Bold Kitchens for 2016

2016 is off to the races and we have clients going bold! Some of you may remember that I created a winning color for the 2015 General Finishes paint contest, called Galapagos Blue. Why Galapagos Blue? Because its teal and Galapagos is super fun to say. That's why :) 

Anyway, I thought I would share where some of our clients heads are at. Classic kitchens are always fun but so are pops of color and I love being brave! 

In December we tackled Laura's kitchen in Holiday Red from General Finishes and did a black glaze over top it to turn it down! We added the beadboard and crown moulding too! So fun, Right?

Next up, Is none other than Galapagos Blue!!! In this particular kitchen we glazed over the paint with pitch black glaze from General Finishes!

We even have video so you can see it in all its glory! 

It is literally heaven! And, I am even more excited because I have a pop of Galapagos going in my own kitchen right now!

I think 2016 is all about doing your home for YOU. Doing what YOU Love. I think people are starting to realize that people will buy your home because they love it or with plans to change it. Whether you have oak, espresso, black ,white, or BLUE cabinets you won't make everyone happy so YOU might as well love it!!

 Want to see more??? Follow us on facebook!

What do you think!??!?!

 I have a ton of tutorials coming your way soon so stay tuned! If you want them emailed to you, sign up here! I hope this encouraged you to go bold!

Love the red kitchen. I live in an older mobile home and have wanted to do something with the whole place I think my kitchen is going to be red like this since I already have a red microwave and will be purchasing other red appliances as I can afford them.

I also like the Galapagos Blue (yes, it IS a fun word to say) for the wooden slats on an older wrought iron sided bench.

Thank you everyone! Since we created the paint with General FInsihes colors they actually produce it in gallons for us and we have permission to rebottle.

Or you can ask a retailer near you to order a gallon for you!
