Great use of color and such a nice surprise to see familiar faces on a site I frequent. I'm also a fan of that yellow painting. Makes me miss Texas.

The flooring was purchased at Lowe's (probably available at home depot as well). The cabinet color wasn't what I was originally going for, but it quickly grew on me and I think looks better in person, especially with natural light. (California Paints DE5753) The hardware on the cabinets was put in very hot water and after 15 minutes the paint peeled off easily. It appeared to be latex paint which made it easy to remove. Here's where the idea came from: http://manhattan-nest.com/2011/11/03/black-doors/. And the before picture was from the day I moved in. That explains the un-lived-in feel. Thanks!

I've had good results using soggy damp espresso grounds. I just rubbed them on with my hands and got a nice rich shade of brown.

The American front lawn is one of the worst inventions I can think of. All the water resources and chemicals that are needed to keep these pointless patches of grass going is tragic. Put something else in its place like native plants, gravel, mulch, etc.
