Painted cabinets

June 20, 2012

To pick up the colors of the milk-painted cabinets and enliven this kitchen, the plaid design was painted on the wood floor with classic colors—cream, vintage green, gray and burgundy. To find four colors that work well for this plaid design in your kitchen, look to the colors of your cabinets, counters, backsplash, etc. Washed-out or faded colors create a soft, welcoming backdrop for busy rooms like kitchens. Many paint manufacturers carry a line of historic colors if you want a historic or country look.
To create this plaid floor, water-based paints were used. Practice using the roller and brush on a wood board before you start the project. This will help you get a feel for how much paint to use and let you practice making even strokes.
