Well you can definitely say that we have been in "nesting" mode at our house. We are doing all kinds of touch ups to the house in order to get ready for the baby! It's been really fun preparing everything for his arrival. We really wanted to do something different with the cabinets because they were looking a little worn. Luckily we have the coolest landlords who let us paint the whole kitchen! We are extremely lucky to live where we do.
It was hard deciding what to do for the color, but we went with an off white. I am so happy with the way it turned out! It has really brighten up our whole kitchen.We wanted to add a splash of color so we painted the island a polaris blue. I think it gives the kitchen just what it needs! It's unbelievable the difference a little paint can make. It was a long process, but it was totally worth it!
It's so funny, ever since the kitchen has been finished I won't let it get dirty at all. Right when Ben gets something out I put it away. Or if we have one dish in the sink, I wash it. It's a little ridiculous how clean I want the kitchen to be... but that could be because it took us a long time for it to be finished.
