Nancy and I were recently hired by customers at Loot to paint this freshly made, built-in cabinet that sits in a corner of their newly remodeled kitchen.
The cabinet started out with unfinished wood.
Our customers chose Versailles Chalk Paint for the exterior and Old White Chalk Paint for the inside of the cabinet.
The customers wanted some dimension, so we distressed all the edges and then applied Annie Sloan clear wax, followed by dark wax. Instead of applying the dark wax over the entire cabinet, we used a small artist brush to paint the dark wax into all the grooves and edges. We did this same dark wax technique on the painted beadboard on the inside of the built-in.
Our customers were thrilled with their newly painted built-in cabinet! These two Chalk Paint colors look absolutely perfect against the pale, creamy wall color and also tie in with the warm tones in the hardwood floors.
