This may be one of my best finds ever.  When I saw this listed for sale I knew I had to have it. When we went to pick it up it was in the gentleman’s garage. He told us it had belonged to his wife’s grandparents.  It was covered in grey shiny paint…the ENTIRE thing!

I could see a lot of sanding ahead, but that was ok because I knew it had great potential.

I thought about painting it cream, but instead I wanted it to have a bit more personality. I created a custom colour with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint mixing Provence, Graphite, French Linen and Arles. That’s my favourite part of painting, mixing my own colours!  I love how it turned out.  In fact, it’s the most popular post I’ve ever had on my FB page!

This 8 foot kitchen island turned out exactly like I had envisioned. 🙂
