Kitchen Makeover DIY - Painted Kitchen Countertops

We bought a 40 year old fixer upper with a kitchen that was desperate for love. Prior to these pictures I have painted/repaired the cabinets and walls and added all new hardware. This alone has done WONDERS but there is still a lot of work to do. I have researched how to paint laminate countertops for months and to be honest I have been very hesitant to tackle this part of the improvement process. I was torn between concrete overlay and painting. Wanting to get this done  as quick and a cost effectively as possible, I chose painting. I picked up one can of Rust-Oleum Countertop Coating from Lowes and a foam roller kit. The paint is tintable to several shades but they were not dark enough to my liking. I shared my concern with the employee that assisted me and he was able to darken it up a bit more.
Here is my before. (the backsplash is still a work in progress. I had to order more peel and stick tiles)
 I painted the edges with a brush and used a roller on everything else. I used thin layers each time. I did the first layer and let it dry for one hour. I added the second layer and let it dry overnight. I added the third layer and let it dry for three days. Here are the results after the first layer:
 As you can see there are several areas where the yellow is still showing through. The fumes from this paint were very strong. I had the window and screen door open with two fans running on high.
Here are the results after the second coat:
The lighting in the picture makes the two sides look like they are different colors, but they are not. The picture to the right reflects the true color. I had a few areas that needed touched up after I removed the painters tape so i used a very small paint brush around the sink and backsplash and then rolled on a third coat. The color is exactly what I had hoped it would be. In this final picture, the paint is still very wet. 

At this time I do not plan to add a top coat of varnish, but I will add updates as it sees some use in the next days and months.

Shoe Organizer in my Pantry

Filled under: , ,

I am always looking for ways to maximize space in our home. The pantry has been on my 'to-do' list for a while and I am happy to say that I am finally getting it organized. The first project was adding a shoe organizer to the back of the door. I found this one on amazon:

It fit the door well and has wide pockets. I was worried that i would need to add something to 
the bottom of it to keep it in place but it doesn't move much when the door is opened or closed.
 It has freed up so much space in our little pantry. I only wish I would have done it sooner!
