I am a gardener. When the weather is good, as it is about 8 or 9 months of the year in Alabama, I am outside. So during the winter months, (which don't last long!) I try to get an indoor project or two done.
First I updated the living room (read about that HERE). The kitchen was nice. There were LOTS of cabinets and storage and a lot of brown, and tan and beige.
I would love to have white cabinets, but I knew that was a major project that I just didn't have the money time or energy to do yet. So I started with painting the walls of course. I researched kitchens on Pinterest and knew I wanted blue. So I bought several samples to test.

I tested the sample in three different spots and finally decided on a color and began to paint.
The blue was perfect! And in fact, it looked good enough with the brown cabinets that I am temporarily ok with not having them painted.
