Yes friends, it's finally here.
Strike up the band, clap your hands, ooh and aah, and for gosh sakes, somebody throw some confetti!
The kitchen cupboards are done. Painted. Antiqued. Fini. (Well, all except for knobs, which are laying on the counter in a bag, and I do promise to get them all up this week, and to share photos!)
Here is a before shot of part of the kitchen as seen from my entryway. It's a bit digitized, as it was from the virtual tour of the cottage online. (I showed the counter re-do before on this post...oh my. Was it really all the way back in March?!) And just below the before, is an after...including a vintage table that used to be painted red and served as a night table in a guest room in my last house. ( it's just exactly the perfect size to use as a kitchen island now that I am in my sweet, sweet cottage!)
Now, it's been reinvented, and I owe it all to the Maid-of-Honor. (I had no idea this was what Labor Day meant...) She was like a pit-bull drill Sargent. I only got to take a break twice, and that was to assist her in an hanging a light fixture in the master bath, and then for a quick deli sandwich.
*edited to add: If you're interested in trying this paint method, I have full instructions here.
For my kitchen cabinets I used Behr Brand from home Depot "Ultra Pure white" in eggshell finish for my paint color, after I painted 2 coats of Kilz primer.
