Brighten your surroundings

Kitchen update
If you are adventurous and want to update the look of your kitchen, be sure to check out this issue’s Prime Your Palette column (page 76), featuring Tracy Moreau’s shabby chic stenciled relief cabinet doors. Not only is this a cost-effective means of changing the look of your kitchen, but it will definitely lift your spirits and brighten your home.

Make it yours
Whatever you choose to paint, feel free to adapt the patterns to alternate surfaces and change the colors to suit your style.

Happy painting!
