Finished Wall

Yesterday I was lucky enough that I didn't have to go into work (yeah), so I grabbed my daughter and we started painting the hardboard planks that I put up on Saturday!

We primed it with about two coats of Kilz.


Then I finished up with the Behr's paint-in-primer "Crisp Linen White"! Even though it had primer it in it still took about two coats and some touch ups here and there. It is a nice paint but you still need primer especially if you are painting white over dark wood.

I think that I am going to paint the hutch the color that is on the door, it is a little less purple than the "Sharky Gray", and it reminds me of the color of driftwood, but who knows, I seem to change my mind a lot!


Anyway, I am REALLY happy how it turned out!! It really gives my kitchen that cozy cottage look that I was hoping for!

Please excuse the mess, it seems that I make little piles by sorting through big piles to make myself think that I am cleaning up!

The wall looks wonderful, Michelle! I'm sure whatever color you choose for the hutch will be just right!

Oh Michelle, This looks beautiful! I love it. It looks like so much work... I cannot believe how quickly you did it. I want to do this on the wall behind my bed so badly! Great job. You really should link to this up a few linky parties. It is amazing!

Beautiful transformation :)

Great job. I am wondering how did you get those boards on the wall. glue or nails? and how long did it take. It looks really really great!

What a great architectural addition! I'm putting your wall in the PoPP Spotlight on Saturday.

That kitchen wall is fantastic. I'm going to be redoing my kitchen in the near future. I might try this on at least one wall! I am a new follower!

I see you live in Michigan. We live on the east side near Alpena. Isn't this change in weather something? From wring wet sweating to wearing sweats the next day!
