Team effort

Resene TeaKirsty and James recently purchased their first home with the 1980s ‘cream on cream on cream’ theme throughout. With the kitchen being extremely outdated they decided that was the best place to start renovating… and as the lounge, dining and kitchen are open plan, they tackled these areas as their first major project.

Resene paints gave them the most economical way to update - all they had to provide was the elbow grease (and two parents to help sand, wipe and paint!). Preparation was a long and tedious chore but the Resene paint finish was glamour galore! They began with the ceiling using white Resene Ceiling Paint. Walls throughout were coated in Resene Tea, which was complemented by the windows and architraves in Resene Quarter Tea and highlighted by the passage doors in Resene Triple Tea. The kitchen cupboards were painted in Resene Pravda - what a dramatic improvement.

The paint job has transformed the area into a sleek and modern living area, so much so that Kirsty has commented "it will be difficult to drag ourselves away from this comfort to continue our decorating with Resene paints throughout the remainder of the house".
