Ginger Snap Crafts: Kitchen Updates with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paints

Kitchen Updates with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paints

This post is brought to you by DecoArt.

Hello! As most of you know (if you follow me on facebook or instagram) we have had more than our fair share of snow days lately! Whew! ;) That means lots of extra time hanging around the house. ;) I’ve been working super hard in my kitchen getting it all organized, deep cleaned & making a few updates that made a big difference! Paint is always my go to when I want some quick changes around my house. So first I repainted the walls in my kitchen a much lighter color, & then I grabbed some of the brand new Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint to add some fun accents. So keep reading to see what I did & to find out where you can pick up some of this brand new paint! :)

For my kitchen projects I used the Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Romance & Carbon colors. I also used the Crème Wax over the top of the paint to help give it a more durable finish. I LOVE that this paint comes in so many colors! (Check them all out below!) Pastels & rich dark colors are all available. Right now you can find this paint exclusively at The Home Depot.

The first project I did for my kitchen was to make this huge sign to hang over my kitchen window. I used the Americana Chalky Finish paint in carbon to makeover this sign that has been in my attic forever. ha! I just gave it a couple of coats of paint, distressed the edges with sandpaper & then added the vinyl lettering. Do you remember my really long piece of vinyl? Yep, this was it! ;)

For my next project I grabbed this stool from the garage. It had seen better days! haha! I had used it when I painted my kitchen so it had drips of paint all over it! So I cleaned it up with a rag, & it was ready to paint. With the new chalky finish paint you don’t need to do much prep work. :)

I put 2 coats of the romance chalky finish paint letting the paint dry 2 hours between coats.

After it was dried I used sandpaper again to distress the edges really well. Then I added some vinyl on the top. What a difference paint can make! ;)
