Painted Cabinet doors

Not finished yet, but I was too excited! We got the lower cabinet doors painted, glazed, and hung. We are still working on the upper ones. But, it is so much better to have the doors on! The one to the right of the stove hasn't been glazed yet so you can see how much the glaze tones down the white color. For two years we have had other things to do and have lived with them open like this. It has driven me crazy!

View from foyer entry.

TThe island that seats six people. I cannot wait to get new countertops. This is horrible. I wipe them and they immediately are messy looking again.

Close up of the doors. They were oak. They also had exposed hinges that were ugly. My husband routed out and added hidden hinges which are so much nicer. We also added the new knobs and pulls.

I have ugly, basic, builder grade oak cabinets that I hate. I have been thinking about painting them, but so afraid that I will mess them up.

Your's look great! What kind/brand of paint and glaze did you use?

Hi Holly! It's Laurie from baseball :) - those cabinets are GORGEOUS - I think you inspired me to do a little more kitchen fluffing!

I am glad to see that you have both glazed and unglazed to compare. My untrained eye sometimes has a hard time seeing the difference...this was helpful for me.

I bet you'll be happy when they're finished.

it is Lowes Olympic Kitchen and Bath in semi gloss. The color is Navajo White. The glaze is American Tradition faux translucent color glaze in Mocha. I will be doing a blog post on the steps we did to paint them. I am copying the Kraftmaid cabinets at Lowes/Home Depot in color and style. We sprayed ours.
