(Lies on day #9 Mon Cher did the first kitchen wall but I wasn't there, due to work, so no pictures to prove it happened.)
On the 10th day of improvements everything looked refreshed and I know it's going to be cozy.
We started the cabinet project. Since we are painting the walls of the kitchen we took some cabinets out, and because they were outside we started working on their tops.
We bought this paint, because the top was laminated, and I hated the fake marbled design it had.
See the ugly?
This color was a hit. If everything in my mind comes alive this kitchen will be purrfect.
We also finished the beloved chalk wall for the kitchen. This is the wall that divides the kitchen from the living room, and since it's small but tall I knew it was the perfect place to put chalkboard paint.
As you can see I photoshopped examples of chalk on it. We went for a charcoal gray instead of black and I love it.
Sadly I can't start writing on it until tomorrow, so it will properly dry.
Next on the agenda was covering the opposite wall of the kitchen with the same color for the dinning room.
This is the plan, the DR is right across from the kitchen so it will function as an extension, we are currently working on a DIY kitchen island that will be in the DR. We bought wheels for the island, but it's stationary place will be there. With this in mind both places will have the same color patterns and wall painting.
We are in love with that color.
Next you'll see what happened on day #11 and I will do a whole post dedicated to the process of the DIY kitchen island.
