For the first ten+ years of our marriage we have had a forest green color in the kitchen. I have wanted to change it for a really long time, but lets face it, it's an expensive things to do! Well, when we loved here I finally broke down and went to Target and had some fun! I switched over to a burgundy color, which I LOVE!!!! However, I have this calendar that hangs on my fridge that I also love, BUT it's green!
I turned a blind eye to it for a while because they no longer make these and I couldn't find anywhere that sells them, so I didn't worry to much about it. Then I got to thinking about painting it! It's amazing what you can do with spray paint these days and how much better the spraying nozzles are!!!! I love Krylon for their sprayers. When I did a party for my daughter, I went and got a bunch of Burger King crowns and then spray painted them Gold, so they could be decorated. It was an awesome idea, but my hand/finger hurt so bad afterward. It was painful! I haven't had that problem since using Krylon paint. OK, enough of that!
Here is my plastic calendar holder and my Krylon Fusion (for plastic) Burgundy Paint.
First thing I did was carefully pry up the existing white board and cork board.
Then I started painting it.
I had to do a few coats to make sure that I got all the nooks and crannys. Then I glued the white board and cork board back on and put it back on the fridge. I love it, minus the hideous black marker that my kids put all over the cork board, but that is easily covered up with one of the many notes that will be hung on there! Here she is...it's soooo much better!
I figured while I was at it, I might as well paint my stove top covers as well. They had pictures of fall foliage on them, I know it's JULY, sad! And I also know that new ones aren't very expensive, but I figured that I had them already and I had the paint, might as well have more fun! (Have I mentioned how much I love painting, it's a sickness really!) Anyways, here they are. If my kitchen was cleaner I would take a full shot to show how it all goes together, but it's not so, oh well!
