First Coat Of Paint and Counting.....

I just wanted to share a few pics of the new kitchen color and trim. The painters were supposed to be here at 8:00....hadn't heard from them by 8:30 so I called....said they'd be here in 30 minutes. They finally got here at 10:00! Oh, well, what can you do?

As soon as I could, I left to go get some dark bronze spray paint for my original cabinet hardware. I did replace about 5 knobs with old fashioned cup type hardware in an oil rubbed bronze finish but no way was I going to pay to replace all the other hardware and hinges. I've used that bronze spray before and it matches the new hardware perfectly.



Then on to find a nice roman shade for my window seat. I debated between an off-white cotton duck roman shade or a dark brown roman shade which I found at Target. Of course, when I got home with the roman shade, it did not fit so the search is still on.




The painter had one coat of Latte on the walls when I got home and I just love it! When hubby came in, he liked it as well. This is the color he favored....gotta keep 'em happy! All the chair rail and cabinets had been primed and had a first coat of Pearl White applied. Tomorrow they will be back at 8:00 (yeah, right) to 2nd coat all the walls, all the trim they did today and start putting the molding on the cabinets. That's what I can't wait to see!






I need to change out some bulbs





Of course, this is not where my lamp will go but I wanted you to see how pretty it looks in the room. I've had the tortishell shelf for a while and I want to use it in place of my sewing base and marble top table..it may or may not stay.






The ugly old window seat got a fresh coat of Pearl White




Here you can see the primed chair railing.



How do ya'll like the way it's turned out so far? I think I'm going to be a happy camper when it's all said and done. Now if I can get my cabinet guy to get my cabinet built over the stove and I can try and get this room finished (as if there is such a thing!)

Judy,
I love it! I adore that color. What brand paint is that? We normally use Benjamin Moore.
I want to do something different in my daughters'bathroom. Right now, the walls are a BLUE and bottom half is white bead board. It has a duck theme. I was hoping to make it a brown and teal blue bathroom. That latte color might be pretty too. The play room off that bathroom is BRIGHT YELLOW, so I know it won't flow and I don't know if it needs too. Any ideas?

Oh it's going to be gorgeous! I love all your inspiration pictures in the post before this one. So soothing and elegant. Please don't get rid of that fabulous rooster tray though! that's just plain gorgeous! Can't wait to see how it all works out. Now you've got me rethinking some of the things in my kitchen! Oh well, I will have to wait at least another year or two before I do any major redecorating! I'll be checking back in soon! ~ Laurie

Hi sweet friend!

My Mom and Aunt were here for a week, but left yesterday morning, so I'm working hard to visit all of my blogging friends. It seems like forever since I've been able to visit.

Wow! You've been a busy bee! I've enjoyed taking my time and getting caught up with you. So many wonderful post.

BTW...I'm celebrating my blog's 3rd birthday! Amazing! Thanks for being such a sweet blogging friend!

Hugs!
Kat

I absolutely love your color choice as well as your inspiration photograph. We seem to have very similar taste. I would love to know the name & brand of your paint and trim choices. I am about to begin refinishing my cabinets and my colors are a taupe, white/cream, chocolate, and black. I am also adding rubbed oil handles (and hopefully some fixtures). I am looking forward to seeing the finished room.

Kathryn said...

Wow! Looks beautiful so far.

I did recently replace my kitchen cabinet hardware with new oil-rubbed bronze "bird's nest" pulls, but I just bought some oil-rubbed bronze paint to try and improve the 1980s brass doorknobs all over my house. Haven't tried it yet ... hope it works! :-)

Found your blog through Rhoda at "Southern Hospitality". I'm originally from SC and love your tagline. :-)
