Pink Kitchen Bliss!

Welcome to my new
Let's start on the far left
and work our way around.

Here is the original white frig. I put the
cupcake I repainted on top. I also put my old mixer
up here since it has been retired. My scale is there too.

Cupcake anyone??

Here is my cookbook shelf over the stove
(Click photos to make them bigger)

The original range....
I guess I will not be getting new stainless appliances
after all. Since I am keeping the white appliances,
I decided to paint the bottom cupboards
my own custom mix I call
"Robins Egg Bliss"

I am so glad for the appliance fiasco....
(see below post)
I had planned on keeping the bottom cupboards white
and getting stainless steel appliances.
It was just too much with all the cupboards and appliances
being white.
When all the new appliances were sent back I had
second thoughts.....
My frig and range are really fine. I only need a dishwasher
that works.
Since I am so in love with my new
Kitchen Aid Mixer
I got with my birthday money...
I decided to paint the lower cupboards to match it.

I picked little glass tiles for the back splash that match.

I can't show you a full kitchen picture because
I haven't got all the cupboard doors painted yet.

Here is my beloved new mixer
I have named her "Birdie" since she is
Robins egg blue.
I could not believe my eyes when I walked in the
store and spotted her.
She was the color of my dreams.
I had never seen one like it before!!

The colors look great with the new
granite counter tops.
I love how the red accents look.
Red had been my favorite color for many years.
Now I think all these colors are my

Just pretend like you don't notice the lower
door missing!

This is on the left side of the sink.
Holly didn't do the dishes yet so we will skip
over the actual sink.

Here is the other side of the sink.
I will get the rest of the painting done this weekend
and will post more shots of the whole
kitchen this next week.
I am very tired but really happy with
how it has turned out so far.
Thank you for stopping by to visit!!

What a sweet kitchen! The colors are great, I love how unique it is for you. Not a cookie cutter kitchen at all. Beautiful job!

Persuaded said...

That is just gorgeous!! Seriously it is beautiful... I adore the shades of pink and blue together. Incidentally, I have a Kitchen Aid mixer in the "color of my dreams" as well... mine is what I call jade-ite green. I have to ask, where did you get that sweet pink mixing bowl to go with the mixer? Mine has a stainless bowl, but I'd love a colored one like that.. are they available through Kitchen Aid?

Llyn M said...

Ok. I'm jazzed over your post. I have a red and aqua-blue kitchen, and I've been trying to figure out if I could add pink. You just showed me that I CAN!! Wow!

When the blossoms of summer begin to fade we can always count on Pink Saturday to bring a smile to our faces and to remind us that somewhere there are pastels and pretty things.

My gosh, I'd be sleeping on your kitchen floor! How adorable. How in the world did you find a pink bowl for your KitchenAid?

Thanks so much for sharing this week. I wish you sunshine and lollipops today and always.

Oh my gosh, honey I just love it. I truly just love the colors. The cabinets are done so beautifully and you have really outdone yourself. I love the red accents. The cherries are just darling on the canisters and your butter dish. I so love it. Cherry things are my all time favorite. I love them. The beautiful cupcake pink with the robin egg blue are just beautiful together, and your KitchenAid mixer is the best. OMG, I love everything. It is so handy and at home. I like the little cubbies to the side of the sink, they are so cute. What a wonderful place to add some of your favs to enjoy while you do dishes. I just love it and thank you so much for sharing today. I am getting around a little late. We had company. Please stop by and read my pink post and see what I did with my boot. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry
