Whatever the reason, I've been feeling the itch - more of an ache! - to change my kitchen up a bit. Now, one might think this is an occasional process, but lets be honest, we've been in this house for 9 years and this paint job represents the 5th color in the kitchen. Judge if you must. Paint is cheep :)
|After: New Greige paint on wall, |
fresh paint on shelf and frames,
and a few new accessories.
|Before: Paint color = Cookie Crumb|
After finishing up the paint, I decided a few new accessories were also in order. The blue rooster was a gag gift given to my hubby for Christmas, but I love it! And what do you do when you need a little piece of art work... you make it, of course. :)
|Step 2: Designing the pattern. |
I drew it first on a giant piece of paper then transferred it onto the wood.
|Using a simple acrylic paint, I did a soft coat so the wood grain would show through.|
