Cabinet Reveal

That's right! After a few months of half-heartedly painting on a few cabinets I can now say they are finished! Woo, hoo. I'm not sure what took me so long to complete this project. I was excited, motivated, and amply supplied. But the job just kept getting pushed off. I updated a few times ( herehere) and even rearranged the kitchen.  I finally kicked myself hard enough to pull out the brushes until it was completed. Sadly enough, it's only one side of the kitchen that is finished. In my tiny defense, I haven't decided what color I would like to do the remaining cabinets. they are all upper ones and do not necessarily have to match the already painted ones.

So, here is the finished project!

Please excuse the grainy- ness of the photo. We live in a duplex that has windows on one side. Makes taking pictures of that particular side difficult. I am by NO means a good photographer, so this is the best I can do.

The cabinet doors are warped and will not close. We are still working on trying to fix that. I think it's a lost cause. The knobs are from Target and the black hinges are from Lowes.

I didn't edit the colors here, so you get a truer view of the gray. The black knobs are from Lowes. We didn't have to replace the hinges on the upper cabinets, so they were painted gray.

Here is a before and after shot so that you don't have to scroll back up.

I really like how the kitchen turned out! The colors are great and I think it makes the place look larger and maybe newer?

I don't know if I want to paint the other side gray or blue.

I wish I could find an updated picture.  But the layout is the same. I think the blue would be a lot of fun. But the owners might like the subtle ness of the gray. In usual fashion, I will sit on the idea for a while.

One last shot of the new cabinets :)
