Just say yes to primer!

Finally my kitchen is done! What a nightmare .. the next time anybody asks me if I want to buy the paint with the primer mixed in I will say yes. The yellow paint my kitchen was painted previously took .. oh .. I don't know .. about four coats of white paint to cover. Yep .. I sweated my way through this one.

Before:




After:





It's not a huge change .. I just didn't want the bright yellow in there anymore. You can't really tell but the wall with the window is a different color now.

The people at Word To The Wall were kind enough to send me some custom vinyl lettering. I was sooo excited when it came. Here is hubby putting it up:





Isn't it cute? It was really easy to apply (at least the hubby said so anyway!) I got the matte sandstone color/finish.

Word To The Wall has a huge selection .. you can check them out here:


how cute would this be with Halloween right around the corner?



Love it! I can see myself becoming addicted to this stuff fast!

Now I really need to do something about this sad tap ..

  1. Painting is no easy thing! I painted some part of my house a few months back and it was so tiring and HARD!! You did a great job. The new kitchen paint looks warm and blends well with the cabinets.

  8. Looks great!!! I love that last sign too! Hysterical! I got a sign last Halloween that has two witches feet (with the lace up boots) that says - "If the shoe fits ...." Cracks me up every time I see it!
