What's New at Lettuce Paint?
Thanks so much for stopping by to see what's new.
We're going to do our best to update this page monthly.
There's so much we'd like to share with you.
contemporary copper ring bath  First, a big thank you to Stel!
Stel, it was a blast working with you on
your powder room and we are so excited
with the finished product. Stel actually
had a picture of some tile with a modern
graphic for inspiration. We created an
oversized border on a bronzy copper
metallic paint background. Custom
stencils were created for the
interlocking rings. The rings have a
sort of effervescent look with a fun
and sophisticated design in this
charming space.

There’s some terrific detail with dark veins and gold webbing that makes you want to look twice. Stel, we hope you and your family are enjoying your new powder room!
Next, a big thanks to Gerri! Earlier, we painted Gerri’s kitchen cabinets and she got a
fantastic new granite counter top. Then a tile back splash was installed. Gerri decided
she wasn’t totally happy with the look of the white tile and called Lettuce Paint back
to see if we could help solve her problem.
kitchen backsplash BEFORE  First we helped her select a new wall color. That just wasn’t
  enough, the tile was still too white. So then we painted, yes,
  painted the tile. We used a special paint and with the proper
  preparation and sealant created a new look without the mess
  of ripping out the current tile and installing new tile. The tile
  transformation was complete in a day, not to mention earth
  and wallet friendly since the new tile did not end up in a landfill!

Just look at the result:
painted back splash AFTERThe newly painted black tile really
compliments the granite and provides
contrast for the amazing cabinets.
The green wall color adds warmth
and ties in nicely with the nature
inspired theme of the cabinets.
So we know you're wondering, is
this going to hold up? It's true
we would not recommend painted
tile for a horizontal work surface
(although there are concrete
products that WILL cover a tile
counter with no problem) but for
a back splash, the special paint
will be durable. Preparation, product and topcoat are the keys to making this work. Gerri is able to clean it with a soft rag or a sponge and some soapy water.
