Memorial Day was a doozy.
We've gone from Tan to primed white to green, to darker green, to Miami Orange, to mellow orange, to our final product. Ugh!
Here's the best photo I could find of a blank canvas for the color. Pre-backsplash and pre-gas stove and matching microwave.
Of course, me being me, I immediately said, "Purple?!" (although to be fair I think I had a little reason to think that was far-fetched). He stuck with it and we went and bought little paint samples to test it out.
We started with T painting the ceiling. It was looking pretty dingy, and when we put up the new paint, it made it almost look gray up there. Oops. Then we tried out the three colors to see if it would work. Elephant Skin would go around the main band along the ceiling, Burnished Clay would go on the main wall with the french doors, and Darkest Grape would be our accent coloring behind the refrigerator and in the nook leading down the main hallway.
Next, Terry trimmed in the Burnished Clay over the dreadful Orange.
And, yes, our kitchen has purple......and it rocks!
