Painting My Kitchen Island with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

5 days ago
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!

    In twenty years or so someone will come along and strip that old paint off when they realize there is beautiful oak underneath.

    I want to paint over a table that someone messed up with chalk paint useing another color. Do I have to sand it first?

      CATHY If you use Annie Sloan paint, you should be able to paint over the previous chalk paint. You will most likely use two coats of Annie Sloan paint, wax, sand or not sand, and wax again if
