Remember that half the joy of achievement is in the anticipation.

Well I've finally decided on the color palette for the kitchen. Originally I had thought a nice sage color, but the more I think about it the more I like this. It's called Wickerware by Behr. It will be on the upper half of the kitchen walls and there will be bead board on the lower half.
From my kitchen to the service porch (laundry room/pantry) there are bi-fold doors. These will be painted Farmhouse Red. I love red!
Here's a shot of the crown molding I'm thinking about for the upper cabinets. I think I may head back to Home Depot and pick out a molding that is similar to what I have in my dining area. These areas are completely separated so they wouldn't compete with each other, but I think I might want a more cohesive look for the whole house. We'll see. I've still lots of time and work to do before I even get to place the first piece of molding. The molding, trim, cabinets, and ceiling will be painted pure white. I think I'll do the crown in a high gloss pure white though and the ceiling in a semi gloss, that way there will be a contrast between the ceiling and molding.
