Kitchen Cabinet Reveal - FINALLY!

So, have you all been waiting patiently for the BEFORE & AFTER pictures of my kitchen cabinets? Well, I apologize for making you wait so long, but it has been a long day and we just got home not too long ago. I still had to put the knobs on the doors and clean up the kitchen and well I am finally done. I bought some knobs last night...... got them home and didn't like them. So, we returned them today and headed to North Shore Primitives. I purchased my new curtains and Vickie told me to go with good old plain wooden knobs. So, I went off to Wal-Mart and purchased all of the knobs that they had. I am about 5 or so knobs short so my drawers do not have knobs yet, but I didn't want you all to wait any longer. Anyway, I decided to go with the coffee stained prairie curtains and I am glad that I did. I think they look so prim and they look FABULOUS with my new and so much improved kitchen cabinets. Ok, without further a-do....... let's take a look - shall we ladies?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is the BEFORE pictures of the kitchen cabinets
Are you ready for the AFTER pictures?

I can't hear you?
Did you say you were ready?
This REVEAL is BIGGER then the bathroom
and
BETTER then the bathroom too!
Ok, I guess I have made you wait long enough.......
Here you go - be sure to soak it all in and enjoy
the
PURE BEAUTY OF THIS KITCHEN!!



Don't you love my new prairie curtains?
Here are the knobs........a simple wood knob and I stained them dark walnut
So, what do you all think? Was it well worth the wait?
I know for a FACT that it was well worth every single drop of sweat, sleepless night and hardwork that I endured. It will be worth it for you too.
Go ahead and give it a try and trust me..... you won't regret it!

Trudy said...

What a beautiful makeover!! Isn't it amazing what a change a little paint/stain and good old 'sweat' can do?

I would love to try that on my kitchen, but my Hub's would freak as they are only about five years old and solid maple. Someday....I'll just do it.

Love the curtains as well, they add the perfect finishing touch as do the knobs.

Now, make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit down and enjoy the view:)

The cabinets turned out wonderful. I love the contrast between the walls and color you used. It makes all your prim things just pop. You must tell us the brand of the curtains. I love them. Now go put your feet up and treat yourself to your favorite beverage.

I love your new cabinets. What a difference just painting cabinets can make in a kitchen. I start painting mine this week. I'm doing them in a sage color and then a glaze over them. The good part is they are new and I don't have to take them down. My fiance thought I had lost my mind when I first told him what I was doing with brand new cabinets. Men....

Great job, your kitchen looks fantastic!

Plaids-n-Prims said...
