I don’t got the blues.

I don’t got the blues.

Health tip of the day: If you want to lose weight, simply paint your kitchen a terrible color.  You’ll never want to set foot in there again!  Actually, I don’t think this before kitchen’s color was all that bad.  It’s quite pretty.  But does it work in that space?  Nooo. It’s kind of a big fat bummer. And poor Alauna was sick of being assaulted with aqua every time she tried to pour a bowl of cereal or fry and egg.

So light, bright and white it became, with a touch of yellow here and there for fun. Plus I love all the beadboard, beadboard, beadboard, beadboard rockin’ evruh-wherruh. (You have to sing that line like Bubba Sparxxx for it to make any sense).  (If you don’t know who Bubba Sparxxx is … I envy you).

Check out Alauna’s blog The House of The South to see how she did all this on a teeny budget!

    I actually really like the before picture. I love green/turqouise and I don’t think it was bad in that space. Maybe needed some more stuff? I loved the wavy mirrors – I think I had one of those from IKEA! 🙂

    I love the after, but i think the before would have looked awesome with the white cabinets!

    Design gurus say that blue is not good for your kitchen… suppresses the appetite or something, and I can see why.

    Funny how one poster here said they like the wavy mirrors. I hate them!They make me feel nauseous when I look into them. Each to their own said the lady who kissed the cow!
    I do like the new kitchen, but feel just one lonely splash of red in the Dr Pepper sign a bit of a bore. Perhaps some red tea towels or a red jug with white flowers could lift the room? Either way, still better than the before! AND on a low budget, gotta love that!

    Oh, I would have left the colour, but painted the cabinets white! It would have looked fantastic!
