Today there is another kitchen update! Can you still remember my last kitchen post? In it I told you how I decorate the open kitchen shelves. If not, just hop over and see what the kitchen looked like before . The open shelves were of course allowed to stay as I still like them very much. In the end we didn’t do that much and still the kitchen looks completely different …
REDESIGN THE KITCHEN – QUICKLY AND EASILY WITH BLACKBOARD PAINT
As always, it started this time with the desire for a change. New kitchen furniture was out of the question as I still like it a lot. I quickly realized that the kitchen could do with a new wall paint. Somehow I found the light wall color pretty boring now. You probably know that too, at some point you just need a change.
We then painted the kitchen with a blackboard paint, dark gray. I’ve always been a big fan of blackboard paint / blackboard paint, but I didn’t know that they were also available in different shades. Did you know?
At first it took a lot of getting used to painting the walls with the blackboard paint, because it was very thick. We really thought that the color 1. would not be enough and 2. would not be easy to paint. Fortunately we were wrong. The color was easily enough for the area and there were no stripes etc.
A total of 3 walls were painted in dark gray. Quite a lot, I know. In between I was actually afraid that it would get too dark. Of course it is now darker in the kitchen but also much nicer! The white kitchen furniture and dishes are much more effective. I also feel much more comfortable in it and that is actually always the most important thing when setting up / decorating.
Right now this is my favorite corner in the kitchen. You may already know the DIY hook rail. If not, there is a DIY guide here . It used to hang in the dining room, but I like it even better in the kitchen.
There are moments in life when you just have to say yes. Especially when it is “only” about redesigning your own four walls. After all, you only live once. In any case, I’m really happy that I dared.
Oh yes, there are also blackboard paints that you can paint over with normal wall paint. This is another plus point for me, because our walls will certainly not stay that way forever (even if I like them more than a lot at the moment).
I just love changes too much for that.
I hope my new contribution to the kitchen has inspired you a little …
