It’s mid-January, and we thought we were going to be eyeballs deep in kitchen renovations and drywall dust – but nope. We’re not surprised (eh, it’s to be expected and there have already been a few minor setbacks), but we are off to a slower start than we would have liked. The contractors will actually begin their work at the end of this week – moving electrical, gas lines and installing a pocket door! – which means that this coming weekend, Scott and I will begin our drywall patch and repair work! I can’t say we’re excited about that, exactly, but we are excited to move forward. Onward!

While we had hoped work would begin last week, we took it as a sign to relish every minute of this past weekend and relax (somewhat), you know, before this kitchen takes over our lives. Instead of our usual monumental to-do list, we did normal, everyday things – cleaned the house, watched a movie, and slept in – but we also spent a day tile shopping and thrifting (the best way to spend a day, we think!).

We came home feeling inspired and excited for what’s to come, and better yet, our wagon was loaded up with this:

kitchen-hutch-01

Our new kitchen layout will allow for a skinny island in the center of the room, and to the right of our soon-to-be wall of windows, we’ll have space for a small hutch! We’ve been on the online hunt for a while now, but a sporadic stop into The Brown Elephant (during a 50% off sale, no less!) had us hauling home this tiny cutie for all of $62. $62! It’s super petite at 34″ wide and maybe 5′ tall; in other words, it was made for our kitchen.

kitchen-hutch-02

Now, it’s going to need work. The finish is too orange for our tastes, but we want to warm things up by keeping the wood alive with a really thorough refinishing job. Up close, we can tell that it was already someone’s project at one point, as there are telltale drips of polyurethane and door pulls that are just ever-so-slightly crooked. This will be a test in patience, for sure, but I’m going to attempt to strip the poly and re-stain.

The inside of the hutch is a bizarre two-toned finish, the glass panels are chipped and the drawer knobs look as though they were installed a half inch above the original knobs (what?). If we don’t forgo the glass altogether, we’ll have new panels cut, and we’re thinking of smoothing out those zebra stripes with paint – but only on the inside shelving! The whole thing will get finished off with new hardware, and whew!, are we excited to see what a difference that’ll make.

kitchen-hutch-03 kitchen-hutch-05

In other ‘Things’ news, we got ourselves a kitchen runner! With a lot of our finishes being white and gray, we wanted to bring in saturated color with a vintage rug, and after making the eBay rounds (like, every day) for months, we fell in love with this beauty. She was so, so pretty online, but my goodness. In person? She is drop. Dead.

kitchen-rug-06 kitchen-rug-07

It’s 2′x10′, which will run perfectly along our sink wall, and while we know that there are two sides to the whole rug-in-a-kitchen thing, well, we’re willing to take that chance. Plus – it’s red! It’ll hide our two favorite foods: pasta sauce and wine. (I mean, right?) It’s taking everything I’ve got to keep her folded up in storage, but the day she sees the light will be a happy one.

As for our tile shopping, we have fallen in love with matte white subway tile, and although we like the look of a classic install, I may or may not be trying to convince Scott to throw in a framed pattern above the sink. We will see! We have time to noodle on that, but it was thrilling nonetheless to land on a look we’ll love for the long haul. And about that countertop debate? We’ve collected a few more estimates on other options, but at the very least, we are now leaning towards a white/gray stone, so, we consider that huge progress.

Baby steps, people. That is, until it all starts crashing down. Yeah, kitchen!

    Oh, man, that rug is great! I have a rug in our kitchen, and I have to shake it out every few days to get rid of crumbs, but I woudn’t have it any other way. And I’m excited to see what you do with the hutch!ReplyCancel

    Ahhh, I love that hutch! I’ve been on the daily Craigslist hunt for a buffet/dresser with a similar shape. You guys got it at a great price. I can’t wait to see its makeover!

