The kitchen makeover one room challenge week 2 is already here, yikes! I haven’t done much physical work in the room yet because I was hosting Easter lunch with my family and I didn’t think that a displaced kitchen would be fun for anyone.
I did place some orders for some of my supplies. I decided on the paint and cabinet hardware! I do have a few paint samples on my cabinets that my kids haven’t even noticed yet. That should give you a good idea that around our house, you are always expecting change and you just roll with it.
I mentioned in my Week 1 Post that I would be painting the cabinets black and white. The actual colors are called Carbon and Primitive. Instead of white I decided on a soft gray color and primitive was perfect. The paint is Americana Chalky finish paint that I love and have used it on many projects including my grain sack inspired bench makeover, a midcentury modern dresser, and painted pumpkins. My friends at DecoArt are giving me the paint!
The hardware is very exciting for me. I’m stepping it up a little with these Hickory Hardware Studio Collection Veneti Bronze pulls and knobs. The reason I am super excited is because I won a contest with Hickory Hardware and was awarded new hardware for any room in my home! My Ikea Rast Hack Rolling Craft Cart was voted in the top three of the contest and the top three finishers won! YAY!!!
Now I really need to get busy painting the cabinets! As soon as my paint comes in the mail.
We will start pulling off the chair rail trim around the breakfast area in order to add some planking to the wall. Then our BIG goal is to get rid of the table and build and island that will function both as a table and work surface. We have people over often and I want to be able to have everyone hang out together. The island would be a big help with this.
