Creating a Beautiful Kitchen, Part One

I want a beautiful kitchen, don't you? Luckily, I already have wonderful granite countertops, glazed alder cabinets, and brand new stainless steel appliances. A great starting point, I think.

But. It's not mine. I didn't really make any of those decisions. I am going to make it mine, and I am starting a new mini-series for Tuesdays to chronicle my process of making a gorgeous kitchen where I love to spend my time.

Step One: Paint

I finally decided on a color for my kitchen wall: Moss Green.
I have already tested the color on the wall and purchased the gallon of paint. So this week's project will be to paint the walls. Next Tuesday, I will post photos of the paint job.

Other things I will be doing in the kitchen:
  • Figuring out some kind of decor for above the cabinets
  • Getting my linens coordinated/pared down
  • Finding some new wall decor
  • Organizing the counter tops
  • Finding a new dining table/chairs or (most likely) redoing the current ones

Love that color for a kitchen. My last kitchen was in a green just a tad brighter than that. My husband called it 'John-Deer green.' But it was beautiful and bright.

I just wanted to let you know that I added a button for your blog on my blog. I wanted to use yours, but I want all of mine to be 125x125 pixels instead of the rectangle you have, so I just took the 'A' from your new banner and made it a button. If you would like to configure a square button for me to use instead, just let me know!
