Blue Kitchens and a Royal Wedding

We went with blue/gray.... it is amazing how the colors on a paint sample look so different on a wall.  The green just wasn't doing it for our space.  There was no doubt as soon as the first stroke went up on the wall that we would use Sensible Hue-- Sherwin Williams.

Sooooo we are painting the kitchen  on Monday.   I wanted to share a couple of kitchens that I have found on the net for you to ponder before the big reveal.

I have yet to decide what color the table and chairs will be... that red  is pretty snappy.  However, I am loving the turquoise in the third photo.

If you don't subscribe to Country Living I suggest that you do...

In other news there was a royal wedding yesterday...   William and Kate...   I just finished watching it on DVR a few minutes ago. Was it normal to cry? LoL

Do you think their backs hurt from standing/sitting so straight all of the time?  Geez.

I wonder what color their kitchen is...

Chad and I snuck into Lowes on Sunday after church and started to look at tile... bad idea.

 We told suckered ourselves into thinking that we could do it ourselves- nothin' to it.  We have only watched 6 million do it yourself shows on HGTV, we have to know all the steps and then some.  Looking at the magazines and displays at Lowes we talked ourselves out of the glass tile that we thought we liked and went with the 10 cent a piece plain ole' white ones.

$150 later we owned an inexpensive tile saw, grout, grouting tools, caulk, tiles, sealer, and a grout mixer attachment for the screwdriver. 

3 days later we had a very cool backsplash.


Painters come on Monday. Exciting!!!
