Picking the Perfect Pink

As most of you know,
we are redecorating our Great Room.
I picked out the perfect granite counter tops
after waiting for 11 years.
Of course, they had no sample for me to take home.
I spent my time in Home Depot, running between
the large granite sample they had in the
kitchen department and the paint department
trying to find the perfect wall color.
The green base cupboards will soon be white like the top ones!
I had decided on my pink and got the walls all painted before the installers arrived to put in the granite.
Doesn't it look good in the picture?!!

Here is a little sneak peak of the granite now installed.
The dark pink looked horrid with the granite, sigh...
The lighting in Home Depot is NOT the same
as the lighting in my kitchen.
Two days before my out of state company arrives,
I was back painting the kitchen a new, lighter
It looks
Much better!!
I am exhausted and company comes this afternoon.
We celebrate Hubbies 50th birthday
Tomorrow and my house STILL needs to be cleaned.
We still have a few more redo details to finish also.
If it gets done, great....if not,
the cake will still taste just as good!!

So sorry that I am getting to you a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday. Seems like the day just got away from me.

The sun was out in the afternoon and all day today, so with all the rain we've had, I went outside to play.

As always, it is a pleasure to come here to see what you are sharing and what you've been up to during the week. Thanks so much for making my weekend all ♥Pink and Pretty♥

I know what you mean about many shades but all are lovely!
