Paint makes everything better!

My entire house was painted with the dull, off-white, FLAT painter's paint when we moved in.  I have painted every room in the house now except my own.  But there are still the little things to paint that get on my nerves.  One being the inside of my pantry.  Normally this would not seem like a big deal but this is what it looked like when we moved in!

Gross!!!! And this was AFTER I cleaned it!
Needless to say, I really wanted to paint it but it was one of those things that got pushed to the back burner to do when I had "more time". 
The other night I went searching through my containers of leftover paint to try to find a color that would work.  Lime green or blue were not on the top of my list!
I ended up finding the color I recently painted our office (pics of that to come later).  My husband is a huge 49er fan and I promised him that if we ever had four rooms, I would make one a 49er room.  As hard as it was not to take over and make everything pink and shabby chic, I kept my promise and painted the walls a color called Kenya.
I had plenty to use and bonus, the color actually works well with my kitchen.
Ahhhh, that's much better!!!
It never ceases to amaze me what you can do with a can of paint and 45 minutes!
