I wasn’t trying to hard to make things perfect or protect anything except the floors or appliances.I got too close to the stove only once, and found that if I wiped it up quickly enough, a damp paper towel took care of it fairly well. I kept the windows open all night despite the dip in temperatures just so the fumes wouldn’t be hanging out in the house while I got ready for work the next day. This was taken at night just before I went to bed, so I’ll try later this week to give you a better “after” shot so you can see the color and finish a little better.
So the island will be the same quartz and the pantry will get a soapstone looking laminate. The kitchen ceiling was orange from years of smoke damage; the floor was yellowed linoleum.The fridge was filthy and I found one of those lovely fingernails you’ve heard me whine so much about. During my limited time researching this product, I’d learned from user reviews that this stuff was pretty toxic and would take three full days for the paint to cure.And the countertops were caked on with so much grease and dust we had to use oven cleaner to remove it. I’d seen “countertop makeover” kits at Home Depot, but at over 0 a pop, I wasn’t ready to take the plunge. In all fairness, this painting product from the Rustoleum crew has only sixteen color options. Not only that, but the paint would not require priming if I were painting over laminate (which I was) and would stick to just about ) I found that the paint stick really came in handy on this project. ), I had read that the paint consistency would be important if the temps were going to drop lower as the paint dried (per the can’s instructions, you should only use this product when temps are between 50 and 90 degrees for three days in a row).I think I make a pretty good case for why someone would want to paint everything just for the sake of freshening up the place rather than waiting on the true demo and remodeling to begin. Maybe we haven’t covered this before, but I’m first. I found that the color separated from the tint base quite easily (I’d only bought the paint two days before painting), so stirring it up was key.
If you’re looking to make a statement with your kitchen renovation, black countertops are a perfect solution.
