If you follow me on Instagram you've probably noticed how most of my pictures take place in our kitchen. In person, I'm always dreaming about how I'd love a bigger kitchen with white cupboards and a white oversized farm house sink and ours is certainly none of the above. But really when it comes down to it, our mismatched, tiny kitchen nook has become my favourite room in our house. Whenever we sit down to eat a meal or have a coffee, I just find myself feeling so thankful for the cozy, colourful space that is so decidedly us - that I think you would have a hard time convincing me there was something better out there otherwise (... I mean I wouldn't say no to a massive stainless steel fume hood, beautiful backsplash and an island ..... a girl can dream after all!!). In reality, it never really matters what a kitchen looks like - it's always the room that ends up with the party. It's some kind of unspoken phenomenon, I'm sure of it.
My latest addition to our favourite little space are three green chairs! We were in need of a few more - we had acquired four from a table + chair set that was my grandparents. We upgraded the table to a large oval one from Ikea in the Spring because we were always eating on top of each other when family came over, and instead of buying new chairs to go with it, I took the ones I bought at a thrift store for 2$ each and painted for our wedding last year, and painted them a nice shade of Kelly Green from Benjamin Moore. Mostly Kelly Green because our last name is Kelly so really how can we not? Also! I've decided that Green is my new favourite accent colour.
KELLY GREEN MAKEOVER:
I tried to copy a picture I saw on the internets but it turns out it's much harder to pile chairs then you would expect. ^^^ And all of this while Juney was napping in the room behind that wall.
I'm so happy we've resurrected these from my sister's garage where they spent the better part of a year following last year's festivities. And now it's neat to have saved our seats from the head table to keep in our everyday. I'm super happy with how they turned out and I'm loving the pop of green!
