Today I have another post for you about a change that I made to our house before I left for Germany.
I have been wanting to change the silver color of the back kitchen wall for a while now. Not because I couldn't stand it anymore but because the wall was damaged after years of use and the Ralph Lauren metallics (which I loved by the way) aren't being sold at Home Depot anymore.
Remember this wall with my plates?
So when I was approached by Valspar to see if I wanted to try out their new Valspar Reserve paint, I jumped on it.
I decided to try 5008-7A Mint Whisper and squeezed in a painting project right after I got back from the beach and a day before I left for Haven.
My hubby told me I was nuts but I got it all done and I have to say that the paint made it very easy to cover the dark silver since it is one-coat paint and primer. I'm always glad when I don't need to prime something.
And the fact that it is dirt and mildew resistant makes it perfect for our kitchen.
You can see the paint's coverage in the next photos:
One coat already covered really well:
And after two I was done!
Do you guys spy all the new West Elm plates that I added to the wall and mentioned in the headline?
I have a ton of mint right now which I love BUT I might change my mind by Christmas ;) You guys know me, right? Let's see!
Friday I have another pet post coming up and Monday I have another Germany post with a ton of photos. So stop back!
