Updated Plate Wall.

I wish I was sharing my completed kitchen update with you today. Unfortunately, it's dragging along. I had the best intentions of painting my base cupboards over the weekend but it didn't work out that way. I went to my paint store to get my paint on Saturday afternoon and it was closed for inventory.. and closed Sundays.. It wasn't meant to be! I'll get the paint this week and try to get it done one evening.

On a brighter note, Steph got the painting of the walls done and it's so much brighter! We went with Benjamin Moore Intense white. It's a barely there shade of gray, in fact it's almost white. Once I saw it finished, I decided I definitely wanted to paint the base cabinets a darker shade. The room needs some dark to ground the space.

Here is a glimpse of the paint color on my plate wall. I decided to keep the plates that I had hanging there for the last few years and added a few more to perk it up a bit.


Here is a little clue about that new piece of furniture that has been added to the kitchen. There has been a little snag in its completion but I'm hoping to share it all with you soon!


A closer look at some of my pretty patterned plates. They've been collected over the years, mostly from Home Sense and a few from little shops on our travels. I'm still heartbroken that my favorite one from our trip to Quebec City was knocked off by the vacuum cleaner one day. Actually I knocked off 4 that day and that's the only one that broke! Boo..


More on the paint color I chose for the base cabinets tomorrow! 
Please please please let it be the right choice!

  1. I love your plate wall! I've been thinking about what to do over the headboard in our guest room and this might be the perfect idea! I LOVE plates, but never feel like I can buy them because they're not practical.... but for this, they are!!

  9. They look so beautiful and like they were meant to live on that colour. Oooooh, I can't wait to find out which colour your chose for the base cabinets. And why does a paint store do inventory on a Saturday???
