Low-Budget Kitchen Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Hi, everyone! I have an exciting new chalk paint kitchen transformation to share with you today.

My friend, Briee, just bought her first home! Briee’s husband, Ryan, is the pastor of the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church in our town. They have become our best friends over the four years we’ve all lived in Alta. Ryan and Briee recently accepted a call to serve in a church in Carroll, Iowa, about an hour away from where we all live now. Briee’s new home is a gorgeous Craftsman style house that is similar to my home in a lot of ways (except one). The kitchen is kind of new. The previous owners remodeled the kitchen within the last five years. It has nice cabinets, a stone backsplash, and granite counters. The only problem? It is dark, which is not Briee’s dream. We are spending one week making over Briee’s kitchen with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and I can’t wait to share the whole process with you!

Here are some “before” photos of Briee’s kitchen.

It is a nice kitchen, but it is not Briee’s personal style. With a few low-budget, high-impact updates, this kitchen will still be just as nice but will look like Briee’s dream kitchen! I firmly believe that your home should reflect your style, and that you should do what you love instead of being a slave to the opinions of others.

We will be painting the cupboards with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White!


I’ll share our full design plan in the next post along with progress photos and a step-by-step process!
