What we've been doing...

My mother and father in law, painting the second color in Savanna's room...hot pink! By the way, the green does not look the way it looks in these photos. It's much brighter in person and more complimentary to the other color.

Savanna was helping them but she fell asleep on her top bunk after a while.

Okay folks, here's the project Larry and I worked on most of the day. In addition to the Benjamin Moore Concord Ivory Color, which is the main color in all the common areas of the house, we have added the color "coffee bean" to one wall in the kitchen. All of the other walls remain Concord Ivory. I've been wanting to do this for over a year now, and today we took the plunge. My kitchen is a coffee/tea theme and has all kinds of stuff along these lines on top of the cabinets and all over the walls. This brown color looks much richer in person but this gives an idea...

And I sponged the same coffee bean color underneath the little bar/counter in the kitchen. I also spent the day re-doing the baseboards. I need to do ALL of them at my house as, believe it or not I've never done them the whole time we've lived here. (Yes, they've been cleaned - no they haven't been painted.) It just takes time to do it all, ya know? (Not to mention money.)

Here's another photo, a little brighter. Some of you who read the blog come to my house all the time, others may never meet me in person and have coffee together til' heaven. Well, I thought I'd share these pics with you even though the colors aren't completely true in the photos. If you're wondering what the little bar is down on the floor it's the little bar that keeps Maddie in the kitchen. We keep her in there most times when we are not directly playing with her or holding her -- that's her area to run and play in the house until she's completely house broken.

Your kitchen is gorgeous. I love the brown with the cream. Oh,and i'm with you on the baseboard, ours need repainting so badly but just haven't quite gotten around to it yet. ;)

Your kitchen is beautiful and I love the coffee bean color. Believe it or not my kitchen is a coffee theme - my back wall is a cream color.
