The kitchen walls were painted a shade of green that I did not care for at all. It looked sickly to me.
As far as the rest of the kitchen goes, it was already beautiful and updated when we bought the house. The cabinets are solid maple, and I love the granite counter tops.
Since there isn't a pantry in the kitchen, I store all my dry foods in this wall of cabinets. There is plenty of storage space even without a designated pantry. Some of the cupboards are still mostly empty. ha
I will also add some panels or valances to the windows sometime in the future. But for now, I like them this way. ;-)
