Our new house needed a kitchen "place"-lift.
Time: 8 Hours Cost: $250 Difficulty: Easy
We just moved to Florida from up north. I wanted our new home to be light and airy. I used Coastal Colors "Steel My Heart" "Summers Fog" "AHA" "Sea Spray" and "Rachael". I love the travel/Davey Joans Locker/Tommy Bahama Look, but I also like to change up color frequently. So with these tones it alows me to add pops of any color I feel...teal, coral, blue...even yellow.
When we moved into the house it was very dark and traditional. I had enough of that up north and need a lighter feeling. The cabinets were in poor shape and afer we sell our house up north we will do a whole new kitchen, but this was a fun quick fix. Since I do this for a living it was easy and I had all the supplies. The counters were faux granite and easy to paint over with Coastal Colors Beach Chic Paint and their sealer Liquid Steel. I wanted the center island to pop out as a separate piece of furniture. (notice the pantry doors on left)
Voila! My Coastal Colors Kitchen. The back splash I just followed the pattern that was there with different shades of the Coastal Colors "gray-ieges" and sanded and sealed with Liquid Steel. Added my touch of art work on the top.
The center island now looks like a vintage server I may have picked up on the side of the road. A change of knobs really topped it off. She looks like she'd been sitting in an old ship.
I took the boring button knobs off pantry door and created these and hung twine tassels and seashells.
