J and I had a productive Christmas Eve. Since the moment I woke up we were busy. Firstly we cleaned the kitchen, dusting and moving the fridge and hoosier cabinet to the center of the room to prep for painting.
As you can see, we started with white white white walls. And the previous owners of our house were over zealous when it came to hanging things so we had a lot of holes to fill. The previous owners also didn’t adhere to painting protocol. For instance they used a flat paint in the kitchen that didn’t allow you to clean it without your cleaning tool coming away covered in white paint residue. This last photo has the 3 test samples that J painted. We didn’t end up using any of these. I thought the light one was too light and the other two were too dark. Apparently, I’m picky when it comes to paint =)
After prepping the kitchen, J and I went out to breakfast, nom nom nom. Then went to pick up paint and paint supplies, we then went to a hobby store to pick up a frame, then to the grocery store to gather things for dinner, and finally back home to tackle painting.
I think it turned out really well, and couldn’t be happier. Now, J has the painting bug and wants to spend today and tomorrow painting our living room. I’m mulling it over, but I don’t think it’s too promising, as yesterday I was passed out promptly at about 8:30 from my day of none stop moving.
