If there’s one project I’m not excited about its’ this one. Don’t get me wrong. I am very excited about the results but dreading the process.
This will come as a shock but I decided to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Ta, Da! I really didn’t want to mess with a primer and then two to three coats of whatever kind of paint. Of course this means I have to wax. BUT, I’m really looking forward to the end result. And I can’t emphasize END result enough. haha.
I played around with Country Gray and a couple other color combos but had my heart set on the Graphite. My counter top is a marbled color combo. See it?
I knew the cabinets were going to be a charcoal-gray. I’m so happy I found Graphite! It’s a really nice slate color. The wax deepens the color to a rich dark charcoal. And I love it!!
It took me about a week. But it was worth it. I worked on it at night and during the weekend. Still need to touch up minor details and finish painting the walls. I’m not a professional but I think they turned out really pretty!! I love how the wax gives it a sheen, too. Check it out!
