A Turquoise Makeover

I love my kitchen.

True, it is stuck in the 1960’s but I think the outdated decor gives it charm. Besides the stove is to die for with extra space in between the burners and two ovens.

I have received lovely comments about the avocado green cabinets. I have tried to live with the color these past 6 years. I have even tried to embrace it by making a matching fan cover

(see it above the stove?) and lining the shelves in green.

Yet, the color just feels drab to me.

So, yesterday I decided to see what different colors would look like on the cabinets by painting small sections with acrylic paint. First, I tried red. It was nice. Then, I tried my favorite color turquoise.

I just stood there grinning from ear to ear. It made me so happy. This was the color for me!

Can you see it?

Unfortunately, some prep work has to be done before I can paint the cabinets. There are years worth of grease coating the cabinets that must be scrubbed off first. I’m hoping Dawn will make mean work of it.
