Hello, my friends!
Today I am digging deep down into the archives to share this again.
This is a post from 2013 and I'm linking to Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration.
There have been a few changes in decor since I posted this,
but in a few few weeks, I will be .....(drumroll please)....
...PAINTING MY CABINETS!
Please pray for me!
Hopefully the next photos of my kitchen will reveal lovely white cabinets!
I have always loved the look of old fashioned punched tin. I didn't know where I would get my hands on anything that would even come close except for those panels you can buy at Lowe's. I actually bought a piece to try it but it was going to be pain to cut and I would need quite a few pieces to go all the way around my counters. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm all about getting it done...as cheap as possible...and these pieces were about $20 a sheet. Well, while I was looking around at Lowe's the same day I returned that sheet I had purchased, I found this textured wallpaper. The whole roll was less than one sheet of that! Sorry, I don't have a picture of the unpainted roll...it's just...white.
It is a thick, embossed white wallpaper which comes in several patterns...and then I got a brilliant idea...spray paint, one my favorite things. First of all, I cut all the pieces that I needed, took them outside and gave them each a few coats...the more you spray, the shinier it will become. It actually dried pretty fast and then I glued it to the backsplash with wallpaper paste.
I was really very pleased with the results!
My next challenge is to give it and "older" look somehow...maybe I will try a little antiquing finish of some sort. Hmm...some Old English maybe? I'll let you know!
Thanks for stopping by!
