I didn't realize how drastic my new colors were compared to the old, I though I had done a fairly good job of matching...
(Oh well, these things do happen... )
I have to admit I was starting to worry about my color choices, was it too 1950's? (I want the kitchen to reflect a more 40's feel) and the ceiling being a lot darker wasn't a problem but as you will see with the Before and after on the wall color It was a little to late to be "iffy".
(Before old ceiling color old wall color.)
(New ceiling color, new wall color)It wasn't to long after this Savannah had to head back to Oklahoma, And I was due for my first night of Cinderella set work. So we closed up for the day having the ceiling done and one coat on the walls. We said goodbyes and thank yous and parted ways sporting our war paint!

Friday I headed back out to the lake to finish up, I was also expecting dinner guests Patrica, Caitlin & (Jenny who couldn't make it) to help finish up the painting and enjoy a casserole dinner and movie in the lounge. When the girls finally arrived I had half of the second coat on the walls done and had to stop to throw together dinner.
It wasn't long before the famed hash brown casserole was in the oven and I'd put the girls to work painting!
we laughed and had ourselves a good ole 'Paintin' Party' and came so close to getting everything painted until we hit a snag. Either the paint wasn't dry enough, or the painters tape was to strong but as we painted the tiny half round piece of molding white, and pulled the tape off we discovered it was pulling the new paint off the walls.
About the same time we found that little fact out, it was also time to leave, which was the Pitts because now finishing up the paint in the kitchen would be put off for the next two weeks, due to Cinderella. However this last weekend when the whirlwind settled Patricia Jenny and I were headed for the Casablanca and hopefully the third and final round.
After a few rounds of touch ups the fresh paint was as good as new! we finally got the half round molding painted to satisfaction (at 15 I just slopped the wall and ceiling colors on the molding and made it blend in, now it pops!) I was very pleased with how everything turned out ha ha, I have a knack for picking colors and seldom being wrong about how they will look.
(Jenny gave the new paint and over all look her thumbs up! )
The trim on the under cabinets have be repainted with the same green as the ceiling since this picture It just wasn't right (Like I said seldom). With a smirk of satisfaction across my face I just couldn't help but unpack the new counter ties and see how the checkerboard was going to look with the great paint!
(It just reeks of Americana doesn't it!)
