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!

    2. 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)

    3. the new paint color definitely suits your kitchen better–great job on the finish, too!
      thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, i appreciate it!


    4. 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?

    5. It is fabulous! The color is perfect!!! And it does brighten your kitchen!!
      Well done!
      I love also how you finished the top! Very cool piece

    6. 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!
