I got the knobs painted and things dried faster than I thought they would. So here is my kitchen…
What do you know? I went through my closets and found one more roll of black and white checkered shelf liner! You didn’t forget that, did you?
Below was my first kitchen, before the boho tile decals, and you see the self liner here.
Which led me to this…
This was the second kitchen redo. I know the photo looks lopsided because I suppose nothing in this apartment is level. I can’t hardly ever get a photo that is straight.
This is the GianiGranite countertops. I got a free product kit of my choice from GianiGranite. And I chose Sicilian Sand. After the application, you apply the topcoat. I think it’s what they use on automobiles, so I imagine it will hold up.
You could say I can’t leave well enough alone. Or you can realize that I must have color.
I went on and walked all through the store, but my mind was on those place mats. I mean, if it didn’t work out, they were $1.99, and I’d have new place mats.
And so that’s how the kitchen ended up like this. I wanted to put trim around the place mats, but it really wasn’t in the budget this month.
First you roll on black primer. All of this is in the kit, including brushes and rollers. Then you have three colors to sponge on with sea sponges they send you. First there was a medium brown, then more of a gold, and finally the white.
The EAT sign is now a soft gold instead of turquoise.
And perhaps one of my favorite finds was this Melamine red and white polka dotted plate I found at Target for $1.99. Perfect to house my dish cleaning stuff.
