Well its been four months now since Gary and I moved to our new little Cottage (Cottage 12). We have painted every room now except the laundry room, that's still white. I left all the doors white, but every time I went into the kitchen I felt something was not quite right, (you know that feeling) well anyway it dawned on me I needed to add some color to the doors!! so off I went to the paint store, but first I knew I wanted green I had the perfect shade of green in my yarn stash. I took the yarn with me to (Lowe's) but they could not match it with just the yarn, so I had to pick out a color swatch. Thank goodness Gary was with me, since he has the eye for color.
Gary chose (Painted Basket SR812)Valspar signature color. It was the perfect match to my yarn.
So here is the BEFORE kitchen and NOW.........
The Green Door!
I also added the metal basket with some flowers to the door. I think it really brightens up the kitchen.
The entry was in need of more color too. The inspiration was the green glass vase that Gary and I have had for 25 years.
Sorry for poor photo it was the only one I could find to show you the entry door BEFORE.
And NOW........Moocho Better.....I think! O ya I have a confession to make I spilt the paint, yes I did all over the tile. I screamed for you know who(((((GARY))))) come help me. He came running, I think he thought I was hurt (sorry honey). He brought me rags and I wiped up the huge spill!!. Gary had to scrap the grout for me to get all the green paint out. I must have the cleanest floor now in town. Scrub, Scrub and Scubaing some more....
Now I have a question for you all, I need your advise~Does the entry look to crowded with the plant by the window?. Our girls were over visiting and they said "Mom I think you have to much in the entry and you should move the plant"... So do you agree with the girls...should I move the plant?
Sometimes I tend to me a clutter bug! yep I am a cutter bug, that's just me......LOL

Enjoy your day and God Bless
