Hi everyone, my brother and sister-in-law loved hearing all your sweet comments about their new “old” place (click HERE if you missed it).
Today I have another post for you about a change that I made to our house before I left for Germany.
I have been wanting to change the silver color of the back kitchen wall for a while now. Not because I couldn’t stand it anymore but because the wall was damaged after years of use and the Ralph Lauren metallics (which I loved by the way) aren’t being sold at Home Depot anymore.
Remember this wall with my plates? (HERE is the tutorial for the DIY Pierro Fornasetti plates)
So when I was approached by Valspar to see if I wanted to try out their new Valspar Reserve paint, I jumped on it.
(This is not a sponsored post. I was given the paint for review and I only share things with you that I love. I stand behind it 100%)
I decided to try Mint Whisper 5008-7A and squeezed in a painting project right after I got back from the beach and a day before I left for Haven.
My hubby told me I was nuts but I got it all done and I have to say that the paint made it very easy to cover the dark silver since it is one-coat paint and primer. I’m always glad when I don’t need to prime something.
And the fact that it’s stain and scrub resistant makes it perfect for our kitchen.
You can see the paint’s coverage in the next photos:
One coat already covered really well:
And after two I was done!
(In case you are wondering what sink I bought, I bought THIS extra deep one with THIS sink basket strainer and also recently replaced the faucet with THIS one in the above photo. The combo has worked really well for us. I also bought my kitchen pendant HERE)
Do you guys spy all the new West Elm plates that I added to the wall and mentioned in the headline?
I have a ton of mint right now which I love BUT I might change my mind by Christmas 😉 You guys know me, right? Let’s see!
Friday I have another pet post coming up and Monday I have another Germany post with a ton of photos. So stop back!
