Home Paint It - - MAKEOVER -

Kitchen re­mod­elling com­pany Malco built the cup­boards from Su­pa­wood and Lisa Spaar­wa­ter of Lemon & Lilac Paint Tech­niques took care of the paint­ing. Both con­trac­tors were also in­volved in the re­fur­bish­ment of the Prins’s pre­vi­ous home.

Ca­rina specif­i­cally wanted the cup­boards to have a weath­ered look so that they wouldn’t look brand new and or­di­nary.

“I also didn’t want the space to look like a tra­di­tional kitchen, so the mi­crowave and any un­sightly or loose items are hid­den in the free­stand­ing cup­board that we left un­painted.” Two tall cup­boards serve as pantry stor­age.

“Free­stand­ing cup­boards cre­ate a lived-in feel but I also wanted a sur­prise element, which is why I chose a black Fal­con stove and black paint for the cup­boards.”

The end re­sult is the so­cia­ble kitchen Ca­rina had al­ways wanted. “I love it when some­one comes to sit with me while I cook,” she says with a smile. >>
