(My husband has started calling me Sir Paints A Lot. Adorable, eh?)
Here lies my boring old buffet (R.I.P) in good ole black laminate. This was the first piece of furniture my husband and I bought together; we needed more storage for all the kitchen
crap wares we registered for. She has been a good girl, served her purpose well, but it was time for a rebirth!
Yup, you guessed it! It wouldn’t be a post these days without the help of our chalk paint!
Two quick coats turned this black laminate silky white in 1 hour!
For the frame I used Old White. For the doors, Duck Egg.
I did the lightest of light distressing on this one. I just can’t have it too “finished” looking. Not my style.
Helloooo, gorgeous! Once this gal was done, I just couldn’t stop staring at her. So I did what any great decorator would do: moved it into the darkest, dreariest hallway in America.
(With terrible lighting to boot! Thank God we are moving in days!!)
I cannot wait to find just the right spot for this piece in the new digs!

I am now your newest follower. You have some lovely things here.
I love the idea, but I've never heard of the chalk paint. I'm considering painting my parents' cupboards in their kitchen, but I want something that will hold up well to wear. Maybe this is the thing to keep me from sanding for days!
this looks great i have several dark fake wooden laminate furniture pieces around and would love to paint them, did you use a primer or just the chalk paint ??
No primer needed with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! You just need the wax after you paint to seal it. Thanks for reading!
