Another Bright Change in the Kitchen...
You might remember the "before" photos of my kitchen... I had red shutters hanging on the window above the sink. The kitchen window is on the side of our house, facing our neighbors' kitchen window, so we need the shutters as a privacy screen for us, as well as for our neighbors, and I also like the architectural interest they add to the room. The red color just seemed to absorb all the light in the room, making it even seem darker than it was! Spring has FINALLY arrived in Minnesota and I was able to get these spray painted yesterday!
(no advertising here ...it's just what I used)
If you haven't used a comfort handle...it makes spray painting so much easier...just be sure to line up the spray nozzle with the handle opening or you spray the inside of the handle (I may have done this a few times...)
Look how bright the shutters are in the room now... they reflect light into the room...
I love how sunlight comes through...it's adjustable, and gives the needed privacy!
I'm really happy with how these turned out! The rest of my kitchen painting has stalled lately...and this gives me the inspiration to get going again!
