Painting My Kitchen Island with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

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!

Got a question about this project?

      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.

      You did a beautiful job on those! I have never seen any done where it doesn't look like a "wanna-be" granite imitation. Well done! Love how your mirror ties into granite colors.
