Color #2: Kitchen

I finally finished painting our kitchen. This is Round #2, as I wasn't happy with the first color (see below). You'd think such a small space would take no time at all. But nope, all those little edges and corners were so frustrating.

This kitchen has a long way to go but I do love the color, it's a muted grayish-blue. Sherwin Williams Sensible Hue 6198. The paint chip showed more of a gray tone and with the first coat it had a greenish cast to it. By the next day, it evolved to a blue undertone (I had even primed over the old color beforehand). So ironically, after I had given up on the blue idea, I found the shade of blue I was looking for.

Next up: new countertop, sink/faucet, tiled backsplash, paint windowsill, and new flooring.
