A warm yellow glow

27 Feb

We are making progress which is so exciting. The warm, yellow glow of the paint on the walls is really, really nice. I’m so pleased with it. It looks great with the green cabinets. It really does glow — you can’t see it in these pictures but it’s amazingly beautiful.

Greg went to IKEA yesterday and sorted out the countertop deal. It was quite confusing. They didn’t have the size we needed — they carry it but don’t stock it in their stores. So we had to order it. Ordering it to be delivered to our home had a high shipping cost. Ordering it to be delivered to their store had a high shipping cost plus, evidently, it wouldn’t come to their store nearest to us (still an hour away) so we’d have to go get it at the next nearest one which is two hours away. Insane. The solution? Buy the longer piece. We were going to have to cut it anyway — now we’re just cutting more.

It’s crazy heavy — Greg and I brought it in from my car last night and put it in the staging dining room. I had to joke about it seeming a little flimsy and hoping it could stand up to our heavy use.

    What’s the name of that lovely yellow color?

    I have a Numerer birch countertop and went through several versions of yellow and gold. I ended up with Ben Moore’s Camelback.

    Sorry about the delivery charges etc

    You know that photo doesn’t look real, it almost looks like one of those Pixar sets… o.O Wow.

    Glad to hear the countertops are decent – I’m considering using them on some ikea wall cabinets to give them a better look.
