Louis Blue Kitchen Island…

An incredible new look!!!

When we were hired to paint this lovely kitchen island (see the before picture below), we were so excited when our client picked Louis Blue!!! We presented her 3 sample boards with different variations of the Clear-to-Dark wax from Annie Sloan.

We love the look of the bead-board waxed!!!

Shannon immediately went with the Dark wax and wanted to make sure it looked aged, different and that it was a separate piece of furniture in the kitchen… NOT like it had been set there from the cabinet maker to match the rest of the cabinets. We loved her combo and quickly got to work. Don’t you LOVE the detail the Dark wax gave this island?

The handles were simply the icing on the cake…

The groves and detail.

The wine nook is extra cool!!!
MJ was super happy we were painting one of her favorite shades of blue! We had a fun time helping this kitchen transform into a  more comfy, cozy and loved living space! Thanks Shannon for allowing to be apart of your home for 3 short days 🙂 We hope you get many years of happiness out of it.

    Love Louis Blue…my favorite is to mix it with old white and bit of paris grey….sigh.

    This island turned out fantastic…it went from sucking all the light out of the room to being the highlight of the room!

    As always, fabulous job!

    I am totally in love with this island! Can you please tell me if you cut the Louis Blue with any other color, or just applied it in the full color strength, then used the dark wax. Thank you so much!
