Planning and updating kitchen cabinets can produce a remarkable kitchen makeover in a few days over a long weekend.
You may find it useful to have brushes in a variety of sizes depending on the angle you’re painting.
Here’s the top 10 questions I get about my chalk painted kitchen cabinets: 1. Originally, I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White on the uppers and Duck Egg Blue on the lower cabinets.
You can roll the paint on but I felt like brushing it on gave me a better result.
I did not take the doors off or prime the cabinets. You may end up needing two cans of white depending on the number of cabinets you’ll be painting. I waxed the cabinets over the course of a week, during Ada’s naps or while everyone was sleeping. I have never made a big production of waxing them again but instead do touch-ups. I also think two different colors gives you a more custom-look.
The Duck Egg Blue went on so well, I did two coats and still had paint leftover to use on a few other projects. If you’ve never used wax before, it may be a good idea to chalk paint and wax a piece of furniture first to get the hang of waxing. I love this tutorial by Cindy from Simply Reinvented. Here is an area on my cabinets that didn’t get enough wax. I pick up a sample pot of chalk paint ($12) from my local stockist and touch up the areas if the paint has been damaged (as above.) If there is a water stain, which happens once-in-a-blue-moon when the wax has been worn thin, I just add more wax and buff the area out.
