Been Jammin' More

We made a small change in our kitchen that made an enormous difference. Here are the before and after photos. The blue stripe in the first one is painter's tape, but really, do you even see it with that border in the picture? And don't even ask about the valances that were there. Let's just say they went with the border. So after the amount of effort it took to remove the bathroom wallpaper, we decided that the best course of action would be to paint the border into one big stripe. The good folks at Benjamin Moore Lost Mountain Paint helped us invent this color. They were very helpful, keeping the store open late when they knew we were on our way, remixing the color when it didn't work the first time (gratis), and when we left the paint there the owner tried to find our address or phone number to bring it home to us. That's why we love that store.
