I’ve yet another kitchen redo in progress going on in my apartment this week.
I have applied the GianiGranite application to my kitchen countertops. And now I am working on the top coats.
As soon as I started applying it, I worried that the boho-style back splash was going to work with the GianiGranite paint kit.
I just wasn’t liking a granite look with the colorful bohemian back splash tiles. Which led to me taking the decals down.
Then I went to Lowes to pick up paint samples and trim.
Deciding On The Paint To Paint The Walls:
I must decide on the paint color for the wall between the counter top and the cabinets.
The painted wall will replace the colorful decals I had decoupaged on to the backsplash.
Now I wish I would have painted the walls, and then applied my GianiGranite application to the counter tops. Because I run the risk of getting paint spatters on my countertops.
But it couldn’t be avoided. I will just have to cover the counters and be very careful.
I’ve decided to pay the apartment maintenance guys to add the trim. I don’t have the machinery or tools to get it to look right.
Across the kitchen from this area I’m working on is my big cart from World Market. And above that is the red cupboard from the antique mall.
So somehow I’ve got to get these two looks to blend and look okay together. I’ve got my thinking cap on and I’m spinning with ideas.
The granite look seems to call for a more sedate backdrop. And so I’m winging it. Deciding as I go along.
A Different Look Than My First Two Kitchen Redos:
It will certainly be much different than my first two kitchen redos. I had not planned on taking on yet another kitchen project. But as you know, one thing leads to yet another.

In yet another kitchen redo in progress, I realize that I haven’t even lived here two years! In April it will be two years, as I moved here in 2014.
Who could have imagined redoing the kitchen three times in less than two years? But somehow that’s exactly what happened.