    We got a kitchen rug this year and my bf was so sure it would be gross, but I actually love it! It makes the kitchen feel warm and comfortable and its gotten me in the habit of vacuuming every 2-3 days, which is great. The whole kitchen area feels cleaner now. I’m going to try and just take it out once or twice a year when it gets warmer to beat it and maybe spot wash/dry it a bit? We’ll see!ReplyCancel

    • Kim - January 13, 2015 - 10:58 AM

      Glad to hear! We have a rug cleaner place we like that’s not too pricey, so it could get a thorough cleaning every year or so, but a vacuum and shake should be sufficient in-between!ReplyCancel

  • Laura @ Rather Square - January 13, 2015 - 10:34 AM

    Love the vintage rug! We’re rug-shopping for our kitchen right now too. But ours has to be both food-friendly and kid-friendly, so I’m looking for an indoor-outdoor version that can stand up to dirt and my cooking mayhem. ;) Maybe not as design-y as I’d like, but maybe I can find something pretty AND durable. Definitely getting something colorful like yours – great at hiding stains!ReplyCancel

    We did matte white subway tile for our backsplash as well! I think the matte looks so much better than shiny – the shiny subway tiles tend to make me think of a bathroom. Not ideal.

    What was your search for finding that beautiful rug? I need to find a runner that size for my upstairs hallway. Thanks for sharing your progress!ReplyCancel

    • Kim - January 13, 2015 - 1:24 PM

      What color grout did you go with? We’re on the fence.

      When we search, I start by searching for ‘rug runner’, then I select antiques, then I sort by price low-high OR just “buy it now” options, since I hate the bidding game! I’ve found some favorite sellers that way, and I bookmark for them later and check in all the time.ReplyCancel

      • Emily P - January 13, 2015 - 2:41 PM

        Thanks for the ebay advice! Buying on Ebay intimidates me, but my husband is a pro at it (he loves vintage Culver glassware). As for grout color, we did a light gray (maybe an oyster gray?). I think it provides enough contrast to highlight the tile without being distracting. I found that the darker grays were too distracting. Our countertop is light as well (a gray-white granite) and I think the grout marries well with the light countertop. Plus, we have tile to the ceiling on one wall and I think a darker grout would’ve felt overwhelming. Hope this helps!ReplyCancel

      • Emily P - January 13, 2015 - 2:43 PM

        Not sure if my other comment published, but I’ll summarize: we did a light gray (probably oyster gray). I think anything darker would be overwhelming or potentially be too heavy for a lighter countertop (ours is gray-white granite). Hope this helps!ReplyCancel

        • Kim - January 13, 2015 - 2:58 PM

    exciting your kitchen will start soon! We just finalized drawings with out cabinet maker on Monday. We have to get a start on our demo soon & will be drywall patching too! We also finally picked out our countertops which will be a stone grey Quartz (with white cabinets). I originally wanted something more white with swirls of grey but the husband was dead set on grey. Which I think will still look just as nice. Can’t wait to see how yours progresses as we’re in the same boat! Although our cabinet maker is booked up until maybe April so ours might take a bit longer. The wait is killer! :)ReplyCancel

    Beautiful rug! Randon – but I think your rugs are the reason I rediscovered how much I love pops of red. It’s not a color I see a lot on blogs. It’s going to look great with your neutral color scheme for the kitchen. And I am happy that you’re making progress with your countertops!ReplyCancel

    • Kim - January 14, 2015 - 11:43 AM

      It’s funny, because red is not a color we love to use in our home, and yet that first rug in the living room sort of started the whole thing! With our navy couch and other touches of navy throughout, however, we are now staying away from too much yellow to avoid the overly-primary-color look.ReplyCancel

  • Karla - January 17, 2015 - 7:56 AM

    I’ve wanted to put a cool vintage rug in front of my sink but gave up on that years ago as all my previously fairly standard kitchen rug choices turned into something else that always needed cleaning. I’m on the hunt for one I absolutely love and plan to spray it down with that water proofing/protecting stuff you can find in the camping section of most stores; I figure since it’s worked so well at keeping my upholstered dining chair seats easy to clean and stain free maybe it’ll work on a rug. :)ReplyCancel

