Did you ever notice that a popular colour for kitchen walls is yellow?
Finally, I moved from white walls in my kitchen to a colour. I selected a vibrant yellow but I thought I'd add a twist to my ordinary kitchen. I would fresco it with white and work it into an inviting subtle pattern. Boy, this was going to be sophisticated.
The previous paint was oil base so we went with another oil base paint. Semi gloss. A little bit of sheen but not too much shine... I thought. At least that is how it works out with latex paint. Besides, I pointed out to my hubby, oil paint is much easier to clean.
Did you know that oil paint has a much higher shine facter than latex?
I can't help running my hands along the wall when I enter the kitchen since I've never felt such a smooth shiny wall. The fact that I can check my makeup in the reflection is just an added bonus.
We call that yellow oil paint the Teflon Canary because nothing will ever stick to it.
We have a lot of leftover Teflon Canary if anyone is interested.
