I did it! I finished my kitchen cabinets! I'm so happy with how they look!
Here are a few before photos
The boy standing on the chair? He's going to be eleven on Wednesday!
This shows you a bit of the long cupboard in the original finish.
Over this summer I have been painting them Old White in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. They are sealed with clear wax.
Dotsie had mentioned that she was having trouble with the layout of my kitchen so I took this photo. I am standing in front of the kitchen door. The sliding door to the deck is to the right of the long cupboard and the stairs to the basement are behind this cupboard. As you can see the hallway is to the left.
I almost did not get these cabinets finished this weekend. Five minutes after Rachel left for work, she called me saying, "I've been in an accident, can you come right now?" I slid my feet into shoes, and grabbed my purse and headed out the door! I combed my hair in the car, but that's all.
A car pulled out in front of her, and she was quick thinking, anticipating that he was going to go from a side road, so she was already moving over. He came out and she ended up clipping his bumper which crunched the right front of the civic and tore the man's bumper off completely.
The other driver, a kind, older gentleman, said to her, "You did good. If you hadn't have swerved (his word), you would have hit me broadside." Meaning she would have slammed into his driver's side door. That would have been bad.
Now, I could not have cared less, at this point, if I got my cabinets painted or not on Saturday. But she was fine (went into work even) and Sarah made dinner, so I was able to get them done.
They make the kitchen light and bright and I am so happy with them. I'm planning a trip to Hobby Lobby later this week to look at drawer pulls and door handles.
I'm so happy with how it turned out!
