Very cute! I am in love with the green paint you chose!
I noticed you have a white area beneath the green, perhaps a tiled back splash or something less expense than tile could be used to fill in that area. It seems lacking compared with the rest of yr newly refinished kitchen.
Thanks for your comment! The white area is actually gold fleck formica. You cannot tell form the pictures, but it is in pristine condition. Gold fleck is actually my favorite and I have always wanted it in a kitchen, so I was excited to see that the countertop and backsplash were intact and didn't need to be removed. Also, they no longer manufacture the gold fleck style (which I was sad to hear - my boyfriend's dad works in cabinetry and they just recently discontinued it)
One qualm tho.. (not meant to insult) I think the wallpapered wall is taking away from the fact that you wallpapered the inside of yr storage areas. Granted I understand the concept of having a focal wall (and I see you were going for that) perhaps you have over stepped the bounds with having the whole wall, storage area included, singled out as a focus. The frame around that particular storage area seems more two-dimensional rather than the eye-popping three-dimensional effect the rest of the areas have.
I actually agree with this. We haven't completely finished the walls, we have metal bars from ikea that store kitchen items and a really neat vintage papertowel/waxpaper/aluminum foil dispenser that will also go on that wall...which I think will break it up enough to correspond better to the rest of the room. The spice rack I originally had completely blue.... and that looked about as good as what it does now. So I put the paper in. It's alright, but not great. I hadn't thought until just now that maybe I should have painted the paneling frame around it white to mimic the cabinets and look more cohesive. Maybe I will do that! But again, we are going to completely remodel within the next two years and my main goal with redo-ing the kitchen was to make it appear bigger.
Really, I'm just glad it even turned out. I had this grandiose idea of making it look vintage, but clean and not TOO completely themed. At times I felt like I was just drawing from a magic hat and crossing my fingers that it would come together.
Thanks a lot for the comment, I really do think I am going to paint that spice cabinet white now...and see how that looks.
