Little Touch of Happy Yellow

It may sound odd, but this is the first time I have painted a color on my walls in my home! My husband has been opposed to me painting walls colors. He's all about white walls for some reason. I've gotten used to that idea, although at first I was a bit shocked that he even had an opinion on the matter. Growing up, my dad never cared, at least I never saw him disliking all my mom's decorating and painting. 
Anyway, back to my color! Just a little space, but I love the color it brings to my ever-improving kitchen!

I mixed my own color of yellow using two paints I already had. One was Clarks & Kensington Spun Gold (flat) from a free paint Saturday at Ace a while back. The other was the cabinet color (Royal Southern Plantation, satin finish). I tested out the color on a little spot for a day (see below) and then ended up adding a lot more of the off-white to ease it up a bit. I didn't want it too overbearing. 
I am really enjoying it! 

Next up... installing the knobs and pulls that I purchased!
