We just painted these mini blinds. Yes, our bamboo mini blinds!!!! So quick and easy. I want to show you how!

This is our breakfast room. We just replaced the hardwood floors.
We painted the trim all in SW Alabaster – one of my 50 favorite colors! (Get my free video with the other 49 colors HERE ).
We got curtains that are so fun from THIS SITE.
I was loving everything about the room. Except……
The dark bamboo blinds were killing it for me.
So I decided we were going to paint them.
Everything in the whole wide world is paintable, you know that right???
It seemed like it would go super easy and super fast.
That is my go-to off white color for everything.
It’s the perfect warm cream and perfect to tone down the blinds.
I started the blinds and then Melissa painted 9, yes 9 of them for me! We did a few hanging up because we thought it would be so much easier.
Then we tried to do a few laying down.
We tried cream spray paint to see if that would go quicker, but came back to this chalktype paint process because we liked it the best.
Here is how the breakfast room turned out. So good! And so much cheaper than replacing!
So we decided to do the living room windows also! How did I manage to miss a BEFORE shot??? Ug. I have this when we painted the TRIM in the Alabaster!
And here is the after!
And then we moved to the office as well!
Isn’t that a fun little DIY? I think we used 2 quarts of the French Vanilla chalk-type paint and the only other supply was this fiber oval tapered brush (don’t forget to use my coupon code MAGICBRUSH you’ll get 10% off your order AND any order over $75 gets free shipping.)
