Category Archives: Painting
A while ago I shared my kitchen redo but since then we have made a few changes. When we first moved into this house I knew the kitchen needed a facelift. But we are renting and because of that we only wanted to invest a little bit of money. With a little bit of elbow grease we turned this kitchen into something we could be proud of.
The kitchen started out with red walls and yellow countertops. The cabinets were in ok shape but I wanted to lighten it up a bit. Paint makes all the difference in the world.
Here are a few more of the before pictures.
We had our own appliances that we moved into the space. We got a great deal from The Sears Outlet. I love them so much! We painted the cabinets white and if you need some help with a painting project here, here, here, here, and here, are a few of our tips. We thought about getting butcher block counter tops from Ikea but we ended up getting so lucky and got some countertop from a local company that we called in a favor for. If you want cheap countertops, have you seen that you can PAINT YOUR EXISTING ONES. If any of you have used it I would love to hear what you think about!
We did a few more things, Here is the break down of the cost…
I painted my chevron wall about a year ago and I loved it. But I was ready for a change. I have changed this wall three times in the last month.
It started like this…
Then I painted it a mint color…
Then I was going to do the stripe with gold glitter…. I used the Silhouette Double Sided Adhesive Paper
and I used cheap gold glitter from Walmart and I did not do much when I realized,
#1 it would take forever to do #2 the gold glitter was a little too much
If the zig zag would have been smaller then I would have done it. It worked perfectly.
But this is how it ended up…
I am VERY VERY happy with the navy stripe!!! I love it, and I love all the little items add to the dresser, including my lamps that I taped off and painted the bases with gold spray paint.
What do you think?! Which one is your favorite…. I really would love to know
