More pics and paint help please.

So I should be cleaning the floors so they're ready for the furniture that will be coming soon, but since I'm currently kid free and a bit giddy...I thought I'd blog instead...lucky you!

Here is our first morning...

I know this is a waste of paper...but it was either he play with paper towels or screws. Sometimes a mom must just pick her battles.

And here is Lita, coming to save the kids from the big empty house so I can get some work done...or blogging.

first morning

*I swear Mommy, this only took a few minutes and then I went right back to work!!!*
Yes, I still call my mom "Mommy" and I'm darn proud, thankyouverymuch.

Now for the help. We have the kitchen and a bathroom left to paint. We are at the bottom of our move in budget so would like to try and get one color/gallon of paint for both. I think. Maybe.

Here is the kitchen, please excuse the mess...

what color for the kitchen?

As you can see, it won't need much. Just a bit of color on top and around the cabinets & window. I was thinking a yellow, but I'm not loving that little paint card I got there in the last shot. We've already used blue in the other bathrooms, a mellow green in one bedroom, burnt orange & chocolate brown in the master and this crazy green in another bedroom...

So all I can think of is some kind of yellow...but what kind? Would a yellow work in a bathroom too? If not, what other color? Or any other color ideas? Help me!!!!

your house is beautiful! I'm so happy for you and yours.
It's so hard to tell from pictures on a computer, but I think a muted version of the yellow paint card you have there would look really nice.
Good luck!

Yes I like yellow. maybe more of a creamy yellow than you got on the sample card. I think Yellow can work in the bathroom also. (Our bathroom is yellow :))
Good luck with the painting, and congrats!!

I agree, the yellow is too yellow, I think if you're going to go in that direction it needs to be creamier, or it will look dated.

Ciria, I have a gallon of this paint in "butterfly wing." Online it looks way more brown than in person where it is a nice yellow. If you're at home depot you can pick up the card and see if you like it. Let me know and I'll give it to you. I bought it a year ago when we got our house and painted everything. It was for our bathrooms but then I decided I wasn't going to touch the bathrooms until we completely remodel them so it's just sitting unopened in the garage.
And congratulations on the house, it is beautiful.
