Colourful ideas for a casual eat-in kitchen

This year I'm definitely into colourful options for my home - every room in a home, so I loved these visual ideas for a colourful kitchen or eat-in kitchen. You can so easily achieve the look using Plascon paints and Rust-Oleum spray paints and paint is an affordable and easy way to add a splash of colour to any room in the home.

Grab a can of Rust-Oleum 2X at your local Builders Warehouse and spray on beautiful colour. You can use Rust-Oleum spray paint on almost any surface - including plastic - and two coats is sufficient to cover. Rust-Oleum 2X comes in satin or gloss finish, both in a wide range of colour options, and it's the most affordable way to give old furniture a new look in an instant.

Because Rust-Oleum 2X can be used on so many surfaces, you can make your own colourful decor accessories. These pendant lights [below] can be made using a variety of inexpensive items - even plastic plant pots or galvanised tin buckets. Think out of the box and look around your home for items that can be recycled and given a new life - and a new purpose!





Stay tuned to Home-Dzine as we will be showing you step-by-step instructions for making the trestle table shown above very soon!

Colourful tea towels, table linen and accessories won't cost you much and are a quick and easy way to add a splash of colour to any kitchen.

Set the table with colourful crockery and accessories. Most home decor stores shop a selection of colourful chinaware that is perfect for dressing up your dining table, whether for casual dining or for a fun event. We took a quick look at what's available at Mr Price Home and Woolies...

Get crafty and create your own colourful kitchen decor that's affordable and fun to do. We bought glass canisters (R39.99 @ MRP) and sprayed on Rust-Oleum chalkboard spray before adding colourful designs with deco glass paint. Click here to view the project.

And last, but definitely not least... don't forget the power of paint. With just one can of paint you can transform your kitchen with colour. Pop into your local Builders Warehouse to choose a selection of colour swatches and then take these home. Take a look at the swatches in your kitchen under different lighting (natural and artificial) and at different times of the day. After making your selection let the guys at Builders Warehouse mix up a batch of colour for your home!
