So the main reason I decided to redecorate my kitchen was from a recent family trip to Tennessee. While we were there we happened to come across a beautiful store that does some amazing distressed furniture for kitchens. Well, I instantly fell in love with these very expensive pieces! I fortunately already have a beautiful island in my kitchen. It was decided from there that I would distress my kitchen island too. I mean really how hard could it be????
Here is a before pic of my kitchen island:
After lots and lots and lots of sanding. I then primed the entire island, little nooks and crannies everywhere!! Really what was I thinking?? Then sanded AGAIN. ( not to mention the billion times I had to vacuum up the residue).
Here is a pic after the sanding, priming and sanding:
Looks pretty good so far! I still have to paint the whole thing again?? Oh man! I keep telling myself it will be worth it! Well after a lot of painting, sanding (AGAIN), and glazing. My one day project turned in to a four day project, but the results: SO WORTH IT!!
This is just as good, if not better, than the pieces I loved in Tennessee! I'm thinking about adding a glaze with a very light version of the aqua that will be on the walls. We shall see!!
Happy sanding, painting, priming, sanding, painting, sanding, glazing!! (Remember its worth it!!!)
