I wasn't planning on painting my kitchen doors pink, it just happened. My goal was to get the kitchen white so I could start from scratch and brighten it up. The door to the left is to the pantry. Yes, we actually have a little room for a pantry! Living in an old caretaker's cottage means lots of interesting nooks and crannies that have been turned into useful spaces. The door on the right goes into the living room. The paint is Valspar Pink Flutter from Lowes.
Always good to show as ugly of a "before picture" as possible. The walls were creamy/yellowish/something.
And the table got a coat of paint as well. I haven't gotten to the benches yet, most likely because we eventually want chairs. White benches and kids don't really go together so well. The fabric for the blind is different to what I'd normally choose, with its gray background but I really like it. I have a yard of it draped over the window, just to test drive it. Husband really likes it but more on that another day.
Everyone is gravitating to the brighter space. It looks so much bigger than it did. The cabinets are still a darkish wood which will have to wait a month or two to be changed. Here, I prime the table as Mark primes the walls.
This is a good representation of the original kitchen color, without touchups. The yellow-y wasn't pretty.It wasn't cream, wasn't yellow, nor linen, nor even beige. I didn't know what it was and it didn't, either! With minimal light coming in, save for late afternoon, all I knew was that I wanted it gone and now it is. Of course, the harsh overhead lighting doesn't help, but one thing at a time.
