Weekend Recap and progress with the paint

Happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was spent hanging out with family, making yummy meals and almost painting my kitchen. Yes almost :( Seemed the kitchen walls needed a little bit more spackled work on them before we could paint. We did get to prime most of the walls. So close! Here is the room as is.
Yes, its a mess in there and I am ok with it. Really I am. Notice the wording (and the original wall color) on the wall? I did not want to lose the wording so we are going to frame it to look like a sign. I just hope it works.
Here are the paint samples that I have been agonizing over for WEEKS! I have asked just about everyone that came into my house to tell me their opinion on a color. Weeks I tell yah!
I narrowed my choices down to 2. Valspar's Portico and Carolina Inn Aqua Club (the top 2 on the far left). I finally decided on CIAC and I can not wait to see it on the walls. I think the color will go great with the cabinets and the antique glaze on the cabinets. Almost like Spa meets French Country.
Oh and remember the Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos I mentioned I was making this weekend? Here they are with yellow sazon rice, refried beans and all the fixings. Yum.

I'm the same way with paint -- I'll paint samples all over a wall ... then it'll sit for months :) Love your choices though!

I love YHL too. Sherry's a Jersey girl like us. I saw their post with their new bedroom wall color and I loved it too. I bet it will look nice in your kitchen.

Ps Dinner looks Delicious!!!
