Painting My Kitchen Island with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

kitchen 01.14.16
We built our house during the 90's ode to oak era...so all the cupboards, trim, windows and flooring are oak. I finally made the time to paint my island with chalk paint. I used Annie Sloan Chateau Grey and AS lacquer then I finished with Valspar glaze. I'm so happy with the results as it breaks up that sea of oak! So I have a new island for about $60! Next up... the countertop!

      No, no, no. You can't do that. Paint the cabinets, but not counter tops. Love ASAP but it's not for that. Sorry.

    I actually did paint my countertops and it turn out great! With Giani Granite paint at http://gianigranite.com/ Originally it was a 90's white fabricated home laminate. Now I can't wait to do all the countertops in the house with a make-over.

    3 colors put on with a sponge, you can't make a mistake. I will try to remember to do before and after in the kitchen this fall.
