Kitchen | Painting the Island

To say that painting is addicting is an understatement.

There was a left over paint from the kitchen painting project and you know that feeling when your hands are just itching to use up that left over paint from a previous project?  

That's how I feel.  I mean, it makes me want to paint almost anything I see in the house.  Granting that I have all the time in the world.

So that's what happened with this kitchen island.  
I learned from Megan from Honey We're Home  (thanks girl) to add Floetrol  to reduce brush and roller marks.  How cool it is too that she also used SW comfort gray on her home as well.

Then the kitchen island got a paint job, but not on the side where the drawers and the cabinets are.
And floetrol is truly amazing - no brush or roller marks at all!  I super love it!! 

If you want to buy it, click on the image below:

The front was also painted but with a different color, it is a left over paint from my sister's bathroom.  Because I wanted to something that would pop over the SW comfort gray kind of shade.  This one is Behr but I wasn't able to get the color, if you want to know that, just let me know.
This project only took me a small amount of time but it looks so rewarding and refreshing.  My kids were there in the living room watching and playing while I was painting.  

It has 2 thin coats of paint with complete drying in between that.  It dries pretty fast so it wasn't a big deal to wait since this is a small surface to paint.

The kitchen is now slowly becoming my style and very thrilled about it.

Until then...
