Before I made the final choice (at $17 a square foot), I went to Lowe's to get a sample of paint in the same color.
Lucky me, they had a small can of the EXACT color on the mistake table. It was $1 instead of $4.
I also bought some paint in yellow and in a couple shades of red.
(The first photo is the color in the daylight; the second photo is the color at night with the hood light on it.)
And since the blue was the closest to the color in my inspiration kitchen, I went with my gut and ordered the blue.
They also have a very fine crackle in the glaze, which I like. It makes them look a little older, which I think will give the kitchen a more lived-in look.
I think they are just so pretty.
Since it was a custom order, it will take 4-6 weeks to get the tiles. In the meantime I can paint the walls and baseboard, attach the baseboard and get the stuff all moved back into the kitchen.
I already have started with the moving back in part.
The old fridge is empty and waiting for me to give it a good cleaning. I think I have found it a home already.
I also got all my cookbooks in the glass-doored cabinet. It is nice to be able to see them. Plus they look so pretty and colorful.
The manfriend commented that I have a lot. But I think it is an addiction. I love cookbooks.
