Notes from a Swedish stylist


Kitchen Re-Make

Posted in Life
by Emma Elwin on 4 March, 2017

Last weekend I painted the first layer on our kitchen cabinets (they used to be a light-almost-violet-grey). The doors had a few dings but were otherwise in good shape so it felt wasteful to get new ones. A fresh coat of paint can give new life to something you considered old! I used linseed oil paint (chemical-free) and it has a beautiful shine. One liter is enough for our entire kitchen, so it’s also very economical. The only down side is that it takes 48 hours for the paint to dry… But given the upsides of the paint I find that a small price to pay. One more layer and the kitchen is done. I’ll make sure to post a before and after picture as soon as it’s done!
