So the sagey cabinets were such a hit that I got to do the rest of the kitchen. I just finished last week and it was so much fun. The client AND the decorator both loved the way it turned out and that made me a happy camper!!
I did this job with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint which I got from Anne Skougard in California, but now her daughter Kellyanne (Kelly@thebellabungalow.com ) will be selling it up here in the Northwest. Yay! (If you're interested in the colors I used or how I applied it - 3.25 qts for 60 linear feet of cabinets including the island - leave me a comment.)
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is a great product that doesn't need primer. Also not supposed to require sanding but I did clean the cabinets with Simple Green (lemon, don't like the smell of the green one) and a sanding sponge.
Here are the befores:
And here are the afters:
Here's what Anne Steward, the decorator on this project, said, "You did one of my most favorite jobs for Sue J. - it just lightened up and "woke up" that kitchen!! Such an amazing transformation....LOVE IT!! Now I want to be there because it's so bright and inviting..really is beautiful. Such a great joy - thank you so much. She's so excited, and she loves her new hardware...her house is really coming along."
I get to have too much fun in this job! On to Las Cruces, New Mexico to do a couple of jobs and have some R&R. Rumor has it there's sun there. Here in the solar-deprived Northwest it's hard to imagine actually being warm and dry...
