A little dab of paint here and a dab there.

Here's a look into my current project. I have never liked this dark red in my kitchen. It sucks all of the light out of the room. The color makes feel like I'm in a cave.  I have just started painting a few days ago.  I have to say that I don't like to paint anymore, but it is something I can do to save some money on our projects.   

I'm already liking it much better.  It takes a lot of paint to cover up all of this red.  I mean a lot...

I can live with good old dependable beige and punch it up with my accessories.

This is the view into my wash room and the back door entrance. I have a decorated shelf over my washer and dryer.  I used some of my grandmother's things that belonged to her.  Like her old iron and her cannister set.  More about that when I finish. 
I have made a huge mess in my kitchen. This drives me crazy.

In the mean time, I am trying to get this painted before we have the new flooring installed.  I'm  also having the cabinet doors re-faced with new doors and trim. 

 Then the counters are next on my list.  I am going to be busy for a long time. 

Tomorrow my sister moves to her new home and closer to her son and DIL.  I am going to help her organize her kitchen once she is settled.

Nice! I've always preferred neutral walls. It's much easier and way less expensive to change things up when you don't have to paint all the time when you get sick of a color scheme.

Yellow. that is the basic color of my kitchen and laundry room and I have recently decided I can't stand it in either much your post is inspiring (cuz I am procrastinating cuz I don't like painting like I use to;))

I like neutral colors in the kitchen, too. I hope you make a promise to yourself to finish your kitchen first, if you know what I mean. ;-)
