Keeping it Fresh in the Kitchen

Posted on August 07, 2014 by Sharon Wells | 0 comments

This past weekend the weather was nice at Canton's First Monday Trade Days.  I took this small handmade kitchen island with me to paint while I demonstrated and talked CeCe Caldwell's Chalk + Clay Paints. 

This custom mixed brown rusty color is only the 3rd coat of paint I had experimented with.  This was one of those projects that kept changing its mind about how it should be painted.

But that's just one of the great things about our paint.  You don't like it?  You paint over it.  Never remove anything to make the paint adhere.  Just keeping going until you are satisfied.

And I was definitely satisfied after this coat of paint.  This is a custom mix we love to make in the studio at Fresh.  It is Destin Gulf Green:Santa Fe Turquoise, 1:1.  The island seemed to sigh, "FInally, she got my vibes."

This island is perfect for a small space in any room, but especially the kitchen or workroom.  It is lovingly inscribed beneath the top that it was made for Mary by her husband in the early 1980s.  My own wonder hubs added casters to the legs.  The cutting board topped has been oiled with Miss Mustard Seed's Hemp Oil.  The Hemp Oil is food safe and such a good treatment for your wooden kitchen utensils.

The island can be seen at the Vintage Hip in Tyler when they open August 28.  Tell them Fresh sent you.
