House Projects Update- Kitchen Wall Down!

Lots of progress is happening at the new house. We've repainted the entire main floor. We started out thinking Grey Owl from Benjamin Moore was the Holy Grail of paint for us, but it wasn't until we painted most of the house in that color that we realized that NOPE. It's wasn't! This color was very nice but had a strong greenish-blue cast that really turned us off. This color did not lay down as gray for us at all in this big space. We think it deserves a second chance, so we'll try it in the master bedroom. For the main floor, we decided to turn to the trusty Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. MUCH BETTER. It's a beautiful, classic gray that is warm, yet fresh and clean. We love it. Our furniture will look great with this shade of gray. The floors are being refinished this week. We've picked a red mahogany stain. We can't go back in the house to check it out until Saturday. I'm excited though!

Floor swatches! Decisions, decisions! 
 
As for the wall in the kitchen--it's gone for good, and wow, what a difference! We decided to keep one wall facing the living room, and only take the wall that is adjacent to the dining room down. This opens the kitchen right up to the dining room, yet leaves one wall for additional cabinets.

And, it's gone! Much more open!
