Ok, at long last I have a couple of pictures of our kitchen. Unfortunately, I was in too much of a hurry to CLEAN the kitchen before taking them, but at least they show what a difference a little red paint can make!
Here's a before shot of the backsplash, which has bothered me since we moved in. I could handle the textured white walls just about anywhere else but here because there was no way to even wipe behind the kitchen sink. Needless to say, almost 3 years after we moved into the house, this area NEEDED some wiping.
So we sanded the walls and put on two coats of this beautiful red paint. Doesn't it look MUCH better?
We also painted the red color on the lower half of the wall in the dining area of the kitchen. Stay tuned!
