Now that our PureWow video is out (see it here!) I thought I would share some easy/colorful updates we did in the kitchen. I’m still a ways off from doing a proper kitchen remodel, but I was sick with living with an ugly-unfinished mess in the meanwhile. So we whipped out some tape, some paint and re-hung some shelves and now I’ll be good to go for a few months.
Here is the embarrassing BEFORE. We lived in this state for SO many months. Random pink paint swatch. Two shelves taken down to accommodate the new-to-us larger fridge. (A cast-off from a client who upgraded!) The dishwasher was another client acquisition and the maple wood panel stood out like a sore thumb. Random stuff clogging up the shelves and an array of mess in the open cabinet over the fridge added to the disorder.
Once I learned PureWow would be visiting my home and filming it I had a fire under my ass the pull this corner together. I was about to be gifted a Delta Trinsic faucet and I there was no way I could show it next to this sad mess.
So we made a To-Do list and went to work sprucing up the kitchen.
1. Paint wall behind sink. Something colorful and geometric.
2. Re-Hang shelves. We had to cut them narrower to fit next to the fridge.
3. Paint dishwasher panel to match cabinets.
4. Make and Hang door for cabinet above fridge.
After just one week of manic work, the space turned into this…
It’s bold, playful and best of all not-permanent!
I love how the Pink striped wall turned out.
Pink was a no brainer for me for this wall because …
A) I love pink and blue together
B) My gold accents and faucet POP brilliantly off the pink wall
C) It’s just paint! Why the hell not?
Now I’m not an artsy person at all. Seriously, I can’t draw a straight line. So how did I pull off this relatively easy DIY? Keep reading after the jump for my step by step process.
