Blue Kitchen {Let the transformation begin!}

Mar 13th, 2013

Back in 2009 I painted our kitchen ORANGE! I even painted the decorative designs with the help of an overhead projector. It was a fun part of our home for over 3 years, but I am really excited for change and an update! Sometimes when I tell people what I’m doing in my house they look at me like I have three eyes. But, too bad! I need to love my home, right?!?! YES!! I have always needed change often, even before I had All Things Thrifty! It might drive my husband crazy sometimes, but he’s getting used to it! We’ve been married for 11 years, so he better be by now!

So, let’s get right to the transformation! Our kitchen looked like this when we moved in: I call it our BLANK SLATE!

I am in love. We painted it with Sherwin Williams Emerald paint in Raindrop. It only took 1 coat in most places. I was very impressed. We did two coats of paint though.

It is the perfect farmhouse fresh feel that I was going for! Blue-kitchen-sherwin-williams-raindrop
The mirror is from HomeGoods, and the curtains are from IKEA.

We built the light fixture for above the table, and we will be posting that tutorial soon, and I bought the fun green knobs for our aprons at Tai Pan, a local home décor store.

Every time I walk into the kitchen it makes me happy. I hope you like it too!
