Caromal Colours Parchment Kitchen Makeover

Nancy, from Loogootee, Indiana,   contacted me back in January and wanted to know how to go about purchasing sample colors of the textured basecoat paints.

A month later I heard back-

I recently got samples of your paint colors with and without toner. Can I get samples of your colors with the different color combinations? I love your paint…. I’m going to paint my island in my kitchen before I paint my oak cabinets  …   I’m thinking about painting my cabinets with the parchment over the chocolate with just a little distressing…

Today, one my favorite kinds of emails arrived – ones with pictures attached!  With a note –

I’ve sent you some pictures of my kitchen cabinets and my hutch.  My kitchen cabinets were all oak and very dated.

I used the chocolate as the undercoat and then I used the parchment over that. I did a lot of sanding as I like mine to look really old. I used the toner and then a sealer. I went for the heavy texture.  I decided to replace the hinges and the knobs instead of painting over them.

My hutch was all oak too.  I didn’t take before pictures of that.  I used black as the undercoat and then mustard on top of that.  I did a lot of sanding on that too.  I left a lot of toner on instead of wiping it off I just dabbed it to get the excess off, and used a sealer-

As you can see I like my furniture to look really old. The older the better.  I’m going to replace the glass on my hutch at some point with something old and rusty. I just haven’t gotten around to doing that yet.   I really love this paint. I probably wouldn’t have done this if I would have had to sand and prime first…

What a difference!  Your oak cabinets no longer look ‘tired’, and I love the new hardware.   I also am a fan of using color on your hutch.   Thank you Nancy, for sharing not only the pictures but also your experience with Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Paints –  I’m sure they will be a great inspiration to others!
