Back in September of 2016, we purchased a property that had a little old house on it. The house was built around 1856.
It is a tiny little house- right around 1,000 sq ft. It was in pretty poor condition and hadn’t had any work done since the 6th layer of linoleum went on the floor back in the 1950’s.
The Purple Painted Lady® is getting ready to paint the upcycled wood cabinets in the kitchen.
We don’t plan on having any upper cabinets, instead we will have white tile with barn wood floating shelves and white counter tops.
This custom blue shown is made of 1 part Greek Blue to 1.5 parts to Aubusson Blue Chalk Paint®.
Then we used clear wax and black wax. I love this sample cabinet!
Tomorrow, January 14th is …….. Second Saturdays at Village Gate (January 14, 2017) hosted by The Purple Painted Lady at 274 Goodman St North, Rochester between 10 and 5. We will line the hallways with artists, bakers and vendors.
SAVE THE DATE of Upcoming Second Saturdays!
**ALSO- we have a FREE KITCHEN CABINET Q&A at from NOON til 1pm on Saturday, January 14th!!! Bring a cabinet door from your kitchen and we can discuss options and techniques with you!
Winter is here and so are the days of static electricity and dryness. This not only causes us to get a shock when we slide our feet across a carpet, but we get that dry tight skin feeling…and also……. “I’ve painted my kitchen cabinets and now the paint has cracked around the center panel.” Here is a post to understand why this happens and how to help prevent it!
