Kitchen nook before and after



Well this side of the kitchen is done! I painted the kitchen nook maybe 6 months ago then I abandoned it because my husband and I couldn't agree on a kitchen table set. Well, he was finally sick of looking at an empty kitchen so he let me get what ever I wanted. I hunted for a month and finally found this cute yellow and white 50's set.

Ok, jenn, now that I see that yellow table, how about going for this look with the cabinets: http://retrorenovation.com/2009/04/28/flower-power-1960s-drexel-bedroom-set/

...you could use the curves within the molding of your wall cabinets to play with the color combo - green and yellow - til you got it right

I really like the green wall color. For a while that was the color I wanted in my kitchen.

I got the paint at Lowes on a whim.
A gallon of paint for only $3, it was a mistint.

my boyfriend and i often have the same disagreements about color, pattern and items in our house. i have been "working" on curtains and a quilt for 3 months now. when it came to picking fabric, he finally gave in because he was tired of me asking about it. :)

Beautiful!! Would love to do something like that with my kithen. Heck.. I'm having a tough time getting my bride to let me "retro-fit" my small home office.
