Deeply In Love I Am....
With my cabinets that is!
It has been a long journey with these guys.
Do you remember after I painted them Bedford Gray my walls turned green?
See below. Ouch!
Now.... Better..much better. You think?
I really love my Comfort Gray walls.
It is one of the sweetest shades of blue ever but against the Bedford cabinets they screamed green!
So to fool the eye...
A little paint trickery....I did!
I painted only the walls that touched the cabinets.
I went a shade or two lighter than the Bedford.
Heavy Goose. Love it!
Can you see below?
It gives the look of a shadow effect.

I didn't tell a soul.
I wanted to see if my plan worked.
The sweet blue that I love so is still here.
The gray cabinets look so much better now.....Whewww~
A few family members shared their concern that our kitchen would look drab.
Not at all....at least that's my take on it. :)
I find that it allows me the perfect backdrop for my signs too!
I'm not sure if I want to add do-dads back up there just yet.
I'm enjoying that clean crisp feel for now.
Here's another shot of the two rooms together.
It is hard to see the blue in this shot but trust me it's still there....pretty as ever :)
So next time you are faced with a little paint whoops.
Fooling the eye is so easy to do...
Works like a charm!
I'm off to take a little nap now.
My Dad is returning from a month long trip to Peru.
His flight lands at midnight (thanks dad)!
Look's like my sister and I get to take a little trip to the
to pick him up...
Oh the fun :)
