I'm so in love with the new kitchen color.
It reminds me of the color of an antique Ball jar.
Initially the family said it was too bright. They just weren't used to color on the walls. It's not too bright. It's toned down from the blue that was in here before.
It isn't a neutral but it feels like one.
I've collected some pretty stuff over the years and spring is the perfect time to show it off.
I picked up this antique toy sewing machine at one of our local antique stores.
My mom made the little cross stitch for me when I was a child.
She made a matching one for my cousin, who is a year and a half younger than I am.
My little Art Deco clock came from the same antique shop as the sewing machine.
It doesn't matter that it doesn't work. The finish is perfectly patinated.
We used to have the best antique stores around here but many of them didn't survive the recession.
I wanted an aqua ice cream bucket and couldn't find one so I fiddled around with some paint we had in the garage.
Then I found this one at one of our remaining antique shops.
This color is such a fun one for spring and we are loving it in the kitchen. I'm patiently waiting for the granite to be picked up by the fabricator. I can't wait to see it all put together. I'll let you know when the granite guy comes to make the template.
I'm headed to pick out a new faucet tomorrow.
