Hi

This is my first post here, so hope i get everything right!  

My kitchen was really boring - so I decided to brighten it up a bit



The kitchen is really big so painting it that size makes it feel slightly cozier than before as it felt kind of bland.

am planning to do the rest of my kitchen in a retro 1950s style

Hope you like it!

SWEET!  That is impressive.  Did you tape the circles or freehand it?

This is fantastic! The only wall adventures I have are painting every room a different (bold) color -- this is totally inspirational. I am also curious as to whether this was freehanded or taped. Great colors, great pattern -- thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments.

I didn't use tape - just a piece of string and a pencil to do the circles and then just painted the bits in

it was very fun to do, I am lucky that the landlord lets me decorate - as long as when i leave it is back to the original colours.

That's beautiful - I'd love to see it continued on the other two walls!   But I realize that that would be too much for most people (and of course muicho-time-consuming).    What a terrific job you did!
