One of my favorite things to do is to redo kitchen cabinets. It’s a great money-saver and it can really transform your kitchen. Here’s one that we did not too long ago.
First, we had the homeowner add some crown moldings – then we did a base color and the first coat of glaze
Here I am putting the first coat of glaze on…
I then did a oak woodgraining that matched the cabinetry. Since the tones of the oak were different in some places, I had to change my recipe a bit here and there! I then did a border stencil to look like inlaid wood on the soffit to bring your eye up – and to be more decorative.
It really changed this kitchen! The cabinets appear taller and it’s a more modern look disguising the soffits! This is a great idea for anyone who wants to update their kitchen…but especially when you are selling your home – this can really make a difference to a potential buyer.
We are doing another kitchen makeover like this the end of this month – only we are doing an antique cream finish over oak cabinetry. I will post those pics as soon as the project is finished!
