      Hi Katie,
      I am in the planning stages of my kitchen Reno. I am planning on painting my cabinets and wondering how your cabinets have held up with the paint that you used. I think it was a B M acrylic. Love everything you’ve done!
      Thanks so much. Julia

        It was BM Advance and it has been great so far. If something gets on it and I feel the urge to scratch at it with my fingernail I have without any damage. I usually take a wet rag to them for cleaning or a magic eraser if the red chair bumps against it and creates a mark. I do recommend spraying the doors because wherever we touched up with a brush, it does show a little more. In general though, even with the exhaustingly long ‘curing’ stage, I highly recommend it.

    Katie: Love reading your blog. You have such a cute family. When showing my husband your faux brick idea, he suggested when using your jig saw and skill saw to do the cutting for the faux brick, cut from the back side and it will prevent the chipping and rough edge on the brick side. I would like to use this idea as a backsplash in our basement bar and possibly under our chair rail in our pool table area, so we’ll see how his idea works for us.

      Good suggestion. Since our cover plates cover up the edges, we didn’t care and went for speed but I totally see how your solution would be nice!

    Hi Katie! I’ve been following your blog for a couple of years now and wanted to see if you’d like to do a giveaway for an Origami Owl locket/necklace and have one for yourself. If so, just give me a shout and we can set something up. (I couldn’t find a “contact me” form anywhere so this is as close as I got). Thank you! -Liz
