Ombre Eterges

I love the word and the look of ombre. It rhythms with hombre. So cool. hahahahaha

I have a metal eterges that is so ugly but very useful in my kitchen. On a whim the other day I spray painted it pink. Big improvement but about 5 minutes after I was finished I realized it was a perfect candidate for an ombre finish.

On the first day it wasn’t pouring rain I hauled it outside and went to town getting my ombre on. It was fun though I always feel sorry for all the bugs that get stuck in the paint.

As I was finishing I began having second thoughts. It was looking a little darling and nursery appropriate. I think that once all the booze got involved it grew right up, though…..right?

Maybe she will mix you a drink.

My Kitchen: After!

White!  My kitchen is now white. I have never painted a room white until now. One can hardly tell a difference from the before and after. But, I promise, there is. I’ll give you a little tour.

The view from the living room into the kitchen. I took that wall down the first time my husband left me home alone.

best kitchen tool ever

It cuts the cutest spiral vegetables and is easy to clean.

My kitchen is very small. I removed all the upper cabinets immediately and replaced them with open shelving. I have changed the style of shelving several times. I love this glass over the window so much. It lends itself to a feeling of spaciousness.

My first white room. It was easier than I thought….to go white. I still hate painting, though.

My Kitchen Project

My husband is going to be gone today and so I am going to paint my kitchen (he hates the smell of paint).  I love the color that is there now but I recently painted my livingroom and the colors kind of clash.

I have a confession. I paint my walls  A LOT.  Which is funny because I hate painting. Someday I think it would be fun to do a slide show of all the colors my house has worn.

Here is my “before” shot:

Try to guess the new color!
