Since we don't have cabinet doors, I FINALLY took everything out and painted the insides.
It was a yellow cream, but lightened up as it dried.
And yep, as of this second, my kitchen STILL looks like this.
Great news is that Nathan is finding all kinds of yummy snacks.
I was going to paint the wood between the soffit and the cabinets yellow as well, but when I started it, i didn't really like it. Now I'm thinking I should paint the soffit, but I don't know what color. The dining room is a pretty warm yellow, and our contrast color has been a cabernet, but I think i'm over that. And I certainly don't want to paint a red on the walls at this point. That's a lot to cover if I don't like it later.
Ignore the tile, because eventually we'll rip that up, and put down a pine floor to match the dining room.
What do you think?
