New color for the kitchen



Actually the paint that I decided on was a dark taupe. After I completed the paint job...my family thought it was very drab so off I went to lowes to find a color for an accent wall. I decided on Barn door red...which when placed on the wall looked like pink lipstick so back to Lowes to have them darken it to cranberry. It is a nice color but not the actual color that I was going for. Everyone seems happier but I haven't decided if I will go and get yet another color mixed and repaint that wall or just leave it for now. I tryed to show you a picture so you could see both colors together...and then one with just the cranberry wall. I have not started to decorate the kitchen yet until I decide about the wall color. I found a beautiful rug but I would need to make the color a little more red if I go with it. Oh, just too many decisions.
This week I would like to finish the kitchen one way or the other and then maybe spruce up the back porch a little before it gets too cold. I have to mow the front yard, a few appointments, lessons with the girls and just the normal stuff too...
The weather has been so beautiful that I almost don't want to be working inside but I have much to do before Thanksgiving and the only way to do it is to stay on task each day...so for now I have to work on the kitchen and make those decisions about paint color and new rugs....hope you have a wonderful Sunday. Until then, be blessed.
