Kitchen makeover

Our kitchen has needed a makeover for a long time.  I hate to see anything wasted and the cupboards are good and sturdy so it would have been a real shame to just rip them all out.  I thought I would try my hand at decoupage.  I made my own chalk paint using emulsion mixed with calcium carbonate (bought the CC from ebay) It took a few coats to cover the oak veneer.  The panels are simply wallpaper from B and Q.  It hasnt been sealed yet as I only finished it a couple of hours ago.  Tip learnt from other decoupagers.... use a water based clear acrylic varnish to seal it.  I bought mine from Wickes over in Portrack.
