Chalk Paint Kitchen Cabinets Before And After

You know I am a huge fan of chalk paint and it seemed so much easier with the “no prep” idea behind bleach paint. I was so happy to read your comment, because I just ordered my paint to end the kitchen. Hi Christina, Thanks so much! I do love it so much better. I have been frighten of starting the project because I’m very impatient and I love instant enjoyment, but I know that this project will just take time and it is a fortune of work. ;)) Thanks! And please forward me a photo… I would no really kindness to see it if you decide to paint! 🙂 Nancy

I am finishing up painting my kitchen cabinets with ASCP in true white. I knew every tenement that was for sale, the rule footage, the acreage, the sales price. Let me caution anyone who thinks, as I did, 2 cover and you’re done. Nancy

Thanks, Christy. No matter how many times you sand in between, it seems to me that (if you are using a rundle) you are still going to see the knap in the final finish, true? It’s been about a year since I painted mine and they really have held up very well, and they look great in person.  It has held up so well, and it is so calm to wipe down the table!

Thanks Thea! (hurt for the late reply! I missed some comments somehow) You can use the Chalk Paint on any of that wood…should be fine! And the molding, I am planning to do a mail on that soon. Even my husband kindness it and he was one of those people who said don’t paint that beautiful wood! Like he would triumph that proof. I am painting my cabinets soon and have been on the hunt for a immense tutorial and I have to say yours takes the cake. Again, great site and confidence to continue getting more ideas from you! Thanks Martha

The second time around I used  Amy Howard’s One Step Paint  (her version of bleach paint). I put a lot of effort into the prep, making sure they were cleaned and sanded really well.  Awhile back, I painted my scullery table (click HERE for the tutorial) with this paint, and I used her Matte Sealer (which is similar to a polycrylic). I had made it my mission to find us a place out there. However I’m looking at yours and they look totally fine to me. On a whim, one Friday afternoon, I did just that. Keep me posted on your galley and pace yourself. Just wondering if personally it bothers you or if you experience they look excellent enough to not be worth the effort. Also keep in mind chalk paint is meant to be sanded or “distressed”. (although I did paint a cherry wood cabinet in my guest bath last year. The close is so smooth and the enamel makes it constant and so easy to dexterous. My cabinets were professionally painted brick red approximately 10 yonks ago and now I’m thinking painting them Old Ochre–is that unsafe? Do you think Annie Sloan in Old Ochre will cover it? Its a very dark red. The prep needed was well worth the conclusion result, and there was no need to wax or seal the paint after, as would have been needed with bleach paint. Brown trim, brown doors, brown cabinets, bay wall paneling (aka the “cave”) in the family room!) And yes, I do get it about painting over the ruddy. However, unlike most chalk delineate Amy Howard’s One Step Paint doesn’t require a seal-hunter. But it is a very hypostatic choice. The cabinets were pine with a dark stain appropriate over 30 yonks since. Now that he can see how the white pops on the cabinets, promise him – and it’s the verity as my sister’s husband put the same once In their kitchen – that the mouldings and their details will show up so much more done in white.

Hi Trisha! Oh yes, I so hear you! (our whole house was brown, and DARK brown at that. My toughest decision was what kind of paint to usage. I try to do sections and give myself a batter along it is a project – but SO worth the time! Good luck!

hi Christy! I loved this tutorial! Thank you much for taking the time to stamp out all the steps. (Aren’t they the cuties, though, with all their decorating ideas?). Hard to sand , in the traditional way, with paint that “wants” to come off. I rode through the neighborhood and left notes for about 8 people. BUT I understand about wanting to brighten things up. I just Mr.’t know about not second-hand a seal-hunter on cabinets… Chalk-type paint would work well on oak since it’s so thick and can help hide the grain. 🙂 And yuppers, the gear was actually my idea to dress up the doors and my husband was unsure as to how well it would hold up but did it for me anyway. That will make touch-ups so calm. I call her often over the last year and every period I was there I would tell her how much I destitution to move to her untried neighborhood. Plus, you really want to have a smooth, bribe and grime-free surface to paint on anyway!

As a very shaggy conductor, you will need one 500ml qualifier of wax for every 3-4 litres of paint – of course, this will depart depending on how many coats of paint or wax you use to cover a piece. So not only did I end up wih several cloth of chalk paint, but had to sand it off and address shellac to enclose the wood and pretty much start over. Although I lief it that color, I LOVE the way it has brightened up the narrow bath. It is a beautiful color/wood. Secretly, I had one house in my heart.

I had been putting off this project for distance too long. I cogitate they really look nice, but MUCH more work than I thought!

So it seems that is true…who knew? I did not find this step privy, nor did I sand between color coats (which if I were going to sand is probably where I would). I think, to this day, he is shocked the decorate pieces haven’t loosened or fallen off. I used it because of the 2 cover, no prep claim. Good chance!

H Lauren, this paint does have a chalky appearance like normal chalk paint. However, I chose the latex enamel in the Satin finish and I could not be happier. They have held up faultlessly for almost 10 yrs now, not one problem on any of them. So now I have barren, shellaced, about 3 coats of Annie Sloan and now finishing with 3 or 4 tegument of General’s polyacrylic. 10 ages and still going strong. Also, when you application the Poly Floor Finish, did you have to courage in between coats? I’ve tell some followers do. Your answer helps a lot. Good luck on whatever you decide to do!

Last year, one of my very best promoter bought a house on 4 1/2 acres. My hubs and I do all kinds of diy projects but this is one I’m afraid to start although I’m sure you cane how it is, the wish just gets stronger and stronger and before you know it you’re prepping for it lol! I do have a quick question, I noticed you didn’t paint the inside of the cabinets. People really do get all up in arms when you start loquacious about painting over wood sometimes. 😉 Mine were very basic, nothing special and so it was an easy choice for me. BTW, had a thought on your window mouldings and hubby. I resolute to keep the lighter uppers. After many months with no such luck, she allude to that I leave notes in people’s mailboxes to see if they would like to cheat their houses. I think it will be very such to what I have now – which was Annie Sloans Old Ochre. Your kitchen looks so much brighter and so beautiful! I’m so looking progressively to mine feeling brighter and cleaner. 😉 Nancy

Hi Nancy, what a great site! It is such source of inspiration! I’m about to do my kitchen cabinets and I have two subject for you. I sanded the passage down slightly to get them ready and he cut, glued & clamped the trim to the fronts. I’m going to use Amy Howard’s One Step Paint in Linen, and it’s a beautiful creamy excuse. I seriously would do it all again just the same way. Darker stains will bleed through chalk paint. And it’s always best to have a little wax left over for touching up. I personally would not be afraid to do it…and it would change the look and feel of your kitchen immensely! It would create such beautiful contrast…and I just adore contrasting colors. But, I just cut, glued (wood glue) and clamped them well. Does it embarrassment you at all when you undissembling them on a daily base? I’ve considered not painting the inside of mine but I’m afraid of regretting it later. With the eyelid tightly on, it will last vaguely.
