Inspiration for a timeless kitchen remodel in Montreal

Transforming and refinishing

Traditional Kitchen, Montreal

After: I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint, antiqued it and waxed it. We kept the inside as was, it actually complements the graphite color quite well. I also faux finished the walls with a scratched patina to complete the new look of the kitchen.

    Hi Linda

    Thank you.
    I'm not sure you can go much lighter, it already looks pretty light. But if you go to an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint distributor (check on the internet who sells it in your area) you can see the actual colours and decide for yourself, and they might be able to advise you if you bring the small drawer and your BM wall colours samples along. You might choose to go with a darker colour for more contrast if you're going to sand off some of the finish, or stay within the same family for a subtler effect. Here in Montreal there are 2/3 places that offer classes to show you how to do it yourself.
