Paint can work wonders on your walls, but painting kitchen chairs is a great way to give furniture a facelift too.
Before you begin painting, make sure to buy a paint roller with an extension handle so you can easily reach the ceiling without standing on a ladder. If your ceiling is textured, you‵ll want to use a thick-nap roller to ensure you can completely cover the irregularities in the surface.
When it comes to paint, there are two types to choose from: oil paint and latex paint. Oil paint is very resistant to water, which is why it works well in kitchens. It also tends to be very shiny, so it's mainly used on cabinets, woodwork and doors. Latex paint is the more popular option for kitchen walls and it comes in a few different finishes.
You can paint your kitchen backsplash a solid color, use a stencil, or even create the look of faux tiles using painter's tape.
