Whether you know me personally or follow me online, you have probably picked up on the fact that I love to read. Want to know another passion of mine? Projects!


From putzing on a homemade card to working on a full room makeover, I can’t help but have at least three projects going on at all times. The thrill of a good before and after picture motivates me to keep dreaming up creative ideas. Anyone else?!


On Saturday I was itching to transform a space that I could start and finish in a day. I chose to tackle the space under my kitchen sink. Yes, I know I will be the only one that sees that space. And yes, I know I’m crazy. But every time I open the cupboard to grab a garbage bag or reach for the dishwasher detergent, I see the floor and smile!


Here is the process…

Step 1: Clean the Area

I cleaned first with water and dish soap followed by Krud Kutter.

Step 2: Paint

I painted the area with two coats of Fusion Paint Raw Silk.

Step 3: Decide on Design

I loved the current design, so I simply dabbed Fusion Paint Coal Black over the space. However, you can cut your sponge to make whatever design you want. If you're not feeling creative, check out sponge paint ideas on Pinterest. Sooo many fun ideas!

Step 4: Decide on Pressure

I wanted a light black, so I made sure I dabbed my sponge on a paper towel a number of times before applying it to the floor's surface.

Step 5: Cut Sponge to Size...Again

This step may or may not be necessary depending on the area you're working on. However, I needed to cut my sponge a few times to get around poles and the edges of the space.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Put your space back together, step back and enjoy the beautiful space that YOU did! And yes...decor under the sink isn't necessary, but... it's cuuute!
