home :: kitchen so far

Hi!

Last week I finished painting the kitchen. Actually, I finished repainting the kitchen. Ivan and I made our first bad colour choice with the original colour we chose for the kitchen. We really wanted yellow but the colour we picked ended up looking neon! We picked a new colour, started over and now I love the colour!  It is a really pretty golden colour that matches the yellow in the wall tiles.
I thought it would be fun to share a few peeks from our kitchen so far. It is not completely perfect by any means but I like showing in progress shots.
My favourite thing about the kitchen at the moment is the built in cabinet with our Pyrex display. I love looking at it! Oh and I like our silly little calendar too. I am having so much fun decorating bit by bit.

Today I am off to look at getting a pretty little Christmas tree. I can't wait to show you guys once it is all up and decorated! Usually I am a bit lazy about decorating for holidays but I am so excited to do it this year. Having a house is fun!

  1. Your Pyrex display is amazing. My fiance's Christmas list is made up for several different vintage Pyrex goodies. The "Forest Fancies" is one of them! :)
    That calender is simple adorable, by the way. Have a good day!

  7. Elycia, it's sooooo pretty! That colour is perfect, I don't think I would choose it from a paint chip but it's so nice on the walls. Good work, lady! I don't think I can comment on the Pyrex display without being overcome by jealousy ;)

  18. That built-in is great! I have a couple pieces of that olive green pyrex. I've been on the hunt for the pink and light blue pieces (they're my fav!). And what a unique calendar -- I've never seen anything like that!

  30. Your kitchen looks amazing!!! I really want to be able to decorate a whole house by myself, but for now I guess I'll just have to stick to the dollhouse in my closet ;) I love the yellow color! It's so warm and lovely =) I actually saw one of those mushroom pyrex in a second hand store the other day, and thought of you!

  35. I love love love your pyrex collection :)

  36. thanks everyone!

    I am going to put together a little "how I did it" post on stacking pyrex. As for the "fondue set" I think they are just two different pots that happen to look like a set when I stack them. They have different handles so they definitely don't match. My mom thought they were a double boiler thing when she saw them. I got both of them at a thrift shop.

  37. I love it!! The colours remind me so much of my "childhood" kitchen!! awesome! I just want to curl up and have a coffee in there :)! Good work!

  40. Your kitchen looks great! I admire you repainting- I chose a green that ended up a tad more neon then I wanted but was way too lazy to redo it for now. (cough, cough... 3 years...)

  41. Cute! The built in displays your collection nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  42. The color is lovely! The owls are so cute :)

  43. Is that a double-boiler?? I had no idea that those things existed pre-made...I usually just put a large bowl over a small pot. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  44. It looks lovely!! :) Yellow is such a tough color to choose...we painted our living room yellow once, and it took *so* many coats, too! Yours is a lovely mustard shade...I've been looking for one - do you mind sharing what brand/shade it is?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Michelle, it is Behr 'Solar Fusion'. We got a paint and primer in one type of paint and it covered well in 2 coats :)
