Farmhouse Window:

Last night I was able to pick up all the supplies needed for the railing.  We're not starting that project until next weekend, but we thought we'd get a head start, and make the cuts this weekend.
I can not WAIT to start!!!  It is going to make such HUGE difference with the spiral stairs!

Here is my inspiration:

I love the rustic look that the beams and rebar gives!

Here's where I left off on the DIY Spiral Stairs...

I have a list of unfinished projects going on all at once right now.  I really need to focus on finishing what I've already started before adding something new.  
ha ha  I can't help myself.

Ever since I painted my kitchen cabinets, the wall color just doesn't seem to fit anymore.  I can't wait to start re-painting the walls, but before I can do that, there are a few things I need to do beforehand.

I wanted to give my windows a Farmhouse look by using moulding.  
If you were to search Farmhouse window moulding, you would come across a variety of styles on what "Farmhouse" should look like.
To be honest, I went with the simplest and most inexpensive. 

So on my previous post, I showed you this picture...

For the window above my sink, I used 1x3" pine wood.  I used my nail gun to adhere them to the wall.

I gave the wood 2 coats of paint, and I also painted the top section of wall with the new paint color!
Sherwin-Williams Sea Salt

I wanted a gray tone, possibly a grayish-beige.  I went with Sea Salt, because depending on the lighting, it gives off a grayish-blue tone.  Very calming. 

It looks a bit turquoise in this picture, but it actually looks gray with a subtle hint of blue in person. 

Then I moved over to this side of the kitchen...


I wasn't worried about "staying in the lines" while painting, because I'm going to be re-painting the walls anyways. =)

These boards are 1x4"

Kind of hard to tell from pictures, but the new framing makes the kitchen appear sooo much bigger!

So before I start painting the kitchen, I'm going to give all of the trim a fresh coat of white paint!  
Hopefully by next weekend I'll have a newly painted kitchen to show y'all! =)

Thanks for looking!
