Suggestions on a chalk paint color
The room looks too dark to me. I have gotten so many compliments on the finished project but my eyes just aren't happy with the look. I am contemplating painting the cabinets with chalk paint to lighten it up some and give it a more satin finish rather than a glossy finish.
Some background on the rest of the room. The carpet is a burgundy/merlot color, my drapes on the patio doors are a antique gold color with different shades of gold and merlots. Currently the cabinets have antique brass pulls and I want to keep them since they were quite expensive. I really don't want to paint them with chalk paint but I may consider a metallic spray paint. I want to match the glass tiles on the back but I don't want to go too light. The dining opens up to the kitchen and the kitchen cabinets are dark golden oak.
Wooh ! I'm throwing a lot of information at you.
So my fellow Hometalkers HELP me find a shade of chalk paint or two colors to mix to get something nice. I really don't want to DIY chalk paint for this project. I'm biting the bullet and will buy pre made chalk paint for this project. I plan on buying some samples before I make a final decision. Suggestions on where to buy reasonable priced samples will be appreciated.
