80’s Melamine and Oak Kitchen Makeover

So excited to share this amazing transformation by one of my customers.  Holli owns a lovely 1930’s cottage here in Victoria and decided it was time to update the look of her kitchen.  Here are some of the “Before” photos.

The cupboards were painted using a mixture of half Coco and half Old White, finishing with 3 coats of Annie Sloan’s Clear Wax.

Isn’t this an amazing transformation?  I think Holli did a fabulous job!

A little finishing touch using Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan in the colour Napoleonic Blue finished with Dark Wax on the knife block.

It has been several months now and she is so happy with how it turned out, how easy it is to wipe down and its durability. Check out her blog at This Best Life.

    What a beautiful transformation of the worlds’ ugliest cabinet doors ever created! This kitchen is magazine worthy and inspiring to those of us who don’t have the big bucks to do a total kitchen makeover. Love the knobs chosen, the tile back splash and, what can I say?, the paint colour is fabulous!! Thanks for posting this.
