Well I'm in deep weeds. I decided to try and redo my outdated kitchens wall paper. Stripping it was necessary because there was more than one layer. Unfortunately the contractor who built this house put the first wall paper up on the sheet rock without any prep. I now have to mud, sand, and prime, and work work work. My friend is coming Monday so I put everything back for now. I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to paint it or paper it. It all started with some wallpaper that I found at Hudson's salvage for $1.99 a double roll. It's a really pretty soft applegreen/lime in a more contemporary pattern. Now that the walls need so much work it doesn't seem to make any sense to put more paper up. My kitchen is on the small side so there really aren't a lot of walls to work on. I'd like to tile my back splash areas. We went to ceramics last week and I painted a square door knob, if it turns out cute I may do enough for all the cabinets.
Ya'll can help if you'd like, whatcha think? This patch of color is some paint I got at Lowe's for $5. It's brighter than in the photo. I tried to get a pic of the wallppaper and it just ain't happening. The paint color is brighter in real life and less brown. Anyone want to suggest something?
My dishes are all different colors. I have some blue and yellow pottery and also the Franciscan Apple. I have been thinking about a red and cream combination but my floor and counter top are in the brown tones, which is why a terra cotta color might be pretty. I'm going to paint the space above the cabinets with the white that is on them. Now you know, I don't spend all my time blogging after all.
