Kitchen Changes in Progress

I am still trying to get my kitchen back together after painting it last week. I have to admit I loved the change at first, but now am kinda missing the red walls. Second guessing myself is so what I do! I drive myself crazy! I like it, I guess I just have to get used to it again. It's the same color I had before the red. The color is not as yellow and intense as it looks in pictures. I made the valance from a Waverly tablecloth I got from a yard sale last year. I have 2 other toile valances and I may put one of them back up when I want a change. I keep telling myself I am going to quit buying rooster stuff and it's like I can't help myself. I love roosters, but don't want a "rooster kitchen" - ya know? O.K., now I am rambling and I need to go to bed. Have a great Thursday everybody!

I just stumbled across your blog, and I loved it so much, I had to link it to my blog roll...I hope you don't mind! I love your kitchen. That yellow is SO cute. I love your style!

If you want to, feel free to check my blog out, but I'm just getting started!

Oh ya, it looks fabulous. I love your style.

Oh you r as crazy as me. I do it too then second guess myself. All my girlfriends keep saying, " How many times are you going to paint that room" Of course they never paint.... But it is a stress reliver for me to paint i have come to the realization. And it is a cheap way of change. You and i need t go to the ROOSTER addiction group. lol. mishelle

I love the tablecloth! You must bring more roosters back - I love what you've done but it's missing more of you!

Angie said...

I love the yellow in your kitchen and your curtains are SO cute!! What a great idea, you are so creative!

Michelle said...

I really love the yellow...looks great! (I know what you mean about how it looks in pics, though...it's sooo different in person!) You've got such a great sense of style, Angie...everything looks so nice!

Happy Thursday!

Hi Angie, I think the yellow is beautiful. I second guess myself all the time! I have a hard time commiting to a color, but sometimes you just need to rethink the accessories to make yourself happy. I have been not loving my yellow living room walls, they were too dark and just not right.I changed the curtains to a plain white instead of the dark print I had up and it changed the whole room! I love the accessories and curtains you have used since you painted but you might be happier with the yellow if you tweaked something else.

Theresa said...

Wow, it is gorgeous!! The red really pops with the yellow. Great job!

Stacey said...

Oh it's so sweet! I love the yellow, the curtain, and the Bistro sign! Where did you find that sign? I know what you mean about roosters...I don't want to have a 'rooster' kitchen either but I can't help but love them and buy them. I have lots.

Crafty Niche said...

I love the new color! Looks great!

Jboo said...

I think it looks fab! Very "happy"

Shannon said...

I think it looks great! I love the yellow with all your red accents.

Susan said...

It looks great. I think you will love it during the dark, dreary winter months. (assuming you have those where you live!) Kmart and Sears just started carrying a Country Living line and I think it's Sears that has a red Rooster.

Heather said...

love it! love the curtain fabric!

Amber said...

I really love your kitchen. It's bright, cheerful and cozy-all of the things a nice kitchen should be. I am painting over the red in my kitchen, too. It's nice, but I just feel like I'm getting tired of it.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Hi Angie~
WOW, it looks AMAZING! I love the yellow with the white on the bottom of the walls, and the window valance you created! I may have to "copy" you with how you did that, if you don't mind~ and of course, I will link it to you! How you decorated the room is wonderful! :)

I know what you mean when you said you tend to second guess yourself, I do that ALL the time, especially with paint! :)

I hope you are having a fantastic week! :)

Brittany said...

Looks so cheerful and happy! I know what you mean about second guessing though, I totally agonize over paint colors!

Lisa ~ A Cottage to Me said...

I am the same way with painting and color. I want to change...but what if I don't like it as much! Your colors are wonderful and your decorating touches are enviable. Great work!

Mandi @ Finding Home said...

I just love what you did with the window. It's way to cute! I know what you mean about roosters...I'm the same way with stars. I love them so much and have them everywhere but do I really want my home to be star themed? Not so sure but I do love them!

Domestic Designer said...

Looks great! I really like your curtain.

Leanne said...

I love red, but I love the yellow walls too. I'm about to paint my almost finished mudroom,yellow. I think it will look great with white beadboard. I hope so anyway. I love all your roosters too. Thanks for sharing.

Sandy said...

I really like everything. It is inspiring me to do my kitchen over.

April Pantall said...

I love it...so homey!

Calamity Anne said...

I love the rooster material for the curtains!

St. Michael's Wife said...

I LOVE, LOVE.LOVE this room! It's amazing how hundreds of decorators can use the same colors and still come up with hundreds of different looks, and yet ALL beautifu! This one is a winner for sure!

Grins!

I love the black bench that compliments, but doesn't match it. Very nice!

Kristens Creations said...

I love your new color! It looks great...as you have probably noticed I have almost all yellow walls. Everything just pops agaist them. I've thought about painting my kitchen, but there's no color I like better than yellow. I love how you frame calendar prints too, wonderful idea!! Kristen

Rita @ Goodwill Haunting said...

I liked it before ... and I like it after! I just love bright colors ... Thank you for sharing!

Jeannette said...

Hi Angie! Funny I was thinking of putting my kitchen back to what I had a few years ago!!! AND I DO the same thing with the second guessing BUT DON'T It looks beautiful as is everything you decorate! The curtains are adorable too and roosters fit everywhere so keep on buying!lol Sincerely, Jeannette

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

I love your new paint color in your kitchen! It looks so cheery. Your new valances are wonderful too - coming from a fellow rooster lover...I am addicted to them too.
Hugs,
Penny

Well I love yellow so I think it looks great! I'm sure you'll tweak things and come to love the new color!

Jan said...

I love both the yellow and the red on your walls. They are both lovely colors. I am a rooster kind of gal, so I will say add a couple of more rooster. Everything looks beautiful!

Blesings,
Jan

It always takes me a good while to get used to a new color. Your room looks great!! You put things together so perfectly! Oh, and there's just something about those stinkin roosters!! I can't loose the habit either!

Jen

I love your kitchen, I've been wanting a set with the bench of awhile now.

Misti of Studio M Designs said...

I love your sunny yellow kitchen! Very pretty! You did a fabulous job on the re-do. I also love the window with the new burlap. I have GOT to finish this class so that I can get back to decorating and crafting. I miss visiting my favorite blogs too!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

How did I miss this post?
I love how you changed from red to yellow-it is perfect!
I like rooster accents, to, but don't want a "Rooster" kitchen, also, so I get what you are saying!
Nice job!!!

Sherri S said...

I LOVE the red with the yellow/gold! I just painted my kitchen yellow and have white bead board. Never thought of RED as the accent. Looks FABULOUS!

Lindy said...

I love roosters, too. Your curtains are adorable and they don't scream rooster.

[I can so relate to "can't stop buying them but don't want a rooster kitchen." I have one on display and FIVE put away in my kitchen cabinets. Yikes! I keep telling them they will have to wait their turn.)
