Our homes go through so many changes over time. Maybe the arrival of kids means toys, toys, toys everywhere (and the inevitable ‘storage solutions’); or perhaps you’ve had a new kitchen fitted and want to update you style.
My own house goes through changes simply because I love experimenting. Rarely a week goes by when I’ve not got a pot of paint in hand and am wandering room to room planning what I’ll do next.
Whether it’s to distress a shelf, update your units or create a feature wall, you can make easy changes to any room in your home, and it often only takes a couple of hours.
Here’s one of my rooms that I can never resist giving a facelift … my kitchen. Over the last year I’ve painted the base units blue, green, red, teal and back to blue again. I love all five looks and there’s no telling what I’ll try next. I don’t opt for expensive chalk paints (I don’t find the range of colours that impressive) and instead use good ol’ emulsion. I often mix leftover colours together to achieve a desired shade.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour. After all, what’s the worse that can happen. You can just paint over it again!
