some friends helped me paint the kitchen a few weeks ago- the color is Topsail by Sherwin-Williams. i've used this color a lot. it's pale enough to be calming & "beachy," but has enough color to avoid the 'blahs.' and i am in LOVE with my new cabinets! our current kitchen is fine, but it is severely lacking in counter space & storage. i'm sure i'll have no problem filling up these cabinets, but i can't wait to do it!
crown molding is going in this week, appliances are next... then floors, lighting & cabinet hardware. sounds like a lot, but when you consider that a few weeks ago this room was stripped down to the studs, we've made a lot of progress! i've chosen all the appliances, the sink & faucet. i think i've chosen the lights, too, but i'm not sure about hardware. do all your finishes need to match? i'm torn between cohesiveness & a lovely oil-rubbed bronze drawer pull.
