Painting Kitchen Cabinets
I decided awhile ago that I was going to paint my cabinets. After searching and researching and finally settling, I decided to go for a two toned cabinet. Our local Sherwin Williams store was having a sale and so I went in and told the guy what I wanted to do, and he suggested a semi-gloss interior/exterior acrylic paint. I got it in Stolen Kiss (7586), and the upper cabinets I used the same as my wall color which is Olympic satin Love Bird (c30-3)--it kind of tickles me that both colors are all cutesy lovey, makes me happy!
Before I painted the cabinets I decided I wanted to put some bead board wallpaper inside the inserts. I really could have been more precise with cutting the squares but its a messy process and I was just wanting to get it done. After I put the paper in and it had dried for 24 hours, I went back in and caulked the edges to fix any edges that weren't even and also to make sure it wasn't going to come up EVER. :)
Then I started with the red paint, it was going on the bottom cabinets and up one side where they weren't separated.
Then I got started with the white up top:
After I finished painting, I decided I wanted to glaze them and lucky for me my cousin had some leftover glaze she wasn't using. Next update will be that!
