shortly after i returned from whatever craft weekend (which i promise to write about soon), i decided it was time to paint the red walls in our kitchen white.
i asked my instagram friends what whites they have used, but was too impatient to wait for all of the suggestions and decided to go with the pot of cream from behr (the sample on the far left).
reece was still in school, so lorelai and i got to work.
it was an instant transformation on the walls, so i thought, “why not paint EVERYTHING white?!”
soon, i was testing the paint on the cabinets and drawers…on the hallway walls…and in the playroom.
and, i LOVE it!
it has already made our kitchen seem bigger and brighter.
it’s been A LOT of work, though. i will not be posting any kind of “how to” about this project because i am winging it…i’ve watched videos, read numerous how to’s on my own, but until i actually got into it i had no idea what i was getting into.
the good news? the bases and drawers are all painted.
the cabinet doors have been tricky for me to get a smooth finish on, but i’m working on it…one door at a time.
i think we will be adding new floors to the first floor, too.
think oak laminate plank flooring.
sometimes, you make the time and find the resources to get it done.
and, we are.
home is…hard work and patience.
