Another set of cabinets, complete…
Well, just the upper half.
That’s why you will only see the top in these photos.
I’m so impatient.
I had several questions/comments about how I did this cabinet makeover.
Yes, these are oak cabinets.
I sanded each door lightly.
Then I added three coats of white paint. Just basic white paint from WalMart.
Then I sanded the edges for a distressed finish.
I am planning to slap on a quick coat of sealer.
Another extra fence board, which I used for a pot hanger,
using the same stencil as my “fresh eggs” sign.
(See my previous post)
To all those out there who doubt painting the cabinets,
I say GO FOR IT!
This was one of the few projects I tackled on my own
(without my sweet hubbys help).
Oh, I should say I cheated a little…
and didn’t paint the insides of the doors 😉
I still have a whole lot more to finish.
So, keep checking in!
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
I’m off to LaurieAnna’s in Canton!!!!
I promised my hubby I would take him
I’m sharing with these terrific ladies…

I love how your kitchen is turning out. I need to repaint all my kitchen cabinets too. This is great inspiration.
I hope I can get to Canton this weekend. What are your solid countertops, love them?
I really like you style!!~ You have a great eye and do a fantastic job. I am sure you have inspired some gals to paint their cabinets now. Have a wonderful time. Debbie
Just found your blog and love your vintage, chippy style…. I painted/glazed my kitchen cabinets about 9 years ago. They are due for a new color now. Either that or I need a total reno! LOL Mine took about 7 coats of paint/glaze/finish and came out looking like an old French kitchen, but now I want a new look.
Your new white cabinetry is so clean and fresh looking and befits your style so well. I LOVE your scale and your bottle holder. I have seen reproduction holders in catalogs, but even they cost an arm and a leg. I guess I will just dream… hope you'll come by for a visit sometime. glad to have found ya! 🙂 Sue
What a beautiful job your did. Impressive!
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your trip,
Love the cabinets!! I did mine years ago and they are do for another redo!!

I think it might have worked! Show your first reveal post to my husband and he loved the way it looked too!!! That project got bumped to #1 on my fall list!!
Happy Friday Pretties……Love Ria…..your kitchen is wonderful i like it !!
What a gorgeous kitchen! I adore how you left the doors off of a few cabinets.
Hi: Just happened by and I love how you decorate. You have great taste and style. I love white but have yet to incorporate it into my home because I have many cats and I don't think the two mix well. I'm your new follower. Deb (Ottawa, Canada) =^..^=x5
So Pretty! I know it's a lot of work, but so worth the effort! It looks great!
Your kitchen is really lovely~ and I love the fence board pot rack!
I wonder how the two cabs look together? I am considering just painting the tops white and keeping bottoms maple….wish you would show a pic of the whole room!
Such beautiful touches in there, and I love the sanded edges. What a neat space to cook in!
You kitchen is fabulous in the making…
Actually, it was already fab before, so I can only imagine what it will be like when it is fully done.
Everything is looking beautiful – love your cake plates! Can't wait to see it all!

Your cabinets and kitchen look great!
Wow what a great kitchen. I love the pumpkin color on the walls, so warm for the kitchen. I love to go to Canton too, such great finds!
I found you through Laurie Anna's Vintage Home blog. I fell in love with your painted cabinets. Mine are oak and I want to paint them and take the doors off so bad. Love yours!! I enjoyed reading all the way back to your first post. I hope you can have your own shop one day. You are certainly a very talented lady. I am very sorry about your sweet Mom. She was a beautiful woman. I look forward to following your blog. Love & blessings from NC!
