Kitchen Paint

Being at home all day with a sweet baby really makes you want to redo/ update different things in your home.  Problem is we went down to one income once said sweet baby arrived so we don't have near as much money to do those updates with.  A pretty cheap way to quickly change a room is paint.  

I wanted to add a little color to the nook in our kitchen so off to the hardware store I went.  I wanted a deep mustard yellow.  The first color I picked out was Golden Straw by Valspar.

I got it up pretty quickly and it was kind of light....I just told myself that it would darken up as it dried.  Well, it didn't and we ended up with a lovely peach.  Ick.  Back to Lowes.  Color #2 was Mustard Yellow, also by Valspar. 

 Note: the color it's showing for the swatch online is nothing what it looked like in the store.  This is color #2 in the below picture.  How is that anything like the swatch?!

After I got the color up I still didn't like it.  Bleh.  It was totally clashing with my painted doors.  Back to Lowes.  Color #3 was Fried Dough, also by Valspar.

Deep down I think I want to paint the top part too but Hubs says he likes it the way it is.  Between you and me I think he's just saying that because he knows he'll be the one taping off and painting above the cabinets!  Plus...I'm still not sure I'm in love with the color....shhhh.....
