Painting Cabinets….

Pinterest is my friend and foe with this house remodel. Post-Pregnancy brain probably isn’t helping, either. We are looking for a paint color (this is ongoing since ever inch of our current beige, peach, tan, yellow colored house needs to be painted).

We love the idea of white upper cabinets with cool knobs. Done. Easy.

The bottom cabinets are causing lots of Home Depot and paint sample runs. So far we have sampled 6 colors.

Our goal is a contemporary kitchen. Not southwestern. We wanted blue, but that felt it was looking too Santa Fe…so I think we have settled on more of a gray…we will see…

We have the knobs purchased (on sale from Anthro):

Progress post to come soon…painting cabinets is no joke!

Making Mercer Home

We bought our second home this past summer. It feels like a huge deal. We moved to a completely new part of town and have more square footage. The house is current beige. Very very very beige. We aren’t really beige kind of people. So needless to say the entire home has to be covered in paint. Inside and out. The tasks at hand are exciting and daunting. This entire house is BEIGE. I. Hate. Beige.

Why is picking out paint colors so hard? We have a pretty good idea of our vision. We like whites, grays and blues for home paint colors. Our old house was mostly whites, grays and greens aside from my mustard yellow (AKA amazing) bathroom. So you can see we are really breaking the boundaries moving from green to blue.

Here is a current gallery of what we are working with….Just for benchmarking purpose. Please note ALL furniture found in these images belongs to old ass people who owned the house prior to us. We don’t like them. There is legit reasons for us not liking them I will share another day….

Get ready for some transformation. We love it!!!
