Kitchen Update

First, thank you for all the great birthday wishes! It meant a lot!

Well I am not completely done with painting the kitchen counter tops but its looking great! So far, so good! Pictures turned out a little too dark, sorry! I use two different cameras and get two different results!

I've been cleaning the counter tops with Windex but I am planning to make my own cleaning solution with no chemicals and using coffee filters to clean them. I have some home made cleaning recipes I want to try out soon! I will keep you posted!

Everything is turning out great. I wasn't so sure about using the Envirotex Lite but I've had great results. I love the HI-GLOSS! It just makes it look so nice, clean and fancy.

Just wanted to share with you how our kitchen is coming along.

Hope you have a great weekend! Talk to you soon!


  1. I think this is my first comment. Let me tell you that I love your creations. You are very talented.

    Wow, I love your kitchen and the new look of the counter.

    I want to do that in my kitchen but, I live in Puerto Rico and I don't know where to find the envirotex lite? What do you think if I use glaze to give my counters a gloosy look. Please help me. My kitchen need a serious update.

    Have a nice weekend.

    PS: Happy Birthday!!
