DIY/ Paint

{a little kitchen makeover}

kitchen1

When the hubby and I moved into our little apartment almost 3 years ago, we decided that green was a great color for our kitchen wall. Well, I guess taste can change over time or maybe I have just seen too much of it for the past about 1,000 days. Or maybe that color wasn't the greatest choice to begin with.. Hehe

A couple weekends ago we decided to change it up and bought new paint. I fell in love with the color and love the name - Frozen.

Here's the kitchen wall before the makeover.
It actually wasn't quite as bright as it looks in the picture.

It looks like the hubby did all the work, but I promise: I helped (a little). ;)

I love the way it looks (for now) and am excited to see in what direction my taste in wall color will change to over the next three years.

What color are the walls in your kitchen?

    It looks beautiful Vanessa and I love that display cabinet. I’m looking for something exactly the same. Care to ship it all the way to Australia? LOL

      Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Anne!
      I was really excited when I found that little hutch and even more when it was only 20€. ;)
      Hopefully you’ll find one you’ll love soon as well.
      Hugs! Vanessa

    What a beautiful burst of color for a kitchen wall – I LOVE it!!!
    I have exposed brick in my kitchen – so I tend to leave the balance white to brighten it up a bit!

      Thank you SO much, Suzan! :)
      Ohh, exposed brick wall sounds amazing. I really wish we weren’t renting, so we could do what we wanted to our little apartment, hehe.
      I hope you’re having a great week!

    Ha, my kitchen actually is green. And I’m not yet tired of it! ;)
    Probably because I only have a few green striped wallpaper-strips between the neutral ones to have some focal points. So far it still looks good to me. But when I’m moving out here I will sure choose another color for the new one!

    Love, Midsommarflicka

    I really love the new color. I think it is bright and fresh and carefree feeling. I can”t remember what color my kitchen is-it was a Martha Stewart color that changes with the light of the day- xo Diana

      Thank you so much for your sweet words!
      We’ve had these IKEA shelves for a while and didn’t really know what to do with them, until I had the idea of putting them up in kitchen for display and storage. It works out great! :)
      Have a great day!
      XO! Vanessa

    Love the change. My kitchen has wall paper, so no changing of colors for me. Sometimes, I wish I could.

      Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Audrey!
      Our whole apartment is actually covered in wallpaper. That’s how most apartments here in Germany are rented like..
      So, since we’re not allowed to take off the wallpaper, we just painted on it. Hehe
      I hope you’re having a wonderful week and everything is well!
      Hugs! Vanessa

    That looks great, I thought the first picture was the old colour at first, so was happy when I read it was the new shade! :) It goes so well with the warm wood tones.
