When we visited my brother Alan last summer, he asked us for some ideas to spruce up his cabin in Strawberry, AZ. I picked out paint colors and he fixed up the bathroom on his own. This trip we planned to update his kitchen in 3 days. Skip and I love this stuff!
He sent me some pictures and we did some planning ahead of time. I have to say that I was a little skeptical that we could pull this off.
On day 2 we hung the cabinet doors after Skip installed new hardware. Alan and I did a faux finish on the countertops to make them look like granite. The Giani paint kit was very easy to do and came out better than I expected. We applied 3 different colors over the black base coat using crumpled plastic bags. Then we used small brushes to paint veins. The last coat was a clear topcoat. It was very easy and fun to do.
It was a tiring 3 days but very satisfying. Alan was so enthusiastic and not daunted by any task. He also was not too proud to let his sister clean his kitchen!
