August 2003 finalist

From the Resene/Your Home and Garden Colour Home Awards Competition - Aug 2003 finalist

This colourful kitchen has won Christchurch homeowner Jeannie Steer this month's prize of $500 worth of Resene vouchers and a bottle of Daniel Le Brun bubbly.

Painted kitchen cupboards

Jeannie Steer disliked the insipid peachy cabinetry in her kitchen so much that within a week of moving into her townhouse she'd completely repainted it. She took inspiration for the Resene Waikawa Grey from the dark grey grout in the terracotta-tiled floor and the bluish tones in the grain of the rustic timber breakfast bar top. "The old colour was just ghastly but at least the cupboards were wood and they could easily be repainted," she says.

Jeannie didn't bother with test pots - she made her decision straight from the colour charts, ordering two one-litre pots to do the cupboards and the two wall shelves. "I was very motivated and it was so exciting to do it."

Colourful coffee mugs, a new blue bowl and a non-slip doormat complete the look.

Budget: Paint $74.50, Paint brush $15.00, Handles $128.70, Doormat $30.00, Blue bowl $20.00, Wall clock $9.00, Total $277.20.
