Kitchen update

It all started with one piece of furniture that refused to fit in MHM's room as it was intended.   
It now lives in the kitchen.


That sparked the repainting of the kitchen.  I had long despised the toffee color of the walls and truly wanted a neutral kitchen.  When I realized that the cabinets were not actually white I was forced to forgo my all white kitchen.  


The bestie and I settled on a pale yellow.  I tried the color of MHM's room since she despises it and has decided she would prefer it was blue.  I have no idea where she gets the need to constantly change things.  Ha!!!

We loved the light yellow and so last Wednesday afternoon with one 32 oz diet Mountain Dew ... here is the kitchen in its current state ...  



Please note the photo is cropped to only show the wall above the chair rail.  Therein lies the dilemma ... what to do with the bottom of the wall.

I am looking for a pale, bright kitchen.  Bestie and I agreed that the wall below the chair rail needs wainscoting of one sort or another.  I thought I had settled on board and batten but I did not want to rip off the chair rail and replace it with one that would work with the board and batten.  Since I am saving my money for the new back splash and counter tops the rest is all DIY.  Ugh!!!  Then I settled on beaded board.  I was absolutely sure this was the route I wanted to go.  Until today when I bagged both of those for this one ... 


The Pinterest photo comes complete with instructions from this cute blog!!!

Another good photo ...


(via my Pinterest board)

Do you love??   I am thrilled!  Now if I could just twinkle my nose and have it finished!

That decision finalized!!!

Now on to ... back splash, counter tops, lighting over the island and fabric for curtains.  

I will keep you posted and have more photos once I complete the wainscoting!

xo,
MPM
