Gentle Readers, this is going to be an action-packed blog entry so I can bring you an UP TO THE MINUTE report!
As I mentioned last time, counters have to go in before the kitchen is usable. So the plumbing and gas were connected right after that.
BUT we didn’t want to start walking on the floor until it was stained.
I was unconvinced at first, so I tried mixing Natural Walnut with the second from the top. Tilly liked it…
…but she came around to Natural Walnut, as did I.
It clearly is the closest match to the other floors, and the grain of the wood is pretty. I think I resisted because this isn’t so different from our original floor:
I mean, of course it is. But you get what I’m saying. It’s still a fairly light stained wood floor. But sooooo much nicer ;)
Ah – the wall color. The paint color selection process wasn’t very dramatic, I’m afraid. I painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s CSP-95 Sea Salt, and I will confess: I didn’t even put up a sample. (Do not try this at home!) I’ve had my eye on this color for a while, and I had a good feeling about it. The final choice was between Edgecomb Gray and Sea Salt, but Edgecomb was a little too beigey brown. Sea Salt is a lovely gray with no green in it.
SO, Gentle Readers, a usable kitchen! This is pretty much where we are as of today. Next time, I’ll tell you about the hardware selections, and maybe you can help me crack the code on the sink wall backsplash, opposite the hopefully-coming-soon Chinoiserie panels. I’m stumped!
