I wish I had some pictures of what the kitchen looked like BEFORE we painted it... but I shall try to describe it- Brown.

Wow, that was easier than I thought. The walls were this nicotine stained yellowish brown, the floor is brown, the cupboards were brown. It was so ugly. But! My mom came to the rescue, came up for the weekend, and bought some paint to fix the disaster that was our kitchen (The rest of our apartment will have to wait until I have more time, haha)

Here is a delightful shot of the window, the curtains don't really match, but they still look fine, I think, The ribbons look nice anyway!


And here's my mum working hard, and my fiance hardly working. Classic. He was about to leave for work, so it's not really his fault, he did help quite a bit with the near the ceiling bits that us two couldn't reach on our own. And he moved all of the furniture.


And If you look REALLY closely to this, you might see the inspiration for the walls, haha.


Let me know what you think!  Cheesy

I like the pineapple idea.  It's basically like dried fruit, just thinner and without all the added sugar, right?

Nicely done!  Very colorful and definitely better than brown. Wink 

I'm painting our kitchen now, too, but it is still a WIP.  The walls are done and the soffit is done, so now to paint the varnished cupboards.  Ick.
