We've completed kitchen redecorating phase 1, stripping off two layers of wallpaper put up by previous owners then painting the ceiling and walls. We decided on a colour to match with the oak cupboards, Benjamin Moore Ginger root. It looks more golden in the actual light although in the pictures it very closely resembles the sample on the website.
This project came up rather quickly as we're looking at replacing the floor with new vinyl in a slate look pattern by Mannington. We may be able to have it in before Christmas so decided we should paint before any new flooring arrives!
Click here for a look at the flooring we've picked. It actually has more black to it than shows on the website but I noticed that the floor colours matches the palate shown on the Benjamin Moore page, so I guess we're on the right track.
So the flooring will be phase 2, then the next phases in no particular order will be new windows and plantation shutters, new countertop and sink and a new backsplash. We'll probably work on these projects throughout 2008 so I'll be sure to post the next phases as they're done.
