It's learning to look past life's imperfections

I think We took “Go Green” A Little To Far…..

My kitchen has been cream forever. 

As in cream walls, cream ceiling..blech cream/  I’ve been wanting/needing to repaint & update in here for ages.  Other things were priorities & with all the wood trim, neither of us wanted to mess with it.  Scrubbing the walls last month I realized I was taking paint so, it needed to be done. I wanted COLOR this time

We chose “Herb Cornucopia” (Valspar) I’d hook up the link but its nothing like the actual color on their site. Kitchen 006On the color card  it was a soft herbal green…On my walls it’s



Kitchen 004

All the drop cloths were still at Erika’s, so we used newspaper

It looks like a print shop blew up…a green oneKitchen 005 The color changes depending on where you are in the room.

I think I like it…once the trim is back up that will break up the green & white.  Maybe new curtain’s will help.  I think I want an herb print.  I can visualize it I just have to find the curtain’s or fabric to make them.. but then I wanted  green walls!


  1. Ooo I really like it! Very nice

  2. Thanks Evelyn, its growing on me. I do have a large kitchen but, the green makes it look HUGE!

  3. I love the color. But then again I am partial to green!

  4. I like it a lot. My colors in my kitchen are cream and white on top and TURQUOISE on the bottom, so your green is baby steps to me! It will make you happy once you get the trim up and the room back in order. The first morning you walk in there after that is done, you will SMILE!!

  5. It looks really good.

  6. I think it looks great, but then I love COLOR! (Says the woman who has a pale yellow kitchen that has faded almost to cream and really should have been repainted a couple of years ago.)

  7. I must say, you did get a green!!!!
    It will look so fresh and clean when you get all done. I think it will look especially good with the dark wood too.

  8. Love the colour and it looks so fresh


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
