Second chances and only 2 more coats
I thought I should probably include an after photo of what the buffet looks like after I painted it the not so pretty yellow.
Ahhhh, so much better. I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m slightly impulsive, and so I took on painting the dresser and the two walls that surround our kitchen on a whim.
I saw that pretty gray/blue/green color on Pinterest and decided I had to use it somewhere. It’s Sherwin William’s Sea Salt, in case you were wondering, and I LOVE it.
I wasn’t sure how painting a portion of the room would look, since our kitchen/dining/living is all connected and the ceiling is vaulted, but I thought I would risk it. (It was all that warm wheat color you can see higher on the wall, which is Pratt and Lambert’s Toasted Wheat).
So I guess I took two risks.
And I think they both paid off.
Now my kitchen is even lighter and brighter, and maybe even a little quirky with the blue walls peeking at you from the sea of neutral wheat.
I like a little bit of quirk and the unexpected in my life; it keeps things interesting.
And it didn’t hurt, that my sweet friend Jenae stopped by with these gorgeous Peonies.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Peonies, hence the blog title.
Flowers make every space alive and beautiful.
I stop to smell them and admire their delicate frilliness at least 50 times a day.
Do you have a project that was heading south but recovered nicely?
