Ever since I refinished my butler's pantry in my kitchen, I am dreaming of painting everything lighter in the house, particularly my kitchen area. I wanted to show a before and after of my butler's pantry transformation. Unfortunately I did not capture pictures of this project in progress. I do know it went through several looks and lots of time in order to achieve what I consider to be a fabulous look and finish. Before the transformation - originally I painted this piece black and used crackle with a color called White Wheat. The top was rubbed with a dark stain color.
After the transformation- to achieve this look, I put a white primer on top, and used a crackle finish with a white flat paint. I used all Behr products. I sanded down the corners to expose the original black color. I finished it off with a coat of wax .
