We moved into our brand spanking new home Fall of ’07. Seeing it all in its new state, makes you want to keep it that way, but normal wear and tear is bound to happen so a little face lift is needed every now and then.
Our kitchen is a high traffic area of the home, and we were noticing lots of nicks and scratches along the corners and lots of scuff marks to go with them. The scuffs sometimes came off with a damp cloth or magic eraser, but a lot of the time they’d take the paint with it leaving uneven walls.
So although we loved our blue kitchen we decided it was time for a paint makeover. We’d get rid of the flat blue, and replace it with a pearl medium grey. Painting over our 6 years of wear, and updating the look along the way. What do you think? You likey?
The first thing we did was paint over the molding which was a normal gloss, to a high gloss. This really makes the molding ‘pop’, and gives it more definition.
On these photos, look at the very top, even from a distance the gloss is showing, and looks a lot cleaner.
For under $100, and a weekend of labor our kitchen and dinning area is ready for another 6 years of fun. We love the new look, it feels so much fresher, cleaner and more durable, but still like home.
