Kitchen Island- From Red to Blue

Remember this delicious red piece?


Well I’ve been working on cooling my kitchen, literally! I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue on the bottom and Old Ochre on the top. Finished with Annie Sloan Soft Wax in dark and clear. I love this paint! No sanding required, you can finish a project in less than a day!
It’s funny how much lighter the room feels with the blue, even though the walls are darker.

The distressed look is from the dark wax, I was going to sand it down, but there was too much red showing through.
I bought this at Nadeau, in Savannah.  They have beautiful pieces at reasonable prices.

 

 

 

 

You can find them on Facebook, Nadeau Savannah.

If you have a piece that you love, but need a change, I suggest the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It’s easy to use and I have been happy with all my projects!
So Refresh!

    Oh, Debbie that is just beyond gorgeous!!! It looks like a completely different piece and it really does open up the space. You have me itching to take a paintbrush to my own island now. :-) Everything you touch turns out so beautifully and we are always so inspired by you and thrilled that you share these things with us at Inspiration Friday!

    Sometimes, you just have to change things up a bit. I think you did an awesome job on this one. I love the color and the age you added.

    I think this is really beautiful! I wish I trusted myself enough to tackle something like this. Do you mind me asking what color that is on the walls–in the after shots?

    This is gorgeous! I loved it when red, but the “new” look is amazing … you’ve accessorized it beautifully, too! Love the paint colors you chose … chalk paint rocks, doesn’t it? *Becca* (newest follower)

    In a word… gorgeous. I am so going to have to get on board with these paints. I’m so glad you shared this inspiring project on Motivated Monday at BeColorful and I hope you will visit again.
