The full tutorial of how I applied it is above on the video but basically, every color, I mixed a 1 part paint to 3 parts glaze mixture.

I created a perfect arch by using string, a push pin, and a pencil. Every line as I went, the string got shorter to accommodate the arch. Using the pencil lines as my guide it was quite easy to achieve the look.

Using a 4” wide short bristle brush, I did light strokes until the colour was even yet soft and kind of water colour -esque all the way across the arch.

After all the Colours were complete, I went back through with the same 4 “ Bristle brush (washed of course) and used the base colour (white diamond) to really soften the lines and make them look really subtle. Because the choices of this rainbow colours were purely my daughters, I had to make some compromises. It was much brighter than I had originally anticipated or imagined but she really enjoys it!

Well Yay for us! The first official post of our Ruby Thursday Home is live! If you follow along on our instagram account, you can pop in and look at the highlights at the top of our feed and see the progress of how the kitchen update went down.

Back at the beginning of this blog about 6/7 years ago, I did my first round of kitchen updating when I was 6 weeks pregnant with Ruby and I knew the I wouldn't get another chance for awhile. Well I was right because she just turned 7! If you would like to look at my old photos and blogging attempts you can check that out HERE.

Now that you got to see the past, here is a little bit about the current situation. I used white paint from Benjamin Moore Advanced the bottom cupboards. I used a green paint called Tarry town green also Benjamin Moore Advanced. Both are in eggshell finish. I have used this paint many times throughout my house on various furniture pieces. It is an oil based product with soap and water cleanup. It goes on so nicely. I have since used it on a closet door and handrail. That's for another post though! I also used Rustoleum antique gold and spray painted all of my hardware.

 open shelving without having to actually removes the cabinets. We would have had to redo the tile and my husband wasn't into that! hahah

If I didn't already tell you, I am extremely happy about how this turned out. Since these photos I have added a rug runner and new lights but that's for another post too!

White paint $25
