So we picked up a ton of paint strips and then chose some samples to try out. There were a few debacles. The person at Lowes gave us the wrong colors and then one sample was just white. So we had to go back and get the right colors. But we finally settled on the Valspar color London Coach. We only needed to do one coat and the green monster was a memory, thank goodness. Despite the white cabinets, the room feels very cozy and peaceful. I will definitely bring in some accent colors once the movers deliver my stuff, but for now it's such a huge improvement.
Now all it needs is cabinets full of stuff, a few fun touches and some more flowers near the window! Not to mention a new light fixture on the ceiling (no boob lights welcome here!) and maybe a new fixture above the window down the road. But it's a huge step in the right direction!
