My Kitchen Cabinets Are Done!! Come And See!

Yay!! My cabinets are finally done!!! If you have been following my mini kitchen makeover then you know we recently bought new stainless steel appliances. My next project was to re glaze the kitchen cabinets and add new hardware. I glazed them when we first moved in, but always thought they needed a little more so I have been tackling this project for the last two weeks. (off and on because I'm a little lazy...lol) I am loving the way they turned out!! It's not a huge change, but just enough to warm them up and add more character. For you who like the chippy look...there are plenty!! I decided not to touch all of them up.

I have also reworked some of the tops of the cabinets. One thing calls for another!


In this picture you can see I have not done anything to the island yet...


You can really tell the difference between the cabinets and island in this picture.


Close up

Lovin the new hardware! It really changes the look of the kitchen!

Now I am going to tackle the island...It's going green!! I had a decorator/paint expert help me with the color. She picks out paint colors for alot of new homes. She has used this color before and said it is really pretty. You can't tell much about it from this, but I think it will be beautiful especially after it's all glazed. We will see!! It's called misted fern by Sherwin Williams.
Speaking of green...We just bought this little set at Wal-mart the other day. It also came with a coffee table and two chairs. Love the color!

I wasn't sure about the pillows that came with it so I am having them recovered with this pretty striped fabric. I am also having all of the pillows on the outdoor patio recovered in this too. This fabric just makes me happy!! :)

I am going to work on the island this weekend...if all goes as planned. We also have a ton of yardwork to do...uggg. The crape mertyls are past time for a trim!
There is still time to enter my giveaway...just click on my previous post.
Two more things...lol...I have several of your beautiful mesh wreaths to show soon...so stay tuned!! Also, someone asked the color of the cabinets and I found out it is Everlasting by Sherwin Williams.
Have a wonderful weekend!! I hope it's warming up in your neck of the woods!

Your kitchen looks beautiful! I can't wait to see the added pop of green. I just like the name "misted fern"! I have to pick out hardware for mine this weekend. I love yours. I'm going to go with something very simple and stainless I think since our countertop will be very dark when it gets here.

Melanie said...

I love the cabinets! I had handmade cabinets in Florida and they were painted and glazed. I loved them and I miss them.

Yours turned out great and I think the island being green will look fabulous!

A Hint of Home said...

The cabinets turned out great! You did a good on them. I've thought about doing something like that on my cabinets but I'm a bit chicken to try it.
I love the definition it brings to your cabinets.

Beverly said...

Fitted kitchens said...

Really beautiful. I like your kitchen which you have posted here. But i love the most your kitchen counter-top.

Kriste said...

Your cabinets look great! I am wanting to do this to my kitchen soon! Just curious as to what color of white your cabinets were before you put the glaze on? And did you paint them white or were they already white? Mine are stained so I am going to have to paint them and then apply the glaze. Great Job!

"Blossom" said...

Your cabinets are so beautiful.
What a great accompblishment!

Michele Smith said...

Your cabinets look really great, love the new knobs!
The striped material is awesome!

Hi Kristen~ ~Love how warm the kitchen looks with the glazing. I've been wanting to paint mine a warmer shade of white now I'm realizing that I can just stain them. Thanks for saving me a ton of time!!
Want to come over and help?

Little changes can make a huge difference in a room's outlook. Good thing you added those cabinets there, girl. They're very useful, especially when you want to store goods and other stuff for an upcoming event or what. Hehe... The green paint is ♥! You should really thank the decorator who helped you pick that color. :)

This is a great combination of kitchen appliances and hardware! It’s all made of stainless steel! From the sink, to the oven, and even the refrigerator. And then, with a softer shade of white for the cabinets and the counters on top of it all, the kitchen looked even warmer and more inviting!

Alphonse Daigle said...

Carl is right! You must love stainless steel appliances, don’t you? ;) They all look spanking new. You must’ve been really hands on in cleaning these appliances. That’s good! This greatly enhance the look of your kitchen!
