Eric and I got an inpluse and decided to paint our kitchen this weekend. We have talked about it for awhile but with the house on the market weren't inspired to put in the work and then leave it. However, we are considering the possiblity that God wants us to stay put so we went ahead and painted. Although it is darker, there is so much natural light in our kitchen and living room we figured it could work. We are very pleased with the result. Eric is going to install crown molding around the top sometime this week.
