Kitchen Paint Help Needed

So…I will be painting my new kitchen when we move in. Right now it’s a dark hunter green.

Here are some early pictures I took when we were looking at the house back in June.

Thought I’d throw in the bathroom…even though it’s not a great picture. But just to let you know…I’m not keeping the BLACK paint. Ick.

I was waffling between yellows, greens, and blues for the paint. Now I’ve narrowed it down to FOUR paint strips…but not sure which intensity of each color. Oh, and by the way, we’re going with Kelly Moore paint as we have a discount there.

The cabinets will stay cream white.



The first is Seaside Accents (KM3219-1) and the lighter Iced Teal (KM3218-1)

Camping with 8 year old girls!

My mom and sister are either very brave or not right in the head…still debating that one. They took on a lot of 8 year old girls (6 of them stayed and camped overnight) for my niece’s birthday party on Saturday at Davis Creek Park out in Washoe Valley.

When I got there we started making walking sticks out of 5/8″ wooden dowels. We wrapped hemp rope around the area where we would hold the stick and then painted, beaded, and added feathers. It lasted about 2 hours. Then was cupcake decorating and opening presents. I only have pictures of the crafting part…had to get back home before the rest of the party was over.
