The centerpiece of our kitchen...

Look who I found taking naps! 🐢
-

2 of our pups are snoozing in here as it's nice and cool, thanks to @tiltsmarthome blinds. #sponsored -
-
-
It used to get SO hot with the afternoon sun just heating up the house, but with these blinds I have been able to #getsmart by setting them to temperature sensitive settings!
-
-
-
They close when the temperature hits the level I selected in the app, which not only helps keep the bedrooms cooler but also my energy bill down.
-
-
-
Definitely check out @tiltsmarthome blinds if you are in the market for super easy to use, smart solar blinds!
-
-
-
And make sure to check out my stories to see the temp control settings in the app + watch how easy they are to use! -
-
-
I am thrilled with these so far and am loving them as are the younger human and furry members of the fam! #tilt

I did a quick color pop using their Plumberry kit. #overtonecolor #partner I stopped going to salons last November as my hair was fried but I seriously missed colors. Thanks to #overtone I am back baby!  Plus, it's great for my hair, I can do it at home and it's loads cheaper.  A match made in heaven. πŸ’–

And since it's been a hot minute and I'm inspired by the ladies sharing #GirlShowYoFace, it's a perfect time to share!

Pantry Update with Some Pink Action!

I am so excited to share this project with you guys!Β  I’ve been working on this over the last week and can finally share what I’ve been up to.

I was asked by Annie Sloan if I wanted to try out some of their chalk paint.Β  I was already planning to paint the kitchen and pantry so when they reached out I was beyond excited to say YES!Β  Β I have no experience with chalk paint so it was going to be a bit of a learning curve and we decided to test the waters and learn about the products by taking on a smaller part of our kitchen area, which is our pantry and bar.

Here’s our pantry and bar before….

Soo boring right?!Β  The only fun I did was the wallpaper in the pantry.Β  Otherwise the entire thing is the same dark grey stain as our kitchen cabinets.Β  I wanted to lighten it and make it more fun!

And now…

Can you see the pantry cabinets peeking out?

The bar got a 5 minute makeover when I took a kantha quilt and just stapled along the edges to attach it to the bar front!

The yellow arrow used to be on the shelf in the pantry but I brought it out to tie into the kantha quilt.

Here is looking into the pantry!Β  We did the countertops ourselves using reclaimed oak boxcar flooring when we did our kitchen reno.Β  They really pop against this paint!Β  I used Antoinette from Annie Sloan and sealed with their water based lacquer in the gloss finish.

The Antoinette is a really pretty soft pink with a hint of mauve.Β  So it doesn’t read overly pink, my husband really likes it too!

I painted the inner bar area as well.Β  The cabinet and the dividers between the beverage fridge and keg fridge.Β  (My hubs is a big homebrewer so I designed the keg area with taps for his beers!)

Ignore the mess in the bev fridge. Yikes!

Here’s a close up shot of the kantha quilt I stapled on.Β  This literally took me 5 minutes!Β  My teen son walked in just as I was finishing and said “Whoa cool!”Β  Ya’ll he NEVER says that so I was pretty excited.

Kantha quilts are handmade blankets and are a great way to bring in a pop.Β  I have a few more muted kanthas in the shop!

I swapped out the single pendant fixture for our Stanley Hotel chandy that used to live in our bedroom!Β  Why can’t a pantry have a bit of bling and pizazz right?! It gives off way more light and I LOVE it in here.

This guy is Bob the Ram, we’ve had him all over!Β  I spray painted him this seafoam color and just put him in here for a surprise of fun.

The pantry is a small space but it holds all of our non-perishables so it’s definitely important.Β  It also serves as our coffee bar so we are in here a lot.Β  The soft pink shade has made it feel a hundred times bigger and I am thrilled with the wear on these cabinets so far!

 

I’ll keep you posted on how I think the wear of the Annie Sloan lacquer and chalk paint goes, and you know with 4 kids and 4 dogs it’s going to be tested.

Next up I am planning to do the whole kitchen!Β  It’s going to be a huge project but I am really looking forward to getting to it.Β  I am massively in love with this color and the look of the cabinets.

I think it might have to wait until after school starts so I can devote more time to it but I am hoping in the next month or 2 I will have a kitchen to show you.Β  And I will break it down step by step from what I did to how it turns out!

What do you think would you ever paint your kitchen pink?Β  How about chalk paint, have you ever used it?

I always love to hear from ya so hit me up in the comments!

And don’t’ forget to hit up the subscribe box in the sidebar so you don’t miss a thang!

    I always love to see what you’ll do next. You are so brave! I have used chalk paint a lot and love it. I make my own. I painted all my plastic laminate kitchen cabinets about 2 years ago and they have held up beautifully.

      Hi! Thank you so much and that is so awesome that you make your own chalk paint! I have never used it before so this was a fun project and it’s good to hear that it’s working so well on your cabinets. I’m hoping to get to our kitchen with it and it will be a massive change for the better!
