|Sorry for the blurriness. I tried.|
1st Step: sanding
|It was really hard to get a good picture of the sanding,|
but can you see the streak?
|Please forgive the black marks on my stove. I did clean it,|
but my pots and pans leave black marks that take
some major elbow grease to get off.
The primer dried pretty fast :). And it only took me about 10 coats to cover up all the ugly forest green! (I don't really know how many times I went over it - it was more than 3 though - but it really did dry fast, nonetheless.)
|I put the gray down first, 2 different shades.|
Can you see where the counter and the backsplash come together? The sea sponge doesn't get in that space very well. I suggest using your fingers to fill it in.
Before I added the green, I sponged over the gray with 2 different shades of white. The gray is supposed to be minimal and kind of muted, so I wanted the white to cover up a lot of it. Plus, with just the gray down, it really looked like I just sponged on some gray blobs, instead of looking like the flecks in granite.
|Again, sorry for the blurriness.|
Next Step: go over again with more white. Lots more white, so the green looks more random.
