You know the ugly door knobs I am talking about. Even though our house was built in the 2004 it looks like it was built in the nineties. We have brass everywhere. Since we are in the middle of our home improvements I decided to update the whole house. Now that we have a new color and fresh paint up on the walls and doors the brass looks even worse.

This week I wanted a simple and quick project that would add some character and color to the kitchen. Since I love rustic signs that is what I wanted to do. I have seen them for sale for $75 EACH and up and that is WAY above my budget. I wanted to see what could do for about $20? I have been hearing about the Elmer’s Paint Pens . So I decided to take a trip to Walmart and grab some for this...

YES YOU CAN! I read all over the internet and heard experts saying that painting these countertops would not work. I have these ugly formica laminate counter tops that go up the way as a back splash too! UGLY! They came with the house when it was built.

So I decided to start on a small part of my counters. I decided if it did not work or looked horrible it would...
