Kitchen: Walls Painted

It dawned on me that I never posted photos of our kitchen with the walls painted. We found a great swatch and picked the lighter color (Eiffel Tower) for the walls and the darker color (Star Anise) for the ceiling. The two colors really make the white on the light canisters and window sills pop.

The entrance from the living room with the cabinets painted black and stainless steel bar pulls.


I can't tell you how much we use the counter space to the left of the stove since we've installed two additional cabinets and extended the countertop across.


The kitchen is actually not as dark as it appears in these pics.

The hanging light in the breakfast nook will be replaced with track lighting.
A view at night where Havi has found find shelter between the upturned chairs to take a nap.





There is bar on the side of the kitchen sink with an opening that looks into the lounge. We will eventually install three pendant lights in the opening area to shine down on the bar.
We are almost finished with the facelift of our kitchen. Though there is still more work to be done, I think we've come a long ways in transforming our kitchen from what it was before. You can follow us from the beginning of our project through this link.

I'm having a painting party at my house on January 2nd to paint the dining room/kitchen area. Should be interesting.

Do send photos when you are done! I'd love to see it.

Hi Daly,

Love your blog. It's the one way that I keep up with you. Sherri's baby is due at the end of this month (August). I'll keep you posted when she has it and tell you if it's a boy or a girl.

Hi Yasmin,

Thank you. I had hoped this would be a way to log my life and keep family updated so I'm glad my blog is serving its purpose.

I am excited and looking forward to hearing of Sherri's delivery.

I hope you are well and everything is okay.

Love,
Daly
