If your kitchen has dark cabinets, choose a lighter shade for the backsplash to keep the room from feeling too heavy. If you have white or light-colored cabinets, a bright or darker paint color could work well. Since it‵s pretty easy to paint your backsplash, you can feel free to have some fun here. If you end up not liking the color you choose, you can just paint over it!
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.
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.
