I finished renovating my Kitchen Cabinets and Counters, doors and trim on Friday, 11/1. I am in love with my kitchen again. It took me between 45 and 50 hours to complete not only the Cabinets and Counters but also the Pantry door, counter in between Living room and kitchen and the Kitchen and the Door leading to my Dining room and the trims. It cost me between $200 and $250. Isn’t that Great? It went from a clinically old white with stains to a warm inviting Faux granite and wood look. A look that will hide stains and will last for another 5 – 10 years.
Instead of just starting I went to The Home Depot and brought home free samples (plus minus 12). As a family we decided which ones we like best. My husband and daughter outvoted me but I have to say I am happy with the result. The choice was a High Gloss Birch Cherry for the Cabinets and the Mountain Passage granite laminate for the Counters. Look at the samples I created before I started HERE. The final Product came out even better than I could dream for.
What I used.
base: Glidden High Gloss Spiced Ginger
Sponging: Glidden Eggshell Onyx Black mixed with Behr Faux Glaze with big sponge marks
Glidden Eggshell Toasted Coconut mixed with Behr Faux Glaze splatter and finer marks
Work a Spiced Ginger/Glaze mixed in to soften highlights
I will be working on how to videos and slide shows for the rest of the week to show this special transformation. More color and more images.
