~ Display Cabinet Kitchen Island Goes White ~

Mr. Sweetie never knows what I'm going to paint next...well this time the paint brush landed on the kitchen island.  What a difference this made to the look of the kitchen...so much brighter than the stain look.

I painted the cabinet with an oil base primer...wow does that stink up the house. Let the primer cure for a couple of days before painting with Creamy latex satin. I only applied one coat of paint. I decided not to distress with this being an island as it will get plenty of distressing with time.

Looks great, Karla!

Love the white! What a difference it makes :)

I think my hubby feels the same way that yours does. A while ago he came home on my day off, saw my sheepish grin as he walked in, and the first thing out of his mouth was, "What did you paint today?" haha! he knows me too well :)

You know if you found one with big enough drawers you could make a dresser into an island like this too!
Love the slab top, love the papered shelves!

Looks so much better! I am the same way, my husband never knows what I'll be painting next.... paint makes everything better!

It didn't look like it needed a redo but the new look is sooo much better.

Found you on the Shabby Chic party. It's amazing what a little coat of paint will do - I'd've never guessed the "new" island was the same as the "old" one. Great job!
