Changes in the kitchen

I have been thinking of painting my dresser in my kitchen for ages. I haven’t been able to buy Annie Sloan’s chalk paint here in Australia so I really had lost a bit of interest until I saw Sherry's post on No Minimalist Here the recipe to make your own chalk paint. Just what I wanted to hear so armed with my paint and some plaster of paris I set to work. I still haven’t been able to find some wax to finish my dresser but I am really happy with the results. I am now thinking of painting my kitchen cupboards.

This is the dresser after I added my white china but before I attacked it with the paint brush. It was a very old pine cupboard I had bought when I was first married (now that’s a loong time ago!!) so it really wasn’t something that was going to be a family heirloom!!

Ditto to what JoAnne just said.....and I think that cupboard is destined to be an heirloom after all! Beautiful job!
