Featured Artist - Painting Kitchen Cabinets

One question I am often asked is whether or not you can paint kitchen cabinets with Chalk Paint®.

The answer is a resounding YES and here are some photos from Chalk Paint® Stockist, Bella Tucker Decorative Finishes of a kitchen that they recently re-modeled. 

Cabinets in French Line and Old White. Island in Graphite.

Before of Kitchen

Painting your cabinets is a great way to update your kitchen without a major remodel. Remember, though, that this is a project that will be more involved. It is recommended that the cabinets be removed before painting. You can spray paint the doors if you don't want to see paint brush strokes (thin the Chalk Paint® with water). I personally like to see brush strokes! And, you will want to put at least two coats of wax (letting the first "set" for a few days) since they will be getting a lot of wear. But, they are beautiful!

I will be posting a tutorial of Cabinet Painting with Chalk Paint® soon!

Happy Painting!
