Oxford Navy Country Kitchen
by Annie Sloan
This kitchen was painted with Chalk Paint® in Oxford Navy, Annie’s deep, inky blue in the Chalk Paint® palette, and paired with Versailles and Olive for a contemporary country look.
This classic but contemporary kitchen has been given a new lease of life with a lick of Chalk Paint® in Oxford Navy. A fresh coat of Chalk Paint® is an excellent alternative to redoing your entire kitchen (click here to find out more), and as demonstrated here, the end result is fresh, smart and beautiful. Just be sure to Chalk Paint® Wax or Lacquer to protect. Apply Chalk Paint® in thin layers to shiny surfaces such as melamine kitchen cabinets, although wooden surfaces such as these cupboards and kitchen caddy will not require any special measures.
The Oxford Navy parts of this kitchen have been lacquered using Matt Chalk Paint® Lacquer for an understated, velvety finish. When using Chalk Paint® Lacquer over darker Chalk Paint® colours be sure to apply in thin coats to avoid any cloudiness. The floor has been painted in Chalk Paint® in Versailles and then lacquered in Gloss Chalk Paint® Lacquer for contrast. Finally, the hand towel is made from Annie’s woven fabric Ticking in Olive.
