Just to give you the heads-up… I may not be posting the next couple of days. You see my dark and dreary kitchen is finally getting a makeover. Painters are going to be coming over and and giving me an all-white semi-gloss kitchen. I am totally nervous about it. I love all white kitchens but do worry the semi-gloss may be too much for people. But as you can see, when it comes to food photography, I need all the help I can get with natural sunlight. And soon that window won’t get any light at all once the leaves come out.
Not only that, I will finally have a MATCHING all white kitchen. These cabinets did not get painted and are the original oak. Turns out the original owners of this house went away for the weekend way back when and came back to half their kitchen being white thanks to their kids who unfortunately did a crappy job.
You can’t really tell here but the walls are also very dark which does not help a north-facing kitchen gleam. They are a dark sage and very close to being olive green which is my most hated colour ever. Too close for my comfort and makes me sad.
I will be honest. I almost backed out. It’s a lot of money which always gets me stressed but I do know that kitchens sell houses and right now, this kitchen really needs help and isn’t very sellable. Also, I spend all my free healthy time in there and the colour depresses me, seeing the cheap paint chipped away makes me roll my eyes, nothing matches, the off-white colour never looks super clean…
So it is going to happen and Reg and I will be hiding in the basement with only one computer between us. I might just take a blogging holiday so don’t worry about me if I am gone for a bit OK? I will try and sneak some pictures of the process up here if I can though. I love being a foodie spy!
