On Saturday we tackled painting the kitchen. We've been slow to get motivated in this space because there is so much we want to do, and it's painful to spend time on it the way it is. We really would like to just gut it and start over, and certainly get rid of these cabinets, but that process is both expensive and daunting because we don't really know exactly what we want to do yet. Paul's parents were kind enough to babysit and even help with painting! We got all of this done in one day. Next up - painting the kitchen cabinets. We can't decide whether to go with bold black or more of a lighter color. I don't think I would like the lighter color (like off-white) mostly because of how it would look with the currently black appliances, AND now that I look at these pictures, I really don't think I'd like off-white next to the bright white trim color. The laundry room door obviously needs to be painted now. All the trim used to be the same color as the laundry room door.