BACK TO TOP

Aside from the pocket door, one of the things we really wanted to hash out over the holiday break was deciding on paint colors for the kitchen walls and cabinets – and sticking to them! When it comes to paint, I’m truly a waffler, never really trusting my own gut and changing my mind daily. I spent an embarrassing amount of time cutting out swatches, holding them against our current walls, squinting at them at arm’s length and nixing those that were too blue, too green or too pink.

white-brushes

We’ve mentioned that our intention with the kitchen is too keep things feeling classic and clean, and we really want to brighten things up with the big back door and all white cabinetry. The walls will be painted in a super pale shade of warm gray (I think we’ve got a winner picked out!), and we’ll continue that same color into the living room – finally repainting the walls that have consistently felt too cold. (We always say, it’s just paint! You can do it again!, and while it’s a pain to ‘fess up, it’ll really be worth it.)

But back to those white cabinets! Our cabinet maker has already taken down our existing uppers to begin the refacing process, and everything else will be rebuilt. We thought we could salvage one or two of the lowers, but as he began to take them apart, they were in sad shape; we’ve been watching the budget go up (as is par for the course), but for a long haul kitchen, we want to do it right. After deciding on simple shaker style cabinets, pull out lowers and all those nit picky upgrades, our only job was to choose the white. I mean, we don’t even have to paint them ourselves! This is the easiest cabinet upgrade ever!

Well, that is, until we hunkered down and really started sifting through whites. It’s no secret that choosing white paint is an art form, and we began by looking at swatches that are consistently the most popular for cabinets and trim (Simply White and White Dove, and moving forward, all colors are Ben Moore). It wasn’t long before we spiraled, and found ourselves considering everything from Decorators White to Vanilla Milkshake, Cotton Balls and Chantilly Lace. To name a very select few.

BUT. Our white appliances are ever-so-slightly cool, and they’ll dictate the direction we go so that the room palette stays cohesive. In the end, we picked up four samples to test: White Dove, Distant Gray, Super White and White. (Which, by the way, did you know that such a color existed? It quite literally is named White!)

white-brush

We brought these colors home, and using Julia’s tip, painted them on foam core. This would give us the mobility to move the whites around the room, hold them up against our appliances and watch them change in the natural light throughout the course of the day, as well as note the changes under artificial ceiling lights.

white-stove

Above, from left to right, we have Distant Gray, Super White and White. Immediately, White Dove was nixed for being incredibly yellow against the appliances, and White was removed for being a little too flat. (On a side note, I do think that had we gone with stainless appliances, our paint options would’ve opened up.) And now, 2 weeks into swatch hell? We have a winner, and it’s Distant Gray! It’s never felt too cold, and against any of our stone counter options, it just works.

We’ve since taken down the foam boards, in the off chance I’ll waffle. You know, I can see myself now – stirring pasta sauce on the stove, a glass of wine in hand, thinking, come to think of it, maybe we should go with Super White after all. Scott, what do you think? (Silence.) Scott?

Distant Gray, it’s a go!

  • Laura @ Rather Square - January 8, 2015 - 8:55 AM

    People don’t realize how hard it is to pick a white shade! We’ve had to do it for our bathroom and our living room, both ended up being different, with room lighting and surrounding materials/colors that influenced our choices. Your kitchen sounds like it’s going to be a beauty.ReplyCancel

  • Kim - January 8, 2015 - 9:34 AM

    Super exciting! We bought our house already rehabbed, and it drives me NUTS that our appliances are white and our cabinets are a light cream color. Good on you for being diligent about the right color. :)ReplyCancel

    • Kim - January 8, 2015 - 9:42 AM

      We figured that since we’re investing in these new cabinets, it only makes sense to get those details right. It would make us so sad to spend all that money and have them installed and be… yellow!ReplyCancel

