Svelte Sage…So Far So Good!

I started painting our kitchen and am so excited to show you how it looks so far!  Here is a “before” picture of that same wall.  Our kitchen used to be painted in “Cottage White”  I like the color but felt like I needed more color.   Lately, I’ve been gravitating towards shades of green. 

Cottage White

I am very happy at how this color is turning out!  Looks like I have a lot of touching up  to do!  I see green on the white trim! Eeek!

I’m not finished yet but I couldn’t wait to show my progress to you all!

Your svelte sage looks as good as my svelte sage! Great minds think alike, woo hoo! Love how the color looks against your white cabinets. I wish I had white cabinets *sigh*

Oh I love your green! I'm so wanting to paint my kitchen and dining room that color -- but first, I've got to take down the wallpaper! ugh! I'm sooooo not looking forward to that project.

OOOH, Sandra! Your walls look so fab! I love green too. It's really a warm neutral color, don't you think? You can put almost any color with it. Your transferware will look so good with it!
I started painting my kitchen in October...not finished! :)
Be a sweetie,
