Kitchen & Family Room Wall Paint

Coming your way today to share the new wall colors we painted the Kitchen and Family room.  But first here’s a quick update on yesterdays post, my Sunday list.  Seven out of 9 complete, not bad plus I did some crafting which I’ll share sometime this week.

Back to the Kitchen and Family room.  After we painted the wall behind the fireplace we knew we had to paint the rest of the walls.  After living with 5 or 6 colors on the walls for several weeks we came to a decision. We used Home Depot Behr paint with primer.  I’m a big fan. 

We decided to paint the wall behind the stove Tea Time and the rest of the walls a lighter color.  It was originally a Glidden color I think called Whispering Wheat.  I had my Home Depot  guys match the color and appropriately named it myself, Vanilla Latte.

Here’s Tea Time on the one accent wall in the kitchen. (Excuse the bit of glare please)I had to include a pic of this cute plate I picked up at TJ Max for $5.00.

Here are some camera shots of Vanilla Latte which is the color of the remaining Kitchen and the Family room walls.   I’m quite happy with our choices.

I also wanted to do something with the light switch covers so I covered them with contact paper and I totally like it.  I could see myself going on a contact paper craze!

Spare Room Project – Paint

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  Our Northwest weather definitely turned this past couple days.  We saw the first rain for awhile and the wind is causing many leaves to fall from the trees.  Yesterday was the perfect weekend day to stay inside and paint the guest/craft/my room/etc.

After much thought I decided to go with something bright, Behr’s Chilled Lemonade.  Yep, I’ll have sunshine even on a grey day! Here’s the paint chip.

And here’s what it actually looks like.  I was worried it would be on the light side so I had them add 25 percent more color. I also, first time, purchased paint with the primer already built in.  It really went on the walls well.

No more boring walls!

I didn’t finish until last night so I’ll do a quick check for touch-ups tonight after work and then start putting the room back together.  Lot’s more projects to finish.