  • Piper - January 8, 2015 - 10:47 AM

    How funny- I JUST finished painting my minuscule powder room in Distant Gray. I picked it to match the existing cool white color of the pedestal sink and toilet. When you mentioned you needed a cool white, my first thought was Distant Gray!ReplyCancel

  • Jaime - January 8, 2015 - 11:02 AM

    What a great idea to paint the foam core to test colors!!! If I had only known that a few years ago when I was picking colors for my condo, I wouldn’t have had to live for months with random splotches all over my walls. I too, am a TOTAL waffler when it comes to things like picking paint colors! Ha!ReplyCancel

  • Theresa - January 8, 2015 - 11:10 AM

    After picking up a bazillion swatches we went with simply white on our cabinets. It was the only one without a telltale undertone to it. (until it was sanded then the dust was ever so slightly green) With our black granite counters and repainted walls it is, indeed, fantastic.ReplyCancel

  • Kelly - January 8, 2015 - 12:09 PM

    Love your choice! And I know your pain all too well. I just refinished my kitchen cabinets and spent weeks agonizing over the color! I ultimately went with Sherwin Williams Pure White, which was painted on the cabinets and the walls. Sometimes it feels a bit too cool, but I’ve added some wooden accents, like baskets and shelves which help. One thing to consider is the tile color, too. Different brands of tile have different shades! I went with standard white subway tiles, but returned the first set and ultimately purchased from a different retailer because they were too warm compared to the cabinet color. If you are already set on tiles pull them out to see if your paint choice goes with them, and if you aren’t sold on a tile choice yet, I suggest choosing now, before the painting starts :-). Good luck and I can’t wait to see the results!ReplyCancel

    • Kim - January 8, 2015 - 12:31 PM

      Great advice! We have tile shopping on our to do list this weekend, and it’s a priority after a panicked moment of wondering if we might have went with the wrong white. Ha, I’m hopeless!ReplyCancel

  • melbajo - January 8, 2015 - 2:19 PM

    We are so alike – for every room in my house I’ve painted swatch after swatch, changing my mind a million times before deciding. I tried ten sample pots of different blue/greens for the bathroom – ten! – and finally chose the very first one I picked out. My process seems ridiculous, BUT, I am super happy with every room now, no regrets at all! Now I’m working on picking a white for the exterior and it’s really got me stumped. I don’t do the foam core swatch method, no, I’m slapping that paint right up on the outside of my house, which now looks like a patchwork quilt. I think I’m up to 15 now, gah! Trying to find a white that does not look yellow, nor pink, nor dirty, but also won’t be super bright and glare-y in the Arizona sunshine. Help!ReplyCancel

    • Kim - January 8, 2015 - 2:26 PM

      I think it’s better to have 10 or 15 test pots going in the long run, saving you from having to repaint a whole room (like we’re about to do in the living room – grr)! So, I know all white is different depending on the light, but we were so happy with Designer White by Valspar in the satin exterior finish: http://www.yellowbrickhome.com/2014/05/29/the-porch-is-painted/

      It never reads blue or yellow, and it doesn’t feel obnoxiously bright either! It doesn’t hurt to get a test pot… ;)ReplyCancel

      • melbajo - January 8, 2015 - 2:48 PM

        You are a gem for responding! I’m going to go take a look at designer white now. Test pot #16, here we go!
        BTW, love your blog and all of the big and small projects you’ve been doing in your house. I am two years deep into old house home ownership and it’s so fun watching how far you’ve come – gives me hope! And inspiration – just bought two of the aluma ceiling fans – thank you for doing all the legwork on white ceiling fans so I could just click purchase and not have to obsess about it!! :)ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - January 10, 2015 - 11:01 AM

    I’m glad you were able to pick a white because they all look the same to me lol. I’m guessing the differences were more obvious in person. Picking a color for the main part of the house has proven to be difficult as well. The house is very open so the color will flow from the living room, kitchen, foyer, staircase, and game room upstairs. It’s one thing to pick a color for one room, but this many – yikes!ReplyCancel

