Painting Kitchen Cabinets
The problem with being married for 20 years is that everything gets old. I'm not just talking about me and him, but all of our stuff. Since we have just replaced the refrigerator and dishwasher, everything else is on hold. One of the many things in desperate need of replacement or updating are our kitchen cabinets. Our house was built in 1984 and these cabinets are original to the house. They are oak and have aged to a sort of unpleasant orange color. Replacing the cabinets was out of the question. So, painting them was the only affordable option.
I wanted to brighten up the kitchen, so I choose a soft white. To go with the retro feel of my decor (if I may be so bold as to call it decor), I chose some brushed stainless handles with a real retro feel.
I'm really excited and pleased at how it is turning out. You can see that the counter top will need to be replaced. And please don't look to closely at our disgusting floor (which is also probably 23 years old)! We are trying to decide what to do with the floor. Maybe hardwood or some sort of tile-like looking floor. Any suggestions.
