Third time's a charm.

It's just too bad when this phrase is referring to the color you paint your kitchen! I was so excited to get our kitchen all painted and finished and be done with painting and just put our house back together until this....

The picture actually makes it look a lot better than it was. I did most of it when Nora was taking a nap but when Klave got home he's like, "Don't even finish painting it." It was that bad. A little too retro for us. So we wait a week for paint to go on sale again and Klave took on the job. I wasn't sure of the color we wanted but just something neutral I told him. This is what he interpreted by neutral...

A little too reminiscent of those colorful houses you see as you fly over Mexico. I really wanted to be nice about it but after just a few hours (ok it was more like moments) I knew I couldn't live with it. That night I went and got one last can of paint. Neutral...

Not as exciting as the first two options but something I can live with a lot easier. I guess I appreciate it that much more now.

You know... the definition of neutral is relative depending on whether you are male or female... I'm simply trying to stand up for Klave.
