Since kitchens are such a busy part of a home and often need extra cleaning, a satin or semi-gloss finish is the best options. Satin and eggshell finishes are commonly believed to be the same, but in fact, satin is a bit shinier. Satin finishes are easy to clean and good at standing up to mildew, stains and dirt.
Just like the title of the popular movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" suggests, the Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while mixing in sun-warmed tones of gold and yellow.
If you need ideas on how to update your kitchen chairs, think outside the box. Scroll through Pinterest to get some ideas on colors, decorative finishes or other creative touches. If you just want to paint your chairs, consider using a bold color that will really shine in your kitchen. Try bright yellow for a cheerful set of chairs or consider a striking cobalt for a more sophisticated look. Emerald green, turquoise and coral are other fun shades to consider. If you want to get even more creative, use a different shade of one color to create an ombre effect with your chairs. Or mix and match a bunch of pastels including yellow, mint, blue and pink.
Once you´re ready to start painting, you´ll want to prime the ceiling. Once the primer is dry, paint a 2- to 3-inch cut-in line on the ceiling using a paintbrush. Make sure to start painting the ceiling with your roller while the cut-in line is still wet to avoid having a visible line. Then, make a zigzag pattern with your roller and go over that with straight strokes to even out the paint. Let the first coat dry and then start the same process over again for a second coat.
