Chalk Painted Kitchen Cabinets

Back in July I had a plan for this cabinet.

And now in February it is finally finished!
It wasn't that I didn't have the time to do this project, frankly I was afraid to do it!

I've used chalk paint before and painted tons of furniture but this time...

What if I didn't like it?
What if I ruined it? 

These cabinets are built in so there is no putting the ruined project out to the curb.

Today, I went for it! After all, my cabinets are a mess... 
I can hardly make them look worse!

After months of sitting here staring at this cabinet and picturing it in the color I wanted, I took the plunge!

I rolled out butcher paper on my kitchen floor, took off all the cabinet doors, and started painting.

I used Annie Sloan in Paris Grey.

I painted the center panel on one door with chalkboard paint for a message center. I am going to line the inside of this door with cork for a hidden bulletin board.

I added bun feet that were left over from 
a headboard project.

I distressed all the edges then waxed the cabinet with 
clear wax for protection.

And the cabinet is finally finished!

No need to kick this to the curb. I'm thrilled with the results, I should have started this project a long time ago!

Now I want the rest of the kitchen cabinets painted... (but I think I'll hire someone this time!)

And then I did... see the DIY on the rest of the kitchen!
