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.
the before shot
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.
5 shades of pink

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?
all ready to fill up
the wild cat likes the ombre
Maybe she will mix you a drink.
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.
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 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!
