A simple, solid color can work on a kitchen backsplash, but chances are it´ll feel too boring over time. If you want to add some drama to your walls without relying on tiles, try stenciling a design, favorite quote, food-related words, or a beloved family recipe on your backsplash.
After you‵ve finished sanding, make sure to prime your chairs. Many people choose to skip this step, but you shouldn‵t. Priming will ensure your chairs have a beautiful, clean finish. Once the primer is completely dry, you can begin painting your chairs. Remember to go with the grain of the wood and use consistent strokes with your paintbrush or roller. Let the paint dry in-between coats, and make sure to seal the chair with a layer of polyurethane. This final step will protect your chairs from inevitable kitchen spills and general wear and tear, and it will also give them a glossy, even finish.
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.
Paint can work wonders on your walls, but painting kitchen chairs is a great way to give furniture a facelift too.
