New Paint in Our Kitchen (Finally!)

This post is sponsored by HomeRight.  All opinions are my own.

One of the things that’s been on my to-do list at the MCC House for at least a year is painting the kitchen.  The reason that it’s been on the list for so long is that the paint in the kitchen really isn’t that bad, so other things keep leaping over that item on my list. It’s just a little darker than I would like, and since that room is already kind of dark because of our heavy tree cover, I thought it would look better if the kitchen was painted the same color as our living and dining rooms.

When we moved in, the downstairs looked like this going from the living room and dining room into the kitchen.  The living room was (and still is) Oatlands Subtle Taupe by Valspar and the dining room was green.

It only took about a week until the dining room was also Oatlands Subtle Taupe, though!

I also hung up one of my own chandeliers; that always makes a big difference.

Here was the kitchen when we moved in; it’s still a neutral but like I said, just a bit darker than I like. Click Here to Read More
