A Little Paint in the Kitchen




This was our idea of a "quickie" project that has dragged on way too long. The chipping layers of old paint made for a lot of prep work, and we didn't even do that great of a job. We decided to paint the kitchen cabinets green and yellow to match the old tile. The walls ended up orange just to brighten things up a bit. A few of the many doors still need paint. New drawer pulls, a schoolhouse style lighting fixture, and a brighter bulb have helped to cheer things up considerably. We still plan on painting the plywood floor, and I'll sew a little curtain to hide that trash area under the sink. Also, we bought some old citrus crate labels...those are out being framed. So the quickie kitchen project continues on. More work should get done over spring break.

Nice colors. Our kitchen had, I think, the same yellow tile, but without any other color to break it up. Somewhere along the way, it was painted white. I've thought about stripping it, but what would one do with a kitchen like that in solid yellow?
