I work well under pressure.

Really I do.

I am not showing you the before picture!

Because frankly my kitchen was 4 different colors. It was pure embarrassment!

When we moved in the kitchen was a sage green. Well I have fiestaware and I didn’t really think the sage went very well with it. So I painted it a pea/lime green. Decided that was a bit too green and thought I wanted a warmer color. Then came the Texas Longhorn orange. O did I mention in all of this that I never finished the entire kitchen while painting. So seriously all the colors were showing in different spots.

It was really, really, embarrassing.

Then this brings us to last night. I have had a gallon of “pottery glaze” paint for about a month now just waiting to have a kitchen all one color. We have company coming to see our new house for the first time so I knew that I had to get the kitchen one color at least.

Christmas is what…A WEEK AWAY? OMGoodness panic mode!

I started painting last night around 7 p.m. and like a champ I hung in there and got the job done!

Time to sit back and admire it now….well or finish other tasks that have been waiting even longer to be finished. It is a never ending process when you live with and OCD project started like me.

So lets just relax at work today and admire my new kitchen.