  • Monika - January 14, 2015 - 10:42 AM

    Ah yes, the choosing white paint conundrum. Oye! When I owned a hardware store and sold paint (like a 100 years ago), customers would ask me the difference between one shade of white and another. Back then I was very young and silly and always replied “about $7 a gallon.” Now that I’m (ahem) a few years older, I know how difficult the decision is to picking out a white. I’m on my 4th re-painting of the living room because of it! It’s looked like a patchwork quilt for the better part of 2 years now. Just when I ‘think’ this is THE one, the afternoon sun smacks me upside the head in a what are you thinking display of light. Sigh…back to the drawing board. But I KNOW you guys will nail it and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!ReplyCancel

BACK TO TOP

Are we all out of the holiday fog yet?

We’re getting there, although Scott has always been much better about getting back into the swing of things than I am. Maybe it’s because I read too many blogs with lists and resolutions, and maybe it’s because I feel that we should have those, too? In any case, we have nary a resolution (although every year, we do promise to say and do things with love, which works out! Mostly!), and we spent almost our entire holiday break eating and drinking, eating more and drinking more. We binge watched television, the days went by in a blur, and I’m not totally sold on entering January – yet. Perhaps jumping back into routine will help?

But! I say almost because we did check off our holiday homework – the pocket door! Our kitchen contractor suggested that we should have our pocket door ready to go with hardware before they begin, at which point, they’ll swoop in, add the brackets, and most importantly, hide it in our walls:

pocket-door-01

Our old door was picked up from Rebuilding Exchange, and we moved forward with our refinishing under the assumption that somewhere, sometime along the way, there would likely be lead paint in the existing finish. Not wanting to go through the process of stripping again, we decided that we were totally okay with a slightly weathered finish (charm?), and so we chose to go the encasement route – simply meaning that the current finish would get coated in clean latex paint.

We did, however, (want and) need to caulk the door panels (on the left, below), close up the holes from the doorknob, and lightly spackle any deep cuts. The previous knob was remedied with a paint stick on the edge, and repair putty + scrap wood filled the gaping hole. I went over only the touched-up areas with our orbital sander, but I do pinky-promise that I did so while outside, wearing a full suit, respirator and glasses. And, most importantly, you bet that the sander was attached to a HEPA filter on our shop vac.

pocket-door-03

The door was brought back inside to get primed and painted, and having had such great results on our closet and front doors using Sherwin William’s Peel Bonding Primer (neither door has a chip or scratch!), I used the same here. For the color, we chose a very, very soft minty green: Swept Away by Benjamin Moore in a soft gloss finish.

pocket-door-05

We wanted something that felt classic and clean for the hardware, and after going back and forth, we ultimately decided on these New Yorker pulls in oil-rubbed bronze. Scott used a Dremel bit and chisel to prep for install, and we are in love with the results!

pocket-door-07 pocket-door-09 pocket-door-10 pocket-door-11

You may have noticed in the first side-by-side photo that we also swapped the clear glass for this textured, frosted panel. We had originally thought that we would use frosted film on the existing glass, but wanting something more permanent, we had Ace Hardware replace the glass completely! It was a $50 fix, and we definitely made the right choice by going this route instead. We’ve tossed around the idea of adding painted gold letters that lead you into our first floor Work Room (saying, get this, Work Room), and with the kitchen-facing-side being smooth, we’ll have the option to do so! Note: We had the glass replaced before we painted the door, and we taped it off to do the finish work.

pocket-door-12 pocket-door

Okay, to be fair, I suppose we did a little more than just prep our pocket door over the holidays. We also emptied our cabinets and stashed everything away in boxes so that our contractors can do their job more efficiently. They start – fingers crossed! – this coming Monday, and our cabinet maker has already taken down our uppers and has begun the refacing and building!

We’re on the hunt for an island, we’re still waffling over counters, and we’ve been debating wall colors for the kitchen and living rooms, which’ll be the same once we’re done. My goodness, we cannot wait to see everything fall in place.

Alright, 2015! Let’s go, let’s go!
