The Kitchen: Lightening Up

November 28, 2012


Just a quick one today, but guess who is painting again? I'm in the middle of giving the kitchen a little freshen up -  now that the pool and deck are almost done, the kitchen didn't look quite right with all the black so I decided to change it.  It's something I'd been thinking of for a couple of months and last weekend I decided to just do it!  As always I underestimated the time it would take (as in, went shopping first then decided to paint...) but it will be done this weekend. It seems cleaner and brighter already!

  1. How many coats did it take out of curiosity? It's looking very fresh.... but must have been a lot of work! xx

    1. Fortunately just one wall needed the makeover and that photo was taken after 4 coats - I think 1 more will do it!

  2. Hehe!

    Was the black a pain to paint over?

    1. The hardest bit was painting around the range as there's not much room to move - only 1 wall though so not too bad :)

    1. Thanks, Tina - loved the black too but now that we look out on to the pool, the kitchen just seemed to need a lighter touch.

  4. You and your paint brush are dangerous! I'd definitely be utilising the pool today rather than painting. 38 degrees!!

  5. Oh that's so funny. I remember deciding on a whim to re-paint our staircase right before Christmas. What the? We are all crazy women - but we get results. Can't wait to see.

    1. I think sometimes the less you think about it and just do it the better the results!
