Here are some before and after shots of the Kitchen and Dining room. Keep in mind two things: the dining room still needs one more coat of paint and the kitchen color is NOT what we were hoping it was going to be. As of this moment, both Steve and I are unsure if we like it, but (as the painter) we're gonna stick it out for a bit to see if it grows on us. I'm not interesting in painting that kitchen again - smallest room to paint, but the biggest pain in the ass (lots to pull out, plates to take off, counter to clear, ugh.)

We had to change the light in the kitchen as well. There is a huge florescent fixture in there and it had super bright white lights - it made the color look awful. Steve went and bought some soft white light and it really helped the look (all photos were taken with the new light bulbs). Again, we're unsure if we like the color in there.
On to the dining room:

So that's what I spent all day doing yesterday.
Now I have to get ready to drink all afternoon and night - Steve's work party is tonight... Please GOD let me survive this!
