The kitchen update is slowly coming along , over the weekend I worked on "jazzing up" those very dated counter-tops per Abby's recommendation :)
Are you ready for a sneak peek!?
|Here are some of my favorite products including |
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite
|If you are interested in trying chalk paint please click here, I have ordered my paint from Classic Wall Finishes and Patty is always very helpful.|
|you don't have to prime when using chalk paint but I wanted to take this extra step because it's the kitchen|
|I didn't want a smooth finish so I scuffed the counters up before applying the Wipe-On Poly|
|Abby is making sure it's done right|
|it was the "hubs" idea to use his buffer for waxing this save a lot of time and it help to give the counter-tops a bit more character|
|I really like the look it's sort of worn and aged|
|I am pleased with the results but I will wait about 7 days before I put anything on the counters I just want to make sure the paint, polycrylic, wipe-on poly and wax are completely dry and cured.|
|only time will tell how well this technique will last but I'm willing to be the guinea pig I will keep you posted on the wear and tear|
I painted the counter-top in the bathroom about a year ago and it has held up very well without any problems you can read about it here.
I hope to have this kitchen finished soon.......I can't take the organize mess much longer, Abby on the other hand is having a grand old time sniffing and getting into any and everything I don't think she wants the doors put back on, Abby isn't as innocent as she looks.
Thanks for stopping by!
