Painted inside open cabinets and randomness . . .

Thank you for the advice and comments about my teeny tiny laundry room. We are leaning towards stacking the washer & dryer to create more space. The only problem is that I won't be able to keep my pedestal drawers. I have been searching Pinterest and my favorite blogs for ideas and can't wait to get started! Hopefully this weekend! Fingers crossed!

In between all the laundry room planning, I made some changes in the kitchen. The open cabinets needed some color so I grabbed some paint and got to work!

I had to remove everything to paint so I changed up the accessories. More aqua and white brightened things up.

Here is the cabinet above the microwave. I added some aqua in here too. The chicken was red and white until I changed her up with some aqua paint.

This is what she looked like before . . .

She looks much better in aqua!   

I also purchased a chalk pen so I could write on my new Menu Chalkboard.

I'm loving all the pops of aqua in my kitchen! 

Paint colors used:

Inside cabinets - Annapolis Green

Menu Chalkboard - Aquatic Mist

Have a great weekend!

  1. I have pops of aqua in my kitchen, actually the color is more of a teal. I love it,and I love the idea of painting the inside of the cabinets! It looks great!

  2. I really like the way the chicken looks with the aqua. If I was not renting my house, I would totally have my paint brushes out to paint my cabinets.
    Looking Good!

  7. You are so right, aqua does make everything better! I love all those touches, but I think the newly aqua and white bird is my favorite. Thanks for linking up to the Spice Up Your Kitchen party!

  8. Your kitchen looks clean and fresh. Having a color scheme is a fun way to make a certain room interesting. All you need to do is to mix and match the colors that you want. I like your white and aqua combination because it gives the area a soothing atmosphere. It's funny because as I look at the pictures, I tried to spot the aqua items too. :)
