    I am in the middle of painting my beadboard in my kitchen.It was the usual white when we bought the house almost 5 years ago. I used green as The base, then I used beige and white dry brushing in strokes to make it look Rustic antique. 1st and 2nd picture the walls are done the 3rd picture is the original white, and the 4th picture I am halfway done. I just need to add the beige and white dry brush. Cabinets will stay white, the dropples will be spray painted from brushed nickel to bronze, and the countertops on next with epoxy. I was lucky enough because I had paint left over from all of the rooms that I've done so I just used what I had. All I bought were new rollers and different widths of paint brushes. Good luck with your project

    There are many ways to antique walls. Not sure what kind of antiquing u want? There is the painted kind as well as the kind you can just choose that I put in my other house. It is paneling. It is maintenance free. All u do is measure, make sure your design matches and decide do you want trim or not. I had it in my dining room and living room at my other house. Listen, make sure if u go the paneling way that you line up your seams. That way, it looks very professional.
