Months ago Gregg and I decided that we really missed our old apartment's apple green kitchen. Our accessories went so well with it and it was such a nice, crisp color. Well, we made the change last week. I started on Wednesday at noon and finished last night at 8 p.m. Spending 5-7 hours a day painting was actually way more enjoyable then I had imagined. I dreaded getting started but once I had everything laid out on the table there was no stoppin' me! I realized quickly that it would be completely impossible for me to paint anything without blasting 80's music. (Told ya I was on a bender... you think I was kidding??) The backache and quad soreness went away before noon everyday and so I started up again by 1 o'clock. One coat of primer and about three coats of paint took our Orange Inferno to Japanese Fern. We are thrilled with the outcome. It's so hard to choose the color that you have in your head when staring at 40 shades in that family. At the paint counter in Home Depot we were settled on a color and all of a sudden I ran back to the swatches and picked another - thankfully I did because it looks great. While we loved our old orange dining room - we welcome the green phase.
I am sure a lot of people will enjoy the "old" better as the "new" may be too vibrant. But we love it!
Next week I will green up the kitchen!!
