This is my kitchen when we moved in here in September 2003. I knew when I bought this house that my kitchen was going to be the heart of my house, but that it was going to take a lot of work to get it where I wanted.
In 2010 I painted my cabinets again (I had painted them a colonial blue) this country white. I liked it well enough but to be honest, it was a pain to keep clean, especially around the knobs. Hand prints were always showing up on the doors.
So a few years ago I painted my hutch this brick red (it's actual name is paprika) and I loved it a lot. I had gone from white to red and felt it really fit in well with my decor.
So I decided that I would paint my cabinets the same red. I really love the way it came out. And we replaced the ceiling fixture as well and I love that so much more than the other brass one. It had a paint treatment to make the brass look like a green/blue patina. It was a gorgeous light, just not primitive enough looking for me.
So now it is done. (I only wish I could remove that ugly linoleum floor, but that is just not a project I want to tackle) And I really couldn't be happier with the results.
Have a great day!
