We’ve been doing a Summer DIY Project that has involved this Behr wonder-paint. See all posts HERE!
The kitchen in our little white house has been wallpapered three times. Twice by me. When we took down the wallpaper and decided to paint I chose a bold red…
After a few years I couldn’t take all the energy from that red paint. I love and adore red in other people’s houses, that’s why I chose it, but I can’t live day in day out with red on the walls. It made me nervous!
So last Fall I set out to cover my red…this was before I discovered you-know-what. (Behr Ultra Paint with Primer)
I primed and primed and then I painted. I used a BIG name (expensive) paint which will not be named here, but it did NOT cover well, even after 2 coats of primer! Soooo I painted and painted some more. Sigh.
It was ridiculous I tell ya.
(Did you understand that I covered my red kitchen with new paint in September 2009? Ok…just making certain.)
Here’s the finished product…which looked well-enough…
Have you ever met anyone who can’t seem to leave well-enough alone?
Hi, I’m Robin and I can’t seem to leave well-enough alone.
When The Husband gave me the go-ahead to paint the den wainscoting and walls I knew I’d include the kitchen in my project. Although I love warm Autumn colors, I’ve been compelled of late to lighten my tiny world…
When I told The Husband I wanted to paint the kitchen, the conversation went something like this…
The Husband: “Didn’t you just paint the kitchen?”
Me: “No. What makes you think that?”
I dove right in.
I knew I’d use the miracle paint Behr Ultra because I thought I’d rather not spend 2 days in the kitchen painting the walls over and over…
The walls took half a day.
I kid you not. Easy-breezy!
Are you beginning to understand why my decorating heart belongs to Behr Ultra Paint with Primer?
This should be the end of this itty-bitty story, but alas, as most of my projects go, the wall project quickly led to a bigger project…
Painting the kitchen cabinets, trim and doors! I’ll Show you the cabinets tomorrow!
