The painted kitchen

Once upon a time, our kitchen looked like this:
(Notice the shorter counter.)

Then we painted it yellow and added the extra cabinets.

Then we painted it "blue steel" (which really looked purplish) and added the trim and new appliances.

Now is is gray. Logan asked me why I didn't paint the kitchen. He didn't notice the change.
Which is odd because they really are different colors, but it is hard to notice.

I like it 100% better than the previous color.

Here is a better idea of what the 2 colors look like side by side.

Top is Behr Anonymous
Bottom is Glidden Blue Steel

Looks good! I've been trying to convince Matt that we need to paint the entire house gray. It's my fave. I've found the perfect shade and everything. He likes the color, just not the painting part.
