Kitchen Stuff

Here are a few pictures of the beadboard backsplash that my husband aged with some glaze. I like it sooooo much better than the bright white. He still has to do the part on the other wall, but we have to move a TV, toaster oven, and microwave and just haven't gotten to it yet. I used a gold frame I had and painted a chalkboard on the backside of the painting that was in it and hung it on the beadboard. The frame was too gold for my taste so I dabbed on some black paint to darken it some. I also cut out 2 rooster pics from a calendar and put them in 2 frames I had. I like that the frames have a goldish look and are substantial looking. I may order some rooster prints I saw online, but am going to use these for now. Have a great Monday y'all!!!

The bead board looks great. Love the iron scroll piece, too. Your kitchen is so cute and colorful. Love it. We put bead board on my daughter's back splash, too, but she will eventually tile it when they can afford to.

Hi Angie. I love your backsplash and the glazing looks so good. Love those little Roosters in the frames. Yep, I do love the yard birds! :)
You have such a pretty kitchen, and I'm not jealous, no no Nannette, not a bit. Well, may just a little bit.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Very nice, Angie! I love the way your backsplash looks!
I have a backsplash like that. I didn't use glaze on it though. I also used that same glaze on my kitchen cabinets a while back.

I love the glazed beadboard. There is nothing better (to me) than glaze. My kitchen cabinets in our Florida home were glazed.

Your husband did a great job.
