First let me say I love your kitchen!! I am a sucker for red anyway! Thats all my accent colors through my house..although mine is tradtional I have always loved the cottage look! My question is. We are putting in a new countertop and building a island. I was wondering how you painted yours..what color you used and how you did the glaze? It was either go black or white glazed..I am leaning toward white..any info would be great!
Hi there, P.,
Yes, I do love red, too! Always good to hear from another red lover!
I wish I could give you some info on my island but I actually bought it just the way it is and didn't paint it myself. I'm not exactly sure what was done by the furniture crafter, but it looks like a flat, cream color paint was first used and then it looks like the island was glazed with a dark brown glaze. With the excess glaze wiped off, the cream paint takes on an a darker, aged appearance.You may want to try this on some test boards and see what you think.
