Here is the before (click photos to enlarge):
I sanded and then primed the cabinets first. I bought Martha Stewart brand paint in a pretty creamy white color. Gave the cabinets a coat of paint, then when they dried I used a Ralph Lauren glaze over them.
I absolutely love the way they turned out! They have held up great, I was worried that the paint would peel or chip. With 4 kids and lots of use there has been none of that!
I also wanted to add knobs to the cabinets. I was so lucky and found a bag of 88 wooden knobs at a thrift store for $1.99. Can you believe that!?! 88 brand new knobs!
I love how much a simple item can change the look in such a big way.
It took about a week to complete, the sanding was the worst part (it always is!). It was definitely worth the work put into it! I love it!
