Painting the Nut House

Well, we did it. We panted the kitchen. In 31 years I have lived in approx. 16 apartments, 1 condo, a trailer in the middle of nowhere God-forsaken NM.. and finally I live somewhere where the walls are not all white and sterile.

We went with a butter cream yellow for the walls, a tea light yellow for the lintel and jambs. In the final image you can see the variations of colours.

We wil be covering the white spaces.

We are probably going to work on the parlour room next with some shade of green, althugh we have not decided on a final colour. These yelow shades were acquired through Freecycle. Someone had no use for them. Thank you someone. We took care of the entire kitchen with about a pint of each of the two colours. Not bad if I do say so myself. More pictures to follow as soon as there is more painting excitedness.
