This weeks before and after comes to us from Avery Michaels from Holland Avenue. Avery has decided to paint her kitchen cabinets two years ago with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. Her kitchen has been featured by Apartment Therapy, Country Living, The Today Show, Better Home’s & Gardens, The Colorist, Buzzfeed, Delish, and Popsugar. This has led Avery to be chosen as a 2018 Better Homes & Garden Stylemaker!
Avery’s DIY final project was amazing! She has recently done a blog post on how her Chalk Painted cabinets have been holding up over the last few years! This is a common question we get “How durable is chalk paint for kitchen cabinets?The short answer …VERY DURABLE! Be sure to hop over to Avery’s blog and check out the full recap here and the initial post here.
The colors that Avery used in her kitchen refresh are Chalk Paint in Pure White on top and then she used 2 coats of Chalk Paint in Duck Egg on the bottom. The Pure White instantly adds a bright and open vibe. After painting the cabinets, she sealed them with Annie Sloan Clear Wax. This is the perfect finish for any DIY paint project! It’s a two in one, adds durability and makes the paint finish velvety smooth.
Check out the BEFORE picture! It’s amazing what a few coats of paint can do for a kitchen and a little good ol’ fashioned muscle! Instead of gutting your kitchen and spending thousands of dollars consider investing in a few cans of paint and wax if your budget isn’t ready for the “gut job”. For those of you SELLING a home with an out of date kitchen…paint those cabinets before putting your house on the market!
Don’t forget how easy Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan is to use, NO PREP NO PRIMING needed. Just pop the top and go! Check out the Annie Sloan YouTube page for some video with Annie herself or email/come into the shop and we can walk you through the process!
