Makeover Monday - Kitchen Paint

I kind of have a huge obsession with paint. I blame growing up in a house full of white and off-white walls! I really enjoy painting and love trying out different color combos. I have changed quite a bit of the paint in our house since we moved in not even 2 years ago. 

Last summer I decided I wanted to switch up the kitchen color. I really wish that I could refinish our cupboards to a darker color, install new counter tops, and put up a back splash but changing the paint color will have to do for now :)

Here are before pictures:
HUGE mess everywhere  - please ignore :)

Light yellow color all over

Between coats - I think I counted about 20 million outlets/light switch covers

Still between  - at this point, I was a little scared about the color

The finished product:

This was taken tonight since I didn't have any looking straight on - so there is more "clutter" than some pics

I'm definitely happy with how it turned out. I have used this color in other rooms in our house as well. It's kind of a rusty red color. Very warm feeling and brings out the white in the appliances and counter tops. Chris said he likes it too, so that's always a plus!

I have a busy week ahead - a lot going on at work. I hope everyone has a great week and if you're in MN - drive safely and stay warm!
