Today I learned something new and exciting:
One can pretty easily paint over ugly old tiles, with a lasting result!
This opens up a whole new avenue of ideas for our
(ever imminent) kitchen makeover.
I have been thinking about changing the kitchen since I first moved in,
over 5 years ago. But for a long while I hardly spent any time there.
Now, when Cinnamon man lives with us, things are different.
But - for our kitchen, the previous owners chose small matte tiles in a weird
apricot non-color, with random moss green leaves thrown in on some of them.
Yes, they are exactly as hideous as they sound, and every attempt
on my part to even visualize a new kitchen has been thwarted by those tiles.
We don't have the funds for an expensive remake,
and knocking down tiles have always seemed like too much work.
I would like to do as much as possible myself, and get as much change
as I can out of a couple of cans of paint. And it finally seems possible :)
As usual my color scheme is purple, gray, black and white
and these are some of the pictures I found googling for inspiration.
Now, all I have to do is find the time...
