The one introducing our Kitchen and Dining Area

Welcome back fellow DIY-ers!!

Welcome to THE room that led us to buying this house!

The Boyfriend and I had been looking at some homes that were going to need a lot of work in the kitchen. During that time we really talked about what items and colors we would put in if we needed to completely gut the kitchen. 

We had decided on white cabinets, stainless appliances and dark-ish granite counters.

Welcome to the picture that started it all:
Helllllllllooooooooo my dream kitchen! 

The rest of the pictures on the listing for this house were less than ideal. Well it worked out well for us! We figured with this kitchen the rest of the place would be worth seeing. And we fell in love with it the first time we saw it!
Well, the stone fireplaces and the 2 acres of land helped too ;)

The only thing I didn't like was the green. 
The Boyfriend loved it... but I won :)

Behr's Teal Zeal it is!!! 

Something about teal and white together really makes me happy.
And happy is a good thing when you are cooking, which normally does not make me happy. I'm working on it... 

To get this color, we actually ordered Teal Zeal at 75%! 
Who knew they could even do this?

I went to the paint counter with my dilemma that color "A" was too dark and color "B" was too light and other paint chips were the wrong shades.

 but they are all the wrong shade in my hair! 

They told me I could order a color at half darkness, 50%, or any other percentage.
How perfect!!! They really should advertise this more! 
Harley likes to supervise.

The room is also the dining area. The house doesn't have a formal dining room.
which we don't mind at all.

So the teal will get accented with a spring green (which I am also using to accent the living room) and a little bit of yellow from the living room to bring both rooms together.

So I have my perfect teal kitchen

And you can see the hutch over there on that wall? It didn't look like that when I bought it. Look for that post next Monday!

As all the room, still lots more to do but I love it already!!

Also here is a little preview of my next to-do in the kitchen/dining area. Any guess what it will be?

it is all looking good. I am glad you finally found the right shade in the color you wanted.
