Hey everyone! I hope everyone has a great month of April so far! I can’t believe it’s almost May and summer is right around the corner! I love summer for multiple reasons….outdoor fun, lake time, BBQs…and it’s a whole lot easier to paint and work on projects with nicer weather! 🙂 That being said, I love the power of paint. For those of you who don’t know a lot about me and my blog, Refashionably Late, I love to refashion furniture! I love how paint can transform a piece of furniture. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure! 🙂
These stools I made over were not junk, I was just tired of them and wanted a change. My mom purchased these bar stools on Amazon for my husband and I as I house warming gift when we moved to Minnesota. We temporarily rented a townhome and my mom wanted to get some stools that were versatile and could but cut shorter for a future home if need be.
Well we are in that future home and we’ve done a lot of adjustments to our kitchen. We painted the tile backsplash, replaced our appliances, painted our kitchen cabinets, painted the walls my favorite color in the world, Requisite Gray by Sherwin Williams, replaced the hardware and changed out a couple light fixtures. I was loving how the kitchen was looking but after the cabinets were white I felt the room needed a pop of color.
I am new to the chalk paint world and I’m really enjoying it! I have used it for a few other projects and love the finish and quickness of using chalk paint. One brand I have been using frequently is Chalkworthy Antiquing Paint. I love how you don’t have to sand your projects ahead of time and it dries so quickly. I used one of their painting brushes and applied two quick coats while catching up on some Netflix. 🙂 Once it was completely dry, I applied their soft wax to protect the paint finish. I love the pop of color it now gives my completed kitchen! It’s the perfect compliment to our “new” kitchen! The photos below were photographed by David, a talented photographer with HomeRight.
