Yet, despite the pain I am excited about my bright new kitchen. The kitchen before was pretty but just so dark (black appliances, dark oak stain, black granite counter tops, dark slate back splash, black drawer pulls and deep burnt orange walls). Since I NEED light, I just had to do something. So, out came the cream. I just cannot decide on the knob and pull colors -- I am thinking either crystal or a more modern stainless steel. I will have to post picture when I finish.
Oh, I did get some pix of the kids helping -- they are GREAT helpers and we only ruined 2 winter coats and a pair of jeans in the process before I got smart and stripped then down to their undies.
