Orange You Happy, Yet?

Warmth

Just last week, my kitchen looked like this. I painted it this color before we even moved into our house over 4 years ago. It has been a wonderful color, but I was growing a little weary of it, to tell the truth.

Now my kitchen looks like this. It's soft and light and pretty.

I like pretty.

The motivation for the sudden paint job was the purchase of this sofa the weekend before. We set it down, up against the orange in the kitchen, and I lost all vision in my left eye for about 10 minutes. After I recovered, I painted and re-caulked and cleaned and then I sat down in front of the TV, faced the sofa and kitchen and smiled.

Somebody got a bit curious about that strange-smelling green goo I was playing with...

See it? Right there?

And as I didn't find any dog-head shaped smudges in the paint on the wall, I can only assume he stuck his head in the roller pan.
