Our Kitchen Transformation Thus Far...


The ugly "before" tile

The new wall color with a primer on the tile (the sections of paint on the cabinets are just testers that we are not going with. Jon really wants dark dark blue lower cabinets and then cream uppers)

The shade of gray we chose for the tile. I am still not sure about it, as it seems a little dark, but I think it's just that the cabinets look hideous with it. Next step: paint random tiles fire engine red, green (like on the little cart in the above picture), yellow (same color as the walls), and dark blue. Oh, and paint the cabinets! Then get a new faucet and face-lift complete for a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen. Hopefully it'll inspire me to cook and do dishes without a blindfold on!

Elisabeth I really like it so far. I can't wait to see it all finished. I like the dark gray tile and I am excited to see it with the random color painted on some of them. Do you have to use a special paint for them?

Thanks for posting these photos. Your plans sound amazing, so keep the photos coming. I too have big expectations when I paint that I will be inspired to do what I need to in that particular room - and colour does help! :)
