Now that it is winter and I can't be outside working in the yard or garden, I can start working on decorating the inside of our house. One of the first things we did after we bought our house, a little over two years ago, was paint our kitchen cabinets red. I always wanted a red kitchen and the house that we bought had cabinets with a darker wood. So before we even moved in I had Ott, E take all the cabinet doors off. We sanded them down. Painted them with a gray primer and then painted them red. It took two coats of "Breakfast Room Red" satin paint. But it worked and we think was well worth our time.
Here is a picture of our kitchen before.
And here is a picture of if afterwards.
Of course I like red because it looks great with all my chicken and roosters I use to decorate with. But in general I think it updated the room and gave it some country charm.
