Adventures In Furniture Revitalization & Creativities
Thursday, January 26, 2012
We finally redid our kitchen cabinets. After many months of deciding to repaint or not to repaint. It cost a lot less than replacing the cabinets which were in good shape, just old looking and very dark. We had replaced the floor a few years before and was happy with the floor but it didn't show up like we had wanted to because of the dark cabinets. The kitchen was so dark!!! So we went ahead with the painting and all the hard work and all the mess but it was worth it!!!!! Here are some of the before pictures.
We started the process by sanding all the fronts of the cabinets, than primed the fronts and than painted the fronts with a flat cream paint. When they were dry, we than poly acrylic the fronts and did it twice with sanding in between the coats. We splurged and got new hardware and hinges for all the cabinets, which also help the update. It made the kitchen look brand new and our floor looks wonderful. What a little hard work can do and accomplish. Here are a few of the after pictures......
