This, obviously, is my newly painted kitchen! I got so tired of the "institutional "color and decided to grit my teeth and grab a paintbrush. The good news is that it only took one coat of paint! The better news is that my neighbor is a painter and gave me Sherwin Williams paint for FREE!!! As for the painting, I had to do a little improvisation since I do not have a ladder. Here are a few tips you might need to know if you ever decide to stand on your fridge to paint:-) :
1. When getting down from the top of the fridge, do not place your hand on the freezer door; it flies open! Oops!
2. Your fridge can hold 150 lbs of body weight without caving or denting.
3. Do not use a swivel stool to get up and down from the fridge. It swivels under your weight! (How's that for logic?!)
I also had an interesting time standing on top of my piano bench which was on top of the dining room table. I tried to get all of that painted before Troy came home and stopped me from putting my bones in such jeopardy. It was worth it though! How do you think it looks? Can you believe I actually went neutral?! Deep down I really wanted red. I am being very good and not allowing myself to decorate until the white trim is painted. Hence the bland looking kitchen.
