I got the knobs painted and things dried faster than I thought. So now my kitchen redo is complete.
Below was my first kitchen, before the boho tile decals, and you see the self liner on the wall here.
First Apartment Kitchen:
But it didn’t hold up well. The liner on the wall kept coming down. So I had to scrap that and come up with something else.
Which led me to this idea.
Second Apartment Kitchen:
This was the second kitchen redo. I know the photo looks lopsided because I suppose nothing in this apartment is level. Then, going a ways back to the little blue house.
I decoupaged the kitchen cabinets. Which led two magazines to my door to feature the kitchen. So back to my current kitchen, this is the third redo in less than two years.
Using GianiGranite Counter Top Kits:
This is the GianiGranite countertops. I got a free product kit of my choice from GianiGranite. After all the detailed applications, you apply the topcoat.
Giving The Cabinet Doors Personality:
I’d been in Michaels and Target. I’d gone through Marshalls. All these stores are in the same shopping center.
And as I was walking down an aisle in Bed Bath & Beyond, I passed these place mats. I went on by, then found myself backing up. The place mats were $1.99 each.
Then I strolled through the kitchen section and saw these wooden spoons, etc. They were in a net bag, and I bought four bags, at $5.99 a bag.
I painted the brown knobs I purchased for another kitchen renovation black. And painted them using the trick you see above.
How to paint knobs all at once:
First you find a cardboard box. You poke holes in the cardboard, put a screw underneath and screw it into the knob on top. Then spray paint.
Here is the valance given to me by Primitive Star Quilt Shop. They’re good quality, and I love that they’re lined.
When using the GianiGranite kit, first you roll on black primer. Then you have three colors to sponge on with the sea sponges they send you. You keep going while it’s wet, sponging on each color.
The EAT sign is now a soft gold instead of turquoise.
So there you have it. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But I like things to be a little unique.
The place mats are simply nailed on the cabinet doors with short nails, as were the wooden spoons. They can easily be taken down if need be.
