;) I have officially painted just about everything in this house with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint at this point.
You have 72 hours to get back to me, otherwise a new winner will be selected.
But so much has transpired since then…it’s been tough to get around to writing about it.
I will tell you how we made them look different (better) besides just painting them in an upcoming, full on, reveal. (yep, that’s what we did to make those flat, plain doors look better) And then I painted them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. That’s where the 1970’s trash compactor used to live. I painted them twice in less than 2 weeks, I should know. (that’s no surprise to me, btw, I just wanted to let you all know that) Note: I didn’t repaint the interiors because they were still in really good shape from the first painting. The knobs were bought 9 years ago when I painted the cabinets the first time.
I didn’t want them stark white so I mixed up some of these 2 colors – Since they are in the kitchen and will be handled a lot I decided to seal them with Varathane floor sealer (Lowe’s) instead of wax. ;) But just take look at my kitchen cabinet makeover with Chalk Paint……. This one was made for that exact purpose, sized to fit a compactor space. But truly, what a dream it was to use the Chalk Paint. I didn’t “glaze” them so are a fairly good match to what I have now with the new paint job. 3/4 to 1 quart can since I didn’t have to paint the insides. I ended up not putting them on back then but decided I wanted to add knobs this go round.
I was so pleased with how smooth the Sherwin-Williams paint went on.
Not to mention it dried incredibly fast with little to no residual fumes, which allowed us to continue sleeping in our house during the project.
This picture helps show the contrast of the Sherwin-Williams Light French Gray to the previous “warmer” color. I’m so pumped that I was able to create a completely new look and feel for my home just by painting it.
It can feel overwhelming picking the “perfect” paint color for your home or furniture–but I can honestly tell you that using the Sherwin-Williams color selection tools (Chip It!
This photo helps capture the contrast of the Snowbound white cabinets with the Light French Gray Walls. Because we wanted a pristine, finished look with no brush strokes, a paint sprayer was used rather than a roller or brush.
