A VINTAGE STYLE KITCHEN MAKEOVER WITH A TWIST OF FUN!

Image
Come on in! I would love to share my kitchen makeover. Wish I could offer you a sweet tea and a comfy seat!, just made some with fresh mint from the garden. Anyway about three years ago I had painted the kitchen  Teal Lagoon by Glidden......time for a change!



 See ya later Teal Lagoon it been nice while it lasted........... Covering with some Glidden county White.
Too dark for a room that does not get any natural direct sunlight.
 Love the Country White it has a primer already in it! 4.50 on the clearance paints
This is accent color , I bought this gallon off the Opps counter. A mere 5.00

 I used the red, red wine color for the countertops and the soffits above the cabinets. It is marvelous paint rich and thick and covers well. I used Minwax clear brushing Laquer over the paint on the counters. I have to say this stuff is fabulous, it dries in a jiffy to a clear hard coat .....so far water wipes up well and its taken regular abuse from a full service kitchen that preps 3 meals plus …

A BATHROOM MAKEOVER THATS BEING CALLED THE HAPPY BATHROOM

Hi here, come on in! I have been busy trying to get all things to my liking. The guest bathroom has been crying out for help for some time it was a tired brownish color with no personality. If you had read a recent past post I had said that I would share the real power of paint . With this makeover I used a bright hue that was brought to life using a bit of Montego Bay mixed with a whole lot of country white.

Oh my..........not good. You can see where I added the thin strip of tape that would evenly divide the top and bottom. Cause I have big plans that include a certain technique.........
So this is the old tired brownish bathroom so in need of help.............
 I was going for the old farm house style, bead board, painted /stenciled wood floor, and my favorite greenish bluish devine color.
 I used a cabinet door from a vintage piece that could not go anymore so I salvaged the doors.
 So are you thinking that I put up real bead board???  huh its simply a faux painting technique, So…
