices, and it’s coming together beautifully. But yes, we need to paint that door and trim to match the space – we know!! It’s on the docket for this weekend! Here’s a before/progress pic, too!

I cannot wait for the countertops and backsplash to be here! I’ll share all that goodness next!! They are so gorgeous; I would sleep with the sample, if the hubs didn’t think I was crazy!

Thanks for reading, friends! Happy Week!

  1. Won’t it be fun when all is done and can start putting things back in place. Everything now looks so bright. Wait till Jackson sneaks in with a color in his hand. Oh my.
    Have fun.
