Tuscan Kitchen: The Reveal

by

I love how Michelle’s kitchen turned out!  The electrician came by over the weekend, and installed the new lights, and he brought that bad boy out of 1962.  I love the colors and the mix of textures…sigh

Dry paint over wallpaper.  Can you tell?  There were a few spots that bubbled, and it kept me up that night, but the paint as it dried sucked that paper right to the wall.  The next day, when I went over to finish the paneling, no bubbles!

I grabbed this at Pier One.  It is damaged, and because it has a tiny little flaw, I scored it for less than $50!  I know where the damage is, and I can’t even see it in this photo.  You can save yourself lots of money by checking the damaged area.  You might be able to fix something by just tightening the screws, or fixing a scuff with a brown magic marker.

These are plates I found at Target.  These patterns would work in a southwest kitchen, as well.  I used plate hangers to attach them to the wall.

This beauty I found at Gordman’s, and I think it matches so good with my Pier One mirror!  It fits perfectly right above the sink.

It’s cozy and the red paint made those cabinets pop!  The light fixtures add drama and character.  It’s warm and it’s a room you want to spend time in.  RIP wheat stalks and bonnets, you won’t be missed.

      Just a little paint and some elbow grease really changed how her outdated kitchen looks!

      Thank you! I used Valspar paint in Paprika. You can find Valspar at Lowe’s.
