What's clean, shiny and white all over?


My kitchen cabinets!!!! We spent the weekend sanding, cleaning and painting my kitchen cabinets and they look so pretty. The rest of the kitchen is still a mess as we have stuff everywhere - so you only get to see a head shot, so to speak, of a couple of the cabinets. After three trips to Lowes and one to Home Depot we finally found enough hinges to replace all the hinges on the old cabinets, add in new knobs and drawer pulls and lots of shiny white paint. I wanted silver hinges, but had to settle for white as that is all we could find enough of...but I really think the white looks better than the silver did. Now..on to new counter tops and then we knock a whole in the wall to create a doorway into my dining room. We'll paint the walls after we get the doorway finished.

The cabinets look great. It's amazing what a coat of paint can do.

Your cabinets look so fresh! I like the white knobs too. Love your cookbook shelf! Can't wait to see the final kitchen pictures.

Hmm, it's surprising what a fridge can cause huh?
Looks great and it takes no time to get settled again.

Hi Theresa, the cabinets are looking wonderful! It is a lot of work, but will last a long time, and think how much you'll enjoy it! Hugs, Finn(who should be cleaning *VBS*)

Looking good! We remodeled our kitchen a few years ago and painted our cabinets too - what a great change! Enjoy your "new" cabinets!
