Kitchen Paint

For the past few days I've been working on getting the kitchen ready to paint. Sorry I dont have any work in progress pics... First I mudded and sanded the walls then began working on the trim. The door and window casings were in horrible shape. I had to scrape and sand them first. Next I installed them, fixed any holes and cracks with wood putty then primered them.

Finally I was ready to paint. The color is a goldish yellow. We picked out the color then found almost an exact match in the oops section. It saved us more than half and to top it off it's Valspar's premium paint.

I also sealed the backsplash with two coats of sealer. All the switch plates on the backsplash are oil-rubbed bronze. The plates in the rest of the kitchen are painted wood.

Here are a few pictures:

Left to do in the kitchen is install the crown on the ceiling, install the crown on the cabinets, install the light bars, and install the toe kicks. I'll be moving on the the upstairs bathroom next though. I need to get the shower built ASAP, the downstairs bathroom is an addition on the outside of the house and isn't insulated very well so it gets very cold in there. This makes it hard to take baths.

Your kitchen turned out really nice. I like that you used stained cabinetry.
