The Little Lake Cottage - Painted Windowsill DIY

Looking to add an unexpected pop of color to any room in your house? Here is our super easy, fun DIY, that added an unexpected pop of color to our space.

I searched for awhile for the perfect blue and landed on a beautiful turqoise by Benjamin Moore called Wythe Blue. I love the color, its so refreshing and adds serious coastal vibes to the kitchen.

Paint Like A Pro

Here is a few tips and tricks to paint a room like a pro. In addition to those tips, here is my personal experience and suggestions for the Cabinet Enamel Paint...

Instructions and Advice

  • Wipe down the surface you want to paint and allow time to dry.
  • Use a pieces of sand paper to sand any existinghigh spots.
  • Tape off your space.
  • Allow time to dry in between coats.
  • Work quickly and consistently with the paint. We noticed the paint started to dry quickly in the brush. So it was important to keep the project going so the brush didn't get clogged up
  • If you are painting over an existing semi-gloss or glossed surface, realize that the paint will behave differently then paint on an unfinished surface.
  • Our project required two coats, darker finishes may require additional coats.

    Love it! Really love the color of the cabinets. Do you what kind of cabinets and color these are? Looking to remodel our kitchen and this would look great

      The cabinets look to be Maple. Home Depot, Lowe's, and any cabinet company in your area will carry similar versions of these.

    This would work well on PVC window frames I'm guessing?

    Is that back splash a set or were the pieces individually selected?
