We have spent the last couple of weekends doing some DIY to (finally) create our new copper and geometric colourful kitchen diner. We knocked the wall down ages ago one random Sunday afternoon (I say we, I mean Brad!) and had a bit of a rearrange but nothing had been done to fix the situation in months. So last weekend I got to work repainting the feature wall with this geometric colourful pattern. I got a bit carried away with the frog tape creating triangles and painting them with a mixture of pink sample pots I picked up.
My main aim was to brighten the whole back room up, it doesn’t get the sun so we wanted to keep it as white as possible to reflect any light it does get. We also had a very pine (ERGH!) coloured table which I painted using the grey floor paint I had left over from the living room. I’m really pleased with how that came up. I also went a bit crazy with the spray paint on my lovely mid century style chairs. I’ve had them for ages and they’ve been an array of colours but I love the copper and gold job that I’ve done on them.
We FINALLY have a dishwasher (#adulting) I’ve been asking for one since we moved in and it’s already changed my life! I love the bigger breakfast bar too, although there still some work to be done there. Brad’s going to make polished concrete work tops for both sides eventually but it’s a slow process and I couldn’t wait to show you what we’ve achieved so far.
I filmed a little colourful kitchen diner tour video if you’d like to watch!
