I am sure you were dying from the cliffhanger we left off with. The question was which room in our house I would use our fresh white paint choice on first. If you guessed the kitchen, you are a winner.
We made this choice because it is so enormously yellow-y that whenever I do photography in here, I have a warm tint that is complicating photo editing. What everyone considers when they paint a room, I am sure.
I was shocked it took two coats to get full coverage. After one, you could still even see the white test swatches I had painted up beforehand. I do not care really, because I am so happy with how the white choice turned out. It is not the least bit cold and sterile feeling as I feared the true white might be.
It required so much strength for me to not to the dining room right away. (Oh you know, the other responsibilities I must not neglect such as feeding the children.)
Actually, it did not require any strength because I was out of paint.
I did have enough, however, to paint the light switches from their horrible yellow. It was a makeshift job, but with two coats they were much better. Leaving them would have been a sore thumb scenario.
Our new white with the remaining beige pieces (table, backsplash, counters, horrible hardware) clash, but that is okay because I desperately want to get rid of every scrap of cream and tan in here. Having the wall color more fresh makes me even more eager to do so.
