Yay! almost done :)... Well, it's done enough to post some progress pix. Started out with an ordinary kid's kitchen I found at Goodwill.

Sanded it down, scrubbed it with TSP:

Next, using a sponge, I added what was supposed to be rust colored Monster Mud. But hey, it was my first time using MM (fun!) so I did not get the paint color quite right! It definitely looked more salmon and I was pretty bummed out at this point....

Next I added greyish black Monster Mud using sponge, random places....

Started to put this on pretty thick where I suspected an "explosive accident" may have occured during crazy experiments:

Next step: dry brushing on some metallic silver paint.. .let it dry..... then dry brushed on rust colored paint. Both were Martha Stewart brand.

Next step, dry brush black paint:

And the most fun part? Applying the green slime (really thick greenish black paint):

Then I added some lighting. Drilled holes in kitchen back splash area, added 4 metallic bowls I found at Goodwill (drilled holes in those too). Pushed white XMAS tree lights through the back and attached a red plastic XMAS tree ornament rubber ball thing to hold the four red lights in place.

I am not quite done yet...... Will be adding more finsihing touches for sure- but the hard part is over :) Thanks TERRA!

PS The thing on the top right is an IKEA wall mounted medicine cabinet with tempered glass. I put a cool party light inside that spinsa round and changes colors- It looks pretty neat-o :) :D

Great Idea Matrix Mom- Actually the one room in the entire Haunted House where we were going to use black lights IS Frankie's LAb! So I will MOST DEFINITELY take this advice and go with it. I will have to buy some neon paint closer to the Fall Festival date and add it to is... Will be PERFECT!

This is simply awesome! The faux painting turned out great even after the salmon......
If you happen to throw any neon green drips and throw in some black light cfls might make it light up more too! ;);)
