Wall Makeover...B/c I've got Time on my Hands

Yes...I did create more hours in the day so I can accomplish many projects....
(care to join me?)
from canning, to cookie decorating....to ice cream making .....to now painting walls

Oddly enough it was almost a year ago today that I painted other walls in the house. I realized I had some leftover paints and glazes from last year and thought....heck let's go for it.

Hubs and I are adding some extra cabinets in the kitchen for extra storage space and I thought I might as well make the wall behind it look bea-u-ti-ful first.

Base coat "corkboard"
glaze "mocha"

First do a couple of coats of your base coat. Sadly there goes my menu board and Lily's new chalk wall

Finished base coat. Hubs actually would like this color on the wall, but a bit darker. (we love the rustic theme)

Now on to your glaze. I like to sponge it on in sections

and then wipe off with a paper towel to the desired look you are looking for

(love my blue gloves? I use them for everything from cutting chicken...onions...trash can clean up...to glazing)

and then viola....
