The mice will do tons of projects around the house. My husband’s been gone for training for the past two weeks and I had a to do list the length of my last grocery list. I loathe grocery shopping in case you don’t know me. Usually because I end up taking all 4 of my kids and I get all sorts of comments like “Wow, you’re brave” and “Are they all yours? You must be glutton for punishment”. Anyways, one of the major things I vowed to do while he was gone was refinish the kitchen cabinets.
Here’s the before.
And here’s a ton of after shots. I used the color “Swiss coffee” paint with primer from Behr, distressed them, applied a light coat of stain called “Provincial” over the top, then a poly top coat to finish it off. I got the pulls at this tiny thrift store near Fort Hood, Tx for $1.50 and the knobs are from Home Depot. I didn’t know how I would feel about the tin back splash being the same color as the cabinets but I really like it. I considered painting the bottom a different color than the uppers but when I looked for kitchen images online I noticed that there are NO kitchens with a darker color on the top than the bottom. Only darker on the bottom. Why is that and have any of my readers (like I have any of those) seen it that way? Let me know if you have, I’d like to see it
