{ Updating Kitchen Cabinets }

Because I can not control myself, I recently removed the doors from the underside of my penninsula in the kitchen.
Why? Because a girl can never have too many unfinished projects in every. room. of. her. house.

Here's what the kitchen looked like before the hostile takeover.

I mixed my own shade of Annie Sloan chalk paint for the body of the cabinets.
And I sent the doors away so that seeded glass can be added to the center of them.

I still love these little hooks I added on to the sides of the cabinet. Even though nothing ever hangs from them.
Okay, so now that I paint the cabinets green, what should I do with the stools?


  1. I don't mind the stools that color, I think it ties in the rug. Maybe more dark wax? Oh and every single room in my house has at least one unfinished project. The curse...

  2. I kinda love those stools in the color they are. And I'd love to know how you got that green shade. Perfection.

  3. This is going to look fabulous! Maybe you could tie the color of the stools in with the red (or orange?) color in the rug. It looks great. I love what you said about not having too many projects going on! :)
