color me happy | wk4 ORC

This week of the One Room Challenge has us lookin' up and seein' all sorts of pretty colors. With wall repair, prep and paint going up, the next step is the big one- the NEW CABINETS!

On the tile game, here are those details from The Tile Shop and their gorgeous additions to our kitchen! Floor tile, backsplash on sides of the kitchen, oven side backsplash, and the liners that will add a touch of sophistication and picture ledge for above the oven.

We have them saved in our shed after having to rent a UHaul and pick them up ourselves before the ORC even began! Yes, we ordered them in February and am hoping that everything looks good when we unbox, but will have to make them work. The story of our lives is that simple yet significant quote from Tim Gunn. Sidebar: I interviewed him at Parsons School of Design in NYC in 2002 before his run on Project Runway. That man is brilliant and makes you feel so special in his presence. Boy, I miss that show, when it was in its early years, too. So Good!

Anywhoo, we are on to what makes the space FEEL like it's coming together- PAINT.

For the kitchen, here is what we went with for our color choices.

Stone Lion Salamander Wetherburn's Blue

We got a cool new gadget that allowed us to transform the look of a vintage hutch I scored off of FB Marketplace in January that will be going up on our window wall as an upper cabinet, of sorts! Watch us spray it below and feel free to try it out for yourself with code WHITLEY when you purchase one!

Here is the hutch originally purchased for $100 (YES!) Walnut with a stain but I could see the potential! Then, I painted the interior Coventry Gray almost like a primer. Then, my husband sanded the stain from it, primed all of it and then we sprayed the inside first, taped it, then sprayed the exterior section last. What a difference a little paint makes! This will truly make the window wall a cool statement with housing more dishes and chochkees.

Be sure to check out all of the other designs happening here!
