Updating a kitchen island
About 2 months later, I noticed significant yellowing in different areas of my tabletops.
I want to refinish and protect both with a sealant, but would love to know what you recommend as the best for white painted surfaces which will not yellow, or amber, over time.” Cristi in Georgia says, “I am looking at installing board and batten on my island/bar area in my kitchen. The shape is not a straight “L” but an obtuse angle.
Be sure to sand off the existing finish or use a primer to ensure the paint sticks to the surface.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.” Ashley in Tennessee says, “I would like to redo my side yard and work my way down, but I live on a slope.

For the easiest way to upgrade your kitchen island, change the color of the cabinets. Solid wood cabinets can be stained after sanding or using a chemical stripper to remove the varnish.
Painting is generally an easier method to change the color of your kitchen island if your cabinetry is free of obvious wood grain or knots.
