I painted my kitchen last week. While my sis was here on her vacation, she just happened to have a piece of scrapbook paper with her that was the exact color of green I wanted to paint the kitchen. Remember, all my walls were builders brown. Yuckie! So, she let me keep the piece of paper and I cheerfully skipped into my local Home Depot and had the sweet fellow there color match it to the paper. It came out almost exactly the color of the scrapbook paper. I don't have a name for the color so I am calling it Granny Smith Green. I also made new curtains in there as well. You can not really see the sweet floral print on them. The green I was matching is very subtle in the fabric.
I loved being at my Aunt Pat's farmhouse as a kid. I know that I should be living on a farm. But I am in a subdivision where there is a HOA and not a sheep to be found. So, I will just re-create my dear Aunties farmhouse kitchen.
