PAINTING BLACK & DISTRESSING GERI'S NEWLY BUILT KITCHEN ISLAND

Geri had a very nice, large kitchen, but no island.  She designed an island and had it built so the grandkids would have some place to sit for a snack and watch tv.


She called me and asked if I could paint it black and a bit distressed.  I could do that!!


The first thing was to prime the new wood.  Then, I painted it black and rubbed the edges to show a little of the wood color underneath.  The black looked so nice with the granite she chose.  And, it looked so good in her white kitchen.
I loved working for Geri!  She was fun to talk to!!
Right now, I'm painting Geri's daughter's kitchen cabinets and I'll show that to you very soon.
Thank you, Geri!!

    1. Thank you so much!! I'm following, too. I just painted her daughter's kitchen with the same finish and it really made a huge difference from the stained orangey oak look.
