One thing leads to another....


I painted with Martha this weekend!

I had to laugh when I purchased her paint though...

even her paint cans are pretty!

It almost reminded me of a box of chocolates... almost....ha!


OK~

So here is what I have so far.

I am really loving the look of the gray beside my stainless.

SHARP!  I tell ya~

but...

Then you throw in the color of my walls...

and it's another story.

I know!


My pretty blue walls turned green.

I was not a bit surprised though.

I am going to try a little paint trickery...

yes I am!
(more on that to come)

See how pretty the gray is!

but...

Can you see another problem?

Look to the right of the photo below.

My cream trim and lower wall

turned to butter.

Oh yes it did!

Hmmmm.


See?

So.

Here is what I'm gonna do.

Paint.

Are ya'll tired yet?

I know I am.

One thing I have learned about painting.

One Thing Always Leads To Another...ha!

ps... did I mention that I have the best husband in the world?
well...I do.

Later Gators...I have me some paintin' to do :)

  2. Love that gray..and boy do I know how one thing leads to another. I had fabric to make a quilt for several years. Finally finished the quilt with shams, throw pillows the whole nine yards, recently. Of course I had to paint the bedroom walls, and new drapes of course. Well, I finished this week and wouldn't you know, even though I planned so well, the walls and drapes do nothing for the quilt.......So what's a girl to do??? Make another quilt I'd say.

  4. I love the gray! You are so right about one thing leading to another! I painted the bricks white on my hearth and then needed to paint the mantle. Right now, it is 5 different colors and I can't get it quite right. Why do we start these things???

  13. Oh Susie, sounds like the domino effect is happening. They gray looks beautiful on the cabinets. Wondering what your paint trickery is you will do to make the blue not look green.

  21. The gray looks great Susie!
    That's the wonderful thing about paint... You can change the look of a whole room for a decent price!

    Keep on keeping on!

  22. Question: I have painted cupboards...how do you keep the paint from getting scratched off? or are you constantly touching them up, too?

  23. The gray looks scrumptious. I have August Fields kitchen dancing thoughts in my head of our next home.....I did not know I could love a kitchen of gray more than white.....I LOVE IT!

    Cheers~

  25. I so bad want to paint my kitchen cabinets... even though the house is only a year and a half old (is that bad??) I think I have a sickness. And this post made me jealous... I love how they turned out!!

  26. Oh Susie I feel your pain!!!!! I just painted my lower cabinets are grey/green and had to paint my cream top ones white as well as my yellow walls and cream trim!!! I wanted to anyway, but I really saw how much different colors change other colors in the room!!! I think I have to paint my cream hutch now too!!! One thing DOES lead to another when you paint!!!!

    I love you cabinets by the way, they turned out beautiful!!!

  27. I think my husband is the best husband. Less than a month after painting at least 10 samples of colors on my bedroom wall, we settled on BM Bennington Gray and painted the whole room. I really liked it but had wanted a greenish bluish color but couldn't find the right one. After reading your post on finding the perfect blue, I thought Gray Wisp might be what I was looking for. It is and we're repainting this weekend!

  28. LOVE that shade of gray, good choice! I have no doubt you'll work your magic and pull it all together.

  34. LOVE the cabinets!!! I know what you mean about one thing leading to another. I'm painting my kitchen and game room right now- which has led to me realizing that the doors and trim now look drab and that I no longer like the color in the connecting room and so on and on it goes!! ;) Thank goodness i've got a great hubby too!
