Test Pots

One thing I haven't blogged about is our very 'retro' kitchen at the new house.

In addition to the matching blue lightbox and blue chandelier that completely remind us of the pizza dinner scene in E.T., pink and purple shaded track lighting above the sink, and greenish-blue remote control undermount lighting - our kitchen now also has three strips of potential paint options, courtesy of three itty bitty, super cute test pots, in three different spots around the room.

Enter the contenders: (all in our favourite brand, CIL Dulux)

Chelsea Fog

Reflecting Pool

Canadian Sky

Also in the running is our favourite green from the old house - no swatch, sorry - it was a custom mix the previous previous owners came up with - that we liked - so much so that we used it for the kitchen, basement TV room, and laundry room.

And I know, I know, the colours all look pretty similar. Even the paint supervisor at Home Depot said so. But they're not so alike once they're up on your kitchen wall!

And with plenty of trim, cabinets, windows, doors, etc. to paint around in this kitchen, we'd really like to do this just once.

We'll keep you posted!
