Color me Carly

Carly’s kitchen just wasn’t screaming “Carly!”  There were too many contrasting wood tones, a paint color that did none of them any favors and a countertop that I can only describe as ‘barf-speckled.’  The only one who could stand it was that cat, and that’s because he’s colorblind.  (Are cats colorblind?  I just made that up.)
Anyway, since she had always wanted a white kitchen, fresh paint was first on the list!  Then, she tried out a creative mix of countertop paint and roll-able stone coating to achieve exactly the look she wanted on the counters, and finally, a pretty sea foam green for the walls. Grand total … $300! Check out tons more lovely details on her website Carly Kmyta.
