When it comes to my kitchen I have been completely indecisive on what I want to do with it.

I’m trying to get away from the darker colors and lighten things up a bit. But to be honest, I am not sure how to do that. Everything has always been black or brown or different shades of black and brown. And I am sick of it! I want a light and bright house.

Here is my kitchen/dining room in it’s semi-current state. The walls are called ‘fabulous red’. The microwave is not there anymore, but it still pretty much looks the same.


I originally wanted to paint stripes along the entire wall...


... then I found this picture on The Lettered Cottage. Yes, they wall is black, but it is a fun chalkboard black. Mike likes it and so do the boys. I think that they just want to draw on the walls and not get in trouble :)


I also love the way this kitchen. Yes, I know that mine does not look anything like this... and the cabinets are black (see I can’t escape it!) but I love the cabinets and how bright they are with the white walls. I think my kitchen has enough natural light that I could pull off the dark cabinets.


By the time this is all over I swear I am going to drive my husband crazy :)

  1. I love those stripes and the chalkboard walls... you can't go wrong with either? Or maybe stripes on 3 walls and chalkboard on one? :)
