Here is my lovely pink kitchen:
|Okay....so the pink isn't horribly obvious, but it doesn't exactly go with the flow...|
For our new paint, we chose a green color called Spanish Olive. And here are the results:
|Love, love, LOVE!|
|We have had the primer over spots on the pink for a looong time...it desperately needed paint. Much better right?|
I am in love with how it makes the cupboards look so much nicer. I feel like I have a brand new kitchen! :D Now we just have to work on those counter tops...
Here is a neat little extra tid bit in our remodeling process: The Cover Plug.
|Each box comes with two covers in an ivory color (like most outlets).|
The first thing that I love about the CoverPlug is that it is made in the USA!
And the second thing I love is that it is a wonderful alternative to putting those silly plastic things in open outlets. This looks so much nicer!
Here is a view of the back so you can see how it inserts into the outlet:
|Two pegs insert into the bottom holes in the outlets.|
The last thing that I really love about the CoverPlug is that it can be painted!! So even though I can clearly see something is there, it blends into the wall and makes it less noticeable for little eyes and hands. And much less of an eye sore! There is an outlet in the kitchen that we never use, so this was the perfect solution!
|...and now it's green...or...um...I mean Spanish Olive!|
Painting it was fairly easy since you can hold the prongs on the back. It did need two coats. But with a really good brush, that might not be necessary. I do feel like it might chip easy, but I don't foresee the need to be taking it on and off too much.
Here is how it looks in action:
|Noticeable but not super noticeable. :)|
The great thing? Our nursery is the same color as the kitchen, so I painted both the CoverPlugs this weekend and I have one for when we move the crib out and expose an unused outlet in that room. Making it safe for an exploring little one. Out of sight, out of mind.
I definitely recommend the CoverPlug. It is a pretty neat product!
