Repainting the Breakfast Nook
Updated: Nov 14, 2023
I know what you're thinking... didn't I just spend all of last week reworking the dining room? And now I'm changing up the breakfast nook. Well, yes... that's exactly what's happening. The only difference is I have been planning on repainting in here for awhile.
I love how the breakfast nook looks on it's own, but when I'm actually in the space it feels somewhat disjointed from the kitchen.
I really want the breakfast nook and kitchen to feel more like the same space, because they very much are. I actually added this project to my to-do list before I started on the dining room last summer, but it certainly wasn't urgent so it got pushed. Last weekend I decided to finally tackle it, spurred on by a collaboration with Datacolor- their color reader allowed me to get an exact paint match without going to the store with a piece of wall (yes, I have totally done this before).
This gadget is going to come in so handy (use my code JENN for $20 off here)! It matched our soft neutral walls to Sherwin Williams Neutral Ground so I ran out to grab a gallon which was more than plenty for this small area. Kris tackled the rolling while I cut in, which let's face it, this was all cutting in!
I will 1000% die on the hill that I hate painting. It's absolutely one of my least favorite things to do, but we knocked it out and got it down! The walls are looking a lot fresher in here.
And not only that, but it feels like one with the rest of the kitchen now. I love that we still have the pops of blue, but it feels nice, soft, and airy in here.
What do you think? Did you prefer the blue or are you on board with the new color?
