Weekend project

Well, so I had most of the weekend off. I work Sunday night. All of Friday at work I was restless. Knowing I had most of the weekend to do something. Anything. I really didnt have the money to go crazy and take the kids anywhere for the weekend. I really didnt want to go "out" with the girls. And since I am still not in a big "crafting" phase yet, I decided to buy paint! Yep, paint. When I moved into this house back in November, I painted every room in it. Except two. The kitchen and the bathroom. (Ok, and the hallway too, but it is not technically a room)So for $20, I got a gallon of paint and painted my kitchen this weekend. Well, I figure it was cheap entertainment, kept me out of trouble, and kept me busy most of the weekend. Ofcourse here it is Saturday evening, my kitchen has been painted and cleaned for hours and I am still bored! LOL Guess I should have bought 2 gallons, one of the kitchen and one of the bathroom.....maybe next weekend!
One crafty side note, I did paint the Welcome sign above the stove!
Here are some before and after shots.

The new color warms up the kitchen nicely and looks better with the countertops. Good job. The welcome sign looks good too. Way to go painting it yourself!
