Hello people! How are we all?
Has our kitchen moved on or moved back a step?
Well, firstly we should say thanks to Johnstones Paint for sorting us out some Washable Duck Egg Blue Paint. This stuff is great and exactly what we had chosen. I’m not a decorating expert, I leave that to my Dad who is actually a painter and decorator, but we slapped the paint on the walls and it did the job well.
I guess I should get you to read Part One first so you can keep up… I mean it’s slow paced so no rush :/
Oh and we made a video this time too. I’d say it’s a little more entertaining than watching paint dry, but I’ll warn you there is paint involved > I Wish We Hadn’t Done This Now!
Right, now all that’s out the way I’ll tell you now that I think the kitchen has both moved forward and taken a step back. It’s taken a step back in terms of painting the whole thing Duck Egg was a waste of time, however it has sparked a new and better idea so not a complete waste.
We slapped the paint on the walls and doors and cupboards and windows… and everywhere else it shouldn’t have got! After two coats we left it to dry overnight, woke up in the morning and that’s when it hit us. We need to start again.
There’s nothing wrong with the paint, it’s purely the accessories we’ve seemed to accumulate in a short space of time that just don’t match! Everything is Black with Red and then adding in the dark wooden cupboard doors it just doesn’t go. We’ve left it a couple of days and are now going to blank canvas the whole kitchen, WHITE! I know, it’s a risky colour for a kitchen but we’re doing it anyway. It’ll be Johnstone’s washable paint too, just in white!
So in Part Three I hope to have an update saying the kitchen walls are now all white and we’ll work from there.
We’re looking at putting up some canvases with flowers to add to the hint or red etc but we’re still undecided on what to do with the cupboard doors… Do we go shabby chic white, leaving a bit of dark wood coming through, or is that too much white?
Also, massive shout-out to Amtech who sent over some tools to help with those little DIY task. You’ll see more in the video of Amtech. They provided the paint brushes which were very good, the paint roller and tray and also an awesome little battery powered screw driver, I love it!
So Johnstones and Amtech have done their bit, we now need YOU!
Design ideas for White, Black and Red are NEEDED! What do we do with these cupboard doors?
