Im not sure I consider this really a "make over", 5 years ago I painted and wallpapered and really loved it at the time! I found the neatest punched tin "look" wallpaper from USAWallpaper and just HAD TO HAVE IT! Then I decided I needed to change out the border as well. The wallpaper came, I took a sample and picked out my paint colors. This was in March if this year. I painted and put up the wallpaper, waiting for the border. It was on backorder for the longest time and FINALLY came in June, I noticed the border did not match the wallcolor, so I had to think about redoing the walls a different color. I recently found the color and was a bit hesitant because it is alot darker than Im used to. I was also thinking of painting my cupboards black and distressing them a little.
Yesterday, just out of the blue I decided to start painting the walls and get the border up. I got the bottom cupboards painted last night at 10pm. Once I got started I didnt want to stop!
Here are a few pictures of what Ive got done so far. I still have a 2nd coat to do on the top cupboards and distressing AND get the doors back on.
New color - Muddlement - I LOVE IT!
Cupboards - from red to black (overlook the mess inside)
No more red - I wasnt too sure about this and actually tried black on bottom and red on top and it just didnt go to well.
