Kitchen Cabinets Makeover with Chalk Paint®

We were recently hired to transform outdated, oak, kitchen cabinets in this lovely home in Capitola.  The couple that hired us wanted to update the look of their kitchen cabinets without spending a fortune.  Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan is the perfect product to do just that!

It is so easy because there is no need to strip the finish off or use any primer when painting with Chalk Paint®.

We started by scrubbing all the cabinet doors to remove any grease or dirt before painting. Then, we painted two coats of Old White Chalk Paint®.

After the paint dried, we applied a nice even coat of Annie Sloan's Soft Clear Wax, followed by a Dark Wax glaze.  We left more of the dark wax in the grooves along the edges.  
These were just basic whitewashed oak cabinets before, but now they are simply stunning.  The whole look of the kitchen has been transformed.  It is amazing how much a little paint can make such a drastic difference!
Our clients are very happy with their custom Chalk Paint® cabinets!

If you would like an estimate for you kitchen, stop in and see us in person at Loot or give us a call (831) 247-4571.

Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint for Your Cabinets

Louis Blue Cabinet with Annie Sloan Clear Wax  

Painting your cabinets is the most economical way to remodel.  For a small investment and a little work, you can make a tremendous difference in the way you feel about your kitchen or bathroom.  If you would rather have someone else do the painting for you, call us and we will be happy to give you an estimate (831) 247-4571.

Chalk Paint® decorative paints by Annie Sloan are wonderful to use on cabinetry for many reasons. Chalk Paint® saves time because there is no need to remove your existing cabinet finish, whether you are working with a painted or stained surface.  Chalk Paint® adheres so well that you do not even need to use a primer! Annie Sloan clear wax provides durability over the paint, making it easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth and protecting the painted finish from grease, water, and dirt.  Chalk Paint® is extremely low in VOC's, making it perfect for using indoors.  When you paint with latex, the paint gives off fumes for days or even weeks after painting. 

What we love the most about using Chalk Paint® decorative paints by Annie Sloan is the professional finishes this paint creates.  Your kitchen will look like you spent lots of money on custom cabinetry!  With 30 colors to choose from and dark wax for antiquing, we know you can find the perfect hue for your home.  

Take a look at some of our Chalk Paint® cabinet doors:

You can even make a couple of your cabinet doors into chalkboards.  All 30 colors can be used as chalkboards.

Spring is approaching and transforming your cabinets is a great way to welcome the new season!
