Here it is after the ceiling was painted white. Notice the boring light that my electrician thinks is perfectly good.
Here it is getting a coat of primer. The walls will eventually be white. I figured it would be light, bright and a better backdrop for the turquoise light fixture and the rest of the colorful things I plan to put into the room. This will be my sewing/craft room.
Look at it now. Ooh. Aah.
Here is a photo looking the other direction. Notice something?
Here's a clue.
That's right! There is a dishwasher and a sink! No faucet...or drains...or garbage disposal yet, but there may be by the time I get there today.
Someday I will replace the cabinets with pretty white shaker ones, but right now the budget doesn't allow for it. I think these cabinets date to the 1950s. They are pretty beat up and don't hang straight on their hinges, but with some sanding and a couple coats of white paint they will be livable for awhile. I removed that fugly tile from the counter tops. I still need to remove it from the backsplash.
The kitchen walls will be painted a light green from Benjamin Moore's historical colors collection. I think it will look nice with the white cabinets, green light fixtures, and eventually with the terrazzo counter tops I plan to install. The color of the terrazzo is called fresh lime and it's from Daltile.
|So pretty together. Me likey.|
I've chosen a light dove grey for the hall bath with the claw foot tub. It looks kind of blue in this picture, but there are no blue undertones in the actual color.
