Here is the color I painted over the nightmare with. My mother-in-law hates it and I love it.
Here is the before. Kind of a blurry picture, but notice how cluttered it looks. The old fridge is now in the garage. The kitchen is a pretty small room considering how much my mother-in-law likes to bake. They remodeled it in 1976 and I would have done something different with the kitchen. The doorway on the left goes out to the entry way. The door on the other side of the fridge is the bathroom. It is not functionally correct but I'll live with it.
Here is the after. Notice the table is turned the other way. It really opened it up and helps it flow a little better.
I wanted to show you an upclose look at my red curtain. It has tiny blue flowers on it so it ties in with the wall color. I really liked this fabric so my mom made curtains for the living room out of that material. I will show you the living room next.
