And what is the easiest way to give a room a different feel? Why, paint of course! So, last week, we painted the back splash in the kitchen. (And by we, I really mean, the hubby painted while I "supervised".)
Find the befores and afters following the jump...
We used the same charcoal gray that we used for the living room accent wall, Magnetite by Martha Stewart.
The color looks fabulous with the bar stools, and really makes the cabinetry look richer and more sophisticated. To cap off our new back splash, the hubby added some moulding to the line where the gray meets the cream.
Then, I used some of the same fabric that I used to upholster the bar stools, and create a new window treatment for the kitchen window.
After freshening up the accessories, our kitchen update was done!

It's simply amazing how a little bit of paint and fabric can make such a huge change in a space. I'm lovin' it!
