Kitchen updates

After what feels like forever, we've finally finished painting the kitchen!! We even had some help from Lynn one weekend. Here's Adam, hard at work and wearing Lynn's sunglasses in place of safety goggles:

Note the brown and orange walls, which are now gone. Ten points if you know where this T-shirt is from... ten more if you also own one, and also only wear it while painting, to bed, somewhere you won't be seen in public, etc.:

As you can see, we went with a red and tan color scheme for a more updated look. Here is a picture (from the realty listing, before we bought it) with the original paint and appliances:

And here is our newly painted kitchen with new stove:

It's still in need of a few things (like a new countertop and a range hood to match the new oven), but it's sooo much better!


  1. I have to add, that top picture with Adam is truly representative of the colors (brown and orange) in that kitchen. The one they posted on the for sale site looks way better than it actually did in person... Yuck.

  2. Heck yes STD t-shirt! I don't know if I even still have mine. That one might've gone to Goodwill a while back.

    Anyway, your kitchen looks great! Good job, guys. Painting is kind of a pain in the ass, but it was definitely worth it in this case. Well done!

  3. Thanks, Anne! We have lots more painting to do. And although it definitely is a pain, it makes things look so awesome and personalized!
