Kitchenette finished

              These are the finished pictures of the kitchenette that I promised.

I decided not to paint or alter the table. There was not a color that I thought would look Fabulous. Plus to much painted furniture in a room is overwhelming. The eye needs a place to rest.

The amazingly bright windows look out into my back yard where I have a bird feeder that I love to watch, especially during the warmer months. I also have a deck right off of the kitchen that we spend a lot of spring and summer afternoons on. I have come to truly love this home but now it is time to go back home to Texas.

I just love the details on this chair back.
 I wanted a paint color that would not hide them. 

Along with the table and chairs being finished we also put in new counter tops, resurfaced (painted) the cabinets, walls and trim work, and took down some old faux brick wall paper.

In working on the house we knew that most of the money would go into completely finishing the basement. So we had to be frugal in other choices that we made. There is nothing structurally wrong with the cabinets so I could not justify replacing them. So, I painted the cabinets instead of replacing them and used a Home Depot kit to do the job (the first time). I loved the look that this gave to the cabinets and kitchen as a whole, but it was too kitchy; it would only really appeal to one group of people and others would groan at having to paint before, or even at a later date. Or even worse they would take a PASS. So I had to re-paint, and this time I chose  Behr.

The colors for the kitchen are:

Wall color- Lowes  Cream in my Coffee
Trim color- Behr premium plus Ultra- Paint and Primer in One (Frozen Pond). I tried to paint something in every room this color. I just kept gravitating to it.
