Of this 3-pack, I would use the largest and smallest brushes most often. I use Purdy or Wooster brand brushes on almost any project I do.It really does make a difference on the finished product.I once had a friend tell me 20 years ago that, “If you’re going to do a project and don’t use Purdy or Wooster brushes, it isn’t worth doing.” That was 20 years ago before the DIY craze and it still holds true today (in my experience).NOTE: Last winter, I removed the doors and repainted the upper cabinets because I found the Old White to be too cream-colored, but another option you may want to try is Annie Sloan Pure White chalk paint.It really does make a difference by lending some mellow vanilla goodness to the tart fruits.I did not add raisins to the jam, but you certainly could.
I did not take the doors off or prime the cabinets. You may end up needing two cans of white depending on the number of cabinets you’ll be painting. I waxed the cabinets over the course of a week, during Ada’s naps or while everyone was sleeping. I have never made a big production of waxing them again but instead do touch-ups. I also think two different colors gives you a more custom-look.
After a year, the uppers looked dull and dirty to me.
I only applied one coat of wax on the uppers originally so I was able to apply Sherwin Williams Pure White directly over the chalk paint and wax with excellent adhesion. It is my go-to white because it is clean without looking too sterile or cold. I used Dawn Simply Clean and water to remove the greasy build-up on the cabinets.
The Duck Egg Blue went on so well, I did two coats and still had paint leftover to use on a few other projects. If you’ve never used wax before, it may be a good idea to chalk paint and wax a piece of furniture first to get the hang of waxing. I love this tutorial by Cindy from Simply Reinvented. Here is an area on my cabinets that didn’t get enough wax. I pick up a sample pot of chalk paint () from my local stockist and touch up the areas if the paint has been damaged (as above.) If there is a water stain, which happens once-in-a-blue-moon when the wax has been worn thin, I just add more wax and buff the area out.
I’ve always heard that on kitchen cabinets, you should use three coats of wax. Here’s the breakdown: Duck Egg Blue .95 plus tax Old White .95 plus tax Wax .95 plus tax Wax Brush .95 plus tax Brushes (Had these) Hardware Approx. She does a great job of explaining wax and prepping your brush in simple language. As you can see, over time the paint has flaked away. Like anything in a house with kids (or pets), there is wear and tear. This is super-easy and shouldn’t keep you from painting your cabinets. I should probably recommend waxing once a year because that is what a stockist would say.
