|Our Kitchen: BEFORE|
|It is difficult to see, but there is wall-|
paper up on all the walls.
I began with the stripping of wallpaper.
The 80s gave us Madonna, shoulder pads, mullets... and wallpaper. Suffice to say, not everything done in the 80s was a good idea. With the help of a friend I got the kitchen stripped down to its plaster walls. Picking a paint color wasn't much of a task for me. I knew I wanted green, but what shade? My mom painted an incredible watercolor that I envisioned hanging in my dining room, which is connected to the kitchen, so I went with a shade that would compliment that. The color is called "Herb Tea", but c'mon, we all know it's just a vamped up version of that wonderful 70's classic "Avacado".
|Here's a photo of the watercolor my mom did... the inspiration|
for my paint color.
|This is a poor representation of the|
actually color we used...oh well.
|Here's a better shot showing the wall color. This is Sam. |
Sam can do anything.
|Ahhh, so pretty.|
