Amy Howard Chalk Paint

Have you ever wanted to paint something but were just not sure?  I have been wanting to paint this island for a long time and finally did it!  I know a lot of people do NOT like to paint, I on the other hand, LOVE to paint.  We bought this island at Cost Plus World Market and it has served its purpose over the last 19 years but it has certainly taken a beating.  When we bought this house 19 years ago it didn’t have an island.   It still looks good, however, it needed a makeover.  I love Amy Howard Chalk paint. Have you ever used it?

I have used it before on a night stand in Riley’s room and recently the bar cart for the new screened porch.  Our local Ace Hardware carries it so I headed over to check out the colors.  I knew I wanted white because our cabinets are white – I painted our cabinets 2 years ago.  What I like about Amy Howard Paint is the prep is very minimal.  All I did was wipe it down with a degreaser I had on hand to get the crud off, let it dry for 30 minutes, and got to work.  I really love the way it turned out!  Our local Ace Hardware has a great selection of Amy Howard paint and the folks there are very knowledgeable on her line.  Amy Howard has a whole collection of paint for every DIY project.  I highly recommend it.  Here is a link to some inspiration: Amy Howard
