When I got home from work on Monday, this is what I saw on our kitchen wall:
For the next few nights I painted. And stained. And painted and stained some more. For those of you who are curious, I used General Finishes Milk paint in “Linen” for the bottom and the top is General Finishes gel stain in “Java.” I cannot say enough about these products. I have no painting experience and milk paint is the easiest thing to use. There is no prepping or priming necessary. I seriously dusted off the thing, took off the hardware and started painting! It took me about 4 coats to get the coverage that I wanted with the Linen color.
As far as the gel stain, I had purchased it for our kitchen cupboards. We haven’t gotten to that project yet, but I now know how easy this stuff is to use! (Incredibly easy!) and I love the outcome.
So…without further ado, here is our big (little project) reveal:
He also made sure that he spaced my cup hooks so that my favorite mug collection could be displayed. 🙂
And as you may notice, I did end up brushing on a little of the GF gel stain on the shelving sides. We thought it added a little more to the whole look.
And you can now find us making a cup of coffee and staring at our little station. Because it’s so cozy and we LOVE IT!
If you are thinking about a paint project, I cannot recommend GF products enough!
Have a great day!
