Pumpkin butter and spicy cayenne.

kitchen before, ceiling fan and allUsing some birthday money, I painted the kitchen last week! I tried my hand at texture painting with the yellow (color pumpkin butter). You just slap it on with a brush doing random strokes. It's take quite a bit of time (the coat wall alone took an hour, but it was also my first wall and after that it did get much faster) but little paint since you're not completely covering the wall. In the end I really like how it turned out. It's pretty subtle but does make a difference. The "red" wall is just smooth. (it's really an orangish-red color, depending on the light throughout the day) I still have a lot of touch-up spots to do where the tape didn't come off too well and where it just needs a little more paint to cover fully, but for the most part it's done! Now I really can't wait to get new flooring (just a nice neutral color to help tone down color from walls) , but for now that's going to have to wait. And for the pictures (as you're rotating left around the kitchen)...This view gives you a glimpse of our "new" dining room access. That's coming in the next post so stay tuned!
