Smells Like Paint - Reno Day 3
The smell of paint hit me like a wall as I walked in the house today. But it was a great smell and sight! The counter tops are in and the cabinets and ceiling are repainted. Looks like a completely different kitchen. Still no dinner at the kitchen table and dinner was from the freezer but we are probably more than 1/2 way through. Awesome.
Tomorrow its off to Lowe's for back splash, a decision on wall color and flooring color. I am hoping that the accent in the back splash will have a color we can pull from for the wall color. If you look at the top pic there is a great reddish-orange that would be ideal for the wall BUT our entry way/ living room, which is attached to the kitchen, is red and yellow and we do not want those colors to clash. So that is definitely TBA. As for the floors we are thinking about pulling the dark brown from the granite for the floor. We were originally thinking a light/medium color but the darker wood is more appealing now that everything is in place.
Let's see what tomorrow holds... C'mon Lee!!!
