Kitchen revamp reveal: PARAPaints Plantain Chips PF52
It’s done! Our entire open concept kitchen/dining room is now a fabulously bright and cheery yellow, PARA Paints’ colour of the year Plantain Chips PF52 ! This project took a lot longer than I would ideally like…but that’s life! Instead of being home painting, I was either eating alligator for the first time in Atlanta or falling in love with watermelon mojitos in Mexico, so really I’m okay with how long it took.:)
The walls started out an icky sort of beige-y colour and the trim was not much better. (See all the before photos here.) When just the dining room was done it really highlighted how ugly the beige was that was on the walls, so I was grateful this past weekend to be able to finally cover it up.
To complete the project all the holes in the walls were filled (and there were many!), all the trim and one door was sanded down, everything got at least one coat of white primer, and then the walls got two coats of PARA Paints Plantain Chips PF52 and the trim and door got three coats of PARA Paints Jo Jo Whitewash PF17.
One of my favourite changes (which I really can’t believe how simple it was!) was painting the backsplash with the same white as the trim & door. It brightens up the counter area quite a bit, which I love.
Huge thanks to PARA Paints for providing the paint for this project. Next up the dining room chairs get their make-over: fresh paint & fabric!
Update: I painted it…AGAIN:) See the re-re-vamp here.
