Kitchen Sneak Preview

I began my kitchen changeroo this weekend and so far, so good! I decided that after more than six years of living in the same place, if I was feeling like a change, a $20 paint job and some new accessories was the way to go!

I got home late on Saturday night from a work event, but still had time to prime the walls. Then, I went to early church on Sunday ran home and got my paint on! It was done in plenty of time to clean, make risotto, and have my pals over for dinner, too!

I've been dreaming about a green kitchen for some time now, especially since seeing some green inspiration on The Inspired Room. Melissa put up some great ideas and pics from Country Living and I've been salivating for more green ever since! The other Melissa, from Off The Wall, also had a post on green and I LOVE this inspiration room from Better Homes & Gardens, too!

So, I found the green color that I've been wanting (Happy Camper by Behr) and it's making me an absolute happy camper! I've been collecting some accessories and have a trip planned for Anthropolgie, too! Love their kitchy hand towels, etc! If you play your cards right, there might be a giveaway involved, too!

I'm sorry, what was that? What did you say? You want a sneak preview of Operation New Green Kitchen? Think you can handle it? Sure, here ya go!

Oooohhhh, I know I am going to love it! My son and daughter in law painted their bedroom a green much like this! I like it a lot! And what a cute, cute idea for a paper towel holder you've got there!!
Can't wait to see more!

I fell in love with that first green picture the moment I saw it on The Insp Room, too. I'm ready to paint something green. Your idea of green in the kitchen sounds beyond beautiful!
