Kitchen love! ;-)

All day, we've worked like Trojans! ;-)
We had the kitchen walls re-plastered at the beginning of September and since then we have lived in a tip of a kitchen ... until this week when the kitchen was finally decorated! Yippee!


We weren't too sure which colour to choose but in the end we chose a lovely 'Apple Green', by Crown Paints.
It's lovely ...very fresh.

And so, whilst Mr S dealt with the heavier tasks, I potted about cleaning and putting everything back in it's right place!

It is so nice to have my kitchen back again! I love it!

Not to mention all the 'fripperies' which live in it!



Hope everyone is having a fab weekend!
;-)

That looks lovely Sal, so fresh and pretty ..... I was just thinking today of putting some laminate flooring over my vinyl tiles .... I hate them since I saw them in a local M & S simply food store and seeing the lovely effect in your kitchen has convinced me x

Sal said...

To be honest, I don't really like laminate flooring but have to admit it is so easy to clean! ;-)

I know that feeling of putting everything straight after the builders have departed - it is nearly worth all the mess while they are here isn't it? The kitchen looks lovely with all your pink/red touches.

Enjoy it now it's all done!

We've just had a new kitchen and after weeks upon weeks it was finally finished this weekend. All I need now is a nice blind for the window. Like you I chose a lovely green but of course we are both women of taste aren't we!

Your kitchen looks lovely, the colours are beautiful.I love the green with the splashes of red and raspberry pink. It looks so bright and spacious, my kitchen seems very small and cluttered in comparison.
