The kitchen walls are painted pink.
Not just pastel pink. No, it's a kind of 'moroccan pink'. An earthy color you can find in the medina.
Our kitchenwalls were covered with scrapwood for more than 10 years. We loved it, the kitchen had this natural basic look. Everything looked nice on the wooden surface.
We already had a wall make over in mind for some time, we did not know whether we wanted tiles or something something completely different.
Besides we were a bit worried it might affect the nice no-nonsense atmosphere in the kitchen.
Two weeks ago, during breakfast we spontaneously decided that it was the perfect rainy day to knock off the scrap wood.
Always exciting... well the beginning was quite scary, but after one wall we liked it. The planks we threw out the kitchen window and in less than an hour the walls were completely gutted.
The pretty pink paint was already in house! We decided to paint across the battered plaster for a rough look.
The kitchen looks completely different, with the same utensils.
We are delighted with our 'moroccan pink' kitchen. The color is even better in real and it changes with the light. Superb!
