In the end I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. I didn't use any special technique, just two coats of paint and clear wax. After the wax I lightly sanded with a 600 grit paper, and it is soft and smooth to the touch!
I'm so happy with it and can't wait to get the other cabinets painted, hopefully this week!
I am looking at drawer and door hardware - we've never put any on these cabinets. Melissa at The Inspired Room (+The Inspired Room) is doing a series on kitchen inspiration and posted about using black hardware. I love the way it looks, so now I'm thinking about that. This whole series by her is great and I am storing away ideas in the event we do a small addition (kitchen and mudroom/laundry room).
I'm super happy with the way this cabinet turned out, and everyone who has seen it loves it too! Now I just have to figure out the day to paint the other cabinets. I may do it in spurts over a few days, or may wait until next Saturday, but either way it should be done before Fourth! (can you believe that's a week away?!)
Happy Monday everyone!
