I survived the half-marathon, and let’s just say it wasn’t my prettiest race, by any stretch. But, I finished, and the whole goal was to get some of my running mojo back. And, as an unexpected bonus, I beat my husband. 🙂
I recently posted about my family room painter’s remorse, and am happy to report that I am no longer remorseful! The paint is staying, and I have been working on a second coat. I have mentioned that we’re planning on redoing our kitchen cabinets, and painting them white. Originally, I was going to hire this out, but now we’re considering doing it ourselves, starting with a small section of the kitchen. The understanding is that if it’s a huge fail, we will hire it out. A friend has a heavy duty paint sprayer, and I’ve been researching it, so we’re going to give it a try.
I want to do a glaze of some sort too, and we’re going to paint the island a different color. This is kind of the grand plan at the moment. We want to use the black on the island and the cream color on the perimeter cabinets. These are the samples I’m using.
As for paint colors, in the entry, great room and connecting hallways, we’re going with Benjamin Moore’s Palladian Blue. I gave a sneak peek of this color on the in our family room here.
And Aegean Teal is the plan for the dining room. While going through the color selection process, I just found myself picking this color over and over without even realizing it. So, I decided it was a must-have.
And here it is with my attempt at using Benjamin Moore’s Personal Color Viewer tool.
At any rate – I’m digging it. What do you think?
In other exciting news – the sectional is being delivered next Saturday! Yippee!!
