Progress

Another set of cabinets, complete...
Well, just the upper half.
That's why you will only see the top in these photos.
I'm so impatient.


I had several questions/comments about how I did this cabinet makeover.
Yes, these are oak cabinets.
I sanded each door lightly.
Then I added three coats of white paint. Just basic white paint from WalMart.
Then I sanded the edges for a distressed finish.
I am planning to slap on a quick coat of sealer.



Another extra fence board, which I used for a pot hanger,
using the same stencil as my "fresh eggs" sign.
(See my previous post)



To all those out there who doubt painting the cabinets,
I say GO FOR IT!
This was one of the few projects I tackled on my own
(without my sweet hubbys help).
Oh, I should say I cheated a little...
and didn't paint the insides of the doors ;-)


I still have a whole lot more to finish.
So, keep checking in!


Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
I'm off to LaurieAnna's in Canton!!!!
I promised my hubby I would take him
LOL

I'm sharing with these terrific ladies...



Blessings,

I love how your kitchen is turning out. I need to repaint all my kitchen cabinets too. This is great inspiration.

Debbie said...

I really like you style!!~ You have a great eye and do a fantastic job. I am sure you have inspired some gals to paint their cabinets now. Have a wonderful time. Debbie

Just found your blog and love your vintage, chippy style.... I painted/glazed my kitchen cabinets about 9 years ago. They are due for a new color now. Either that or I need a total reno! LOL Mine took about 7 coats of paint/glaze/finish and came out looking like an old French kitchen, but now I want a new look.
Your new white cabinetry is so clean and fresh looking and befits your style so well. I LOVE your scale and your bottle holder. I have seen reproduction holders in catalogs, but even they cost an arm and a leg. I guess I will just dream... hope you'll come by for a visit sometime. glad to have found ya! :-) Sue

Hi: Just happened by and I love how you decorate. You have great taste and style. I love white but have yet to incorporate it into my home because I have many cats and I don't think the two mix well. I'm your new follower. Deb (Ottawa, Canada) =^..^=x5

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I wonder how the two cabs look together? I am considering just painting the tops white and keeping bottoms maple....wish you would show a pic of the whole room!

Actually, it was already fab before, so I can only imagine what it will be like when it is fully done.

I found you through Laurie Anna's Vintage Home blog. I fell in love with your painted cabinets. Mine are oak and I want to paint them and take the doors off so bad. Love yours!! I enjoyed reading all the way back to your first post. I hope you can have your own shop one day. You are certainly a very talented lady. I am very sorry about your sweet Mom. She was a beautiful woman. I look forward to following your blog. Love & blessings from NC!
