Luckily, my husband is more gifted than I am in the handy department. The cabinets throughout our house have been the wrong side of ugly since I moved in 6 years ago. Charles was inspired by a visit to his sister last summer. We experimented with the tiny cabinet in the hall bath, moved onto the bigger cabinet bank in the master.
Then, at 6 in the a on Saturday, with rain pouring and me climbing back under the covers, Little finally asleep again, he decided that the time had come to tackle the big bad kitchen. Not being totally crazy, only the lower cabinets were done on this go-round, but now the uppers look even worse, so I'm sure they'll get the fix-up sometime soonish.
Step 1: remove cabinet doors, empty drawers and fronts of cabinets, deglaze
|All our stuff out for everyone to see|
Step 2: paint
|So much better already|
Step 3: glaze with rustic stain-y stuff (thanks Rustoleum)
Step 4: top coat (see: I did help!)
|Yes, I always wear the grey cardi-thing. And yes, those are gingerbread pj pants.|
