The Kitchen Repainted

I painted the kitchen a long time ago, but never posted anything. It’s not terribly exciting, but makes me happier than the light green that was there before. The before picture of the light green-ish paint is below.

I wanted to paint some sort of COLOR in the kitchen, since a lot of other things are fairly neutral. I ended up getting a sample of the Behr paint Bayside to try out and liked it enough to buy some to paint.

Overall I do like it better than the green (which was also painted on the laundry room door seen below), but I don’t think it’s quite right for the long term. Long term we’d probably do some kitchen remodel. Probably paint or reface the cabinets, new countertop, redo the floor since some of the parquet got a bit water damaged from the beer fridge in the kitchen nook. We don’t be looking at renovating for a while though, because the kitchen is perfectly usable and we’re fairly happy with it right now.

I think the Bayside color does look good with the grey in the dining room, and flows fairly well. It was really tough figuring out a color that would go with the warm wood color of the kitchen, and I think I did an alright job in injecting some fun, and getting rid of the light green paint I didn’t like.
